FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oct. 17, 2014

Representative Nancy Jenkins Named Legislator of the Year

Jenkins Honored by Michigan Municipal League at 2014 Convention in Marquette

MARQUETTE, Michigan — The Michigan Municipal League honored State Rep. Nancy Jenkins (R-Clayton) as the League’s 2014 Legislator of the Year. The award was formerly announced during the League’s Annual Convention Oct. 16, 2014 in Marquette.

Rep. Jenkins represents Michigan’s 57th House District, which covers most of Lenawee County, including the cities of Adrian, Hudson, Morenci, and Tecumseh. She is a strong advocate for equity-based crowdfunding in Michigan, which involves Michigan residents supporting Michigan businesses they know, love and appreciate. This unique form of financing will help spur economic development in new and existing businesses.

“Not only has Representative Jenkins introduced and successfully signed into law this piece of legislation to allow intrastate equity crowdfunding, she also has another piece of legislation to further grow crowdfunding by creating the ability to form and set parameters around local stock exchanges in Michigan,” said League CEO and Executive Director Dan Gilmartin. “We sincerely thank Representative Jenkins for all of her dedication to helping our small businesses and local communities.”

About the Legislator of the Year Award: The honor is presented each fall to lawmakers for their instrumental actions in the Michigan State Legislature on behalf of local communities. These individuals are recognized for their efforts in the passage of legislation that will benefit local governments or who have fought consistently to support local government.
