BAYER ENDORSES ANNESS IN DEM PRIMARY FOR 45TH HOUSE: Sen. Rosemary Bayer (D-Beverly Hills) has endorsed Rochester Community Schools Board of Education member Barb Anness in the 45th House District.
Ms. Anness is going up against Brendan Johnson of Rochester, whose background includes interning for Republican former Rep. Pete Lund and more recently for U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Holly), in the Democratic primary.
"I'm delighted to endorse Barb Anness for state representative for Greater Rochester's 45th District. Barb is a tireless and fierce advocate for Greater Rochester," Ms. Bayer said in a statement. "She has spent close to two decades working on behalf of families – as an appointed and reelected trustee of Rochester Community Schools, and as an education advocate on the local, and state level. Barb brings her message of public-school education equality to our nation's Capital every year as federal legislative chair for Michigan PTA, where she directly advocates our Congressional representatives on behalf of all schoolchildren in Michigan."
