Pavlov announces Great Lakes Town Hall

State Sen. Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township, has scheduled an open Town Hall on Friday, June 7 with special guests Jon Allan, director of the Office of the Great Lakes, and Dave Lorenz, Industry Relations & International Marketing manager of the Pure Michigan campaign. These experts will discuss how healthy Great Lakes and a robust tourism industry benefit Michigan’s environment and economy.

Residents of Michigan’s Thumb will be able to personally ask questions of the top authorities on the Great Lakes and tourism industries. The Pure Michigan campaign has continuously been voted the best state advertising campaign in the country. In 2012, it generated $5.76 for every dollar spent, and 3.8 million visitors generated $1.1 billion in revenue for Michigan businesses.

The local Mama Vicki's Coney Island will be serving FREE coney dogs for all who come to the event.

“We are excited to bring the director of the Office of the Great Lakes and manager of Industry Relations for Pure Michigan to Fort Gratiot County Park on the shores of Lake Huron,” Pavlov said. “You don’t have to look any further than the Blue Water area to take full advantage of all that Pure Michigan has to offer. I hope that this community discussion will benefit Michigan’s Thumb and build upon our continued growth and success.”
