State Senator Karen Tallian (D-Ogden Dunes) had the following response to the governor’s pledge of support for the erosion at the Lake Michigan shoreline:
“It’s about time that the governor took this erosion problem seriously. After almost two months since I sent my original letter to the governor asking for an emergency declaration, his response is long overdue. I do thank the governor for finally getting involved, and I hope that an emergency declaration is issued as quickly as possible.”
