house Resolution No.349

The Speaker, on behalf of the entire membership of the House of Representatives, offered the following resolution:

A resolution of tribute for the Honorable Kristy Pagan.

Whereas, It is with great appreciation that we thank Representative Kristy Pagan for her service with the Michigan House of Representatives over the past six years. Representative Pagan was first elected in 2014 and served the people of the Twenty-first District, comprising the city of Belleville and the majorities of Canton and Van Buren townships. Over the past three terms, she has served her district and all of Michigan with integrity and honor; and

Whereas, Representative Pagan brought a wide range of policy experience to Lansing due to her work in child nutrition and education policy in Washington, D.C.  After graduating with a master's degree in political management from George Washington University, Representative Pagan started her own business dedicated to civic and community engagement in Michigan. Representative Pagan brought a community-focused perspective to a number of legislative issues to the benefit of her constituents and all the people of Michigan; and

Whereas, While serving in the House, Representative Pagan became a valuable member of several committees and subcommittees, including Appropriations, Oversight and Ethics, and Health and Human Services. She served as minority vice chair of the appropriations subcommittees on Education, Judiciary, Natural Resources, Corrections, and School Aid and Department of Education. Representative Pagan pushed for legislation related to education, discrimination and equality, and women’s health, and continued to remain active and involved in the communities she represented throughout her tenure; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we offer this expression of tribute to commend and thank the Honorable Kristy Pagan for her notable contributions to this legislative body and to our state; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to Representative Pagan as evidence of our gratitude and best wishes.
