Sen. Kahn: Frankenmuth SOS office should remain open

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

LANSING — State Sen. Roger Kahn, R-Saginaw, issued the following statement concerning the secretary of state’s plans to close the branch office in Frankenmuth:

“Closing the Frankenmuth office and consolidating it with a branch in Saginaw Township to offer ‘enhanced’ services makes no sense when the people of Frankenmuth will have to drive more than 40 miles round trip every time they register to vote or renew their license plate tabs. This just doesn’t make sense.

“While many service improvements have been made in recent years, the secretary of state should stay focused on bringing services closer to the people – not making them drive further and further just to receive assistance. Shutting down this office is a mistake.

“I sincerely hope the secretary of state will seriously reconsider closing the Frankenmuth branch. I urge concerned residents to stand up and let their voices be heard.”
