Congressman, Jack Bergman was in town Monday making a pit stop to the Rotary Club’s meeting.

The Congressman touched base on many topics including Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, Pipeline 5, and other issues within Northeast Michigan. One key topic of discussion includes the Congressman’s plan to decrease the opioid crisis.
