Commissioner Maurice Imhoff Says Job Creation, Economic Development Must Be a Top Priority for Michigan’s Leaders

Maurice Imhoff, Commissioner for the City of Jackson’s Historic District, says that job creation and growing Michigan’s economy needs to be the top priority for the state’s leaders.

He joins leaders like Governor Whitmer in making this a priority as evidenced by the Whitmer administration’s recent constellation of legislation aimed at expanding the state’s labor force and growing jobs. There are two bills, HB 5983 and 5984, that will be a boon to the hospitality industry and a third, HB 5555, that will lessen the tax burden on seasonal businesses.

The Governor, for her part, explained the laws’ passage by saying that “Michiganders are counting on us to continue growing Michigan’s economy, creating good-paying jobs, and lowering costs for working families who are facing rising prices at the grocery store and the gas pump.”

Commissioner Imhoff, who is running for Michigan’s House of Representatives in the newly-drawn 46th District, is a member of the City of Jackson’s Historic District Commission and its Human Relations Commission. He works as a policy associate advocating for “policies, programs, and projects” that bring economic justice to Michigan workplaces.
