LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Kevin Daley, R-Lum, issued the following statement on Wednesday in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s announcement that the state is re-examining the Caro Center’s ongoing construction projects:
“I’m very disappointed in the governor’s decision to re-examine the need for the Caro Center project.
“The opening of the new Caro Psychiatric Hospital was something that former Representative Canfield, Senator Mike Green and Governor Snyder worked so diligently to get approved last year.
“The decision was made for the hospital to remain in Caro and the state has already spent over $3 million on the project. Local governments have already invested, and many residents are counting on this project for jobs.
“The Caro Center is the second largest employer in Tuscola county and I am committed to working hard to making sure that this project is completed. There is too much at stake for the community.”
