Dearborn's Darany Introduces 14 Pieces of Legislation in 2011

A look back at the Dearborn representative's first year in office.

For Rep. George T. Darany (D-Dearborn), 2011 was a busy year.

The former Dearborn City Council member began his first term in the Michigan House of Representatives in January 2011, and has since introduced nine bills, five resolutions and two amendments, as well as co-sponsoring another 197 pieces of legislation.

Darany touted his first year in office as a productive one for the citizens of Dearborn.

“Since the day I was sworn into office last year, the interests and well-being of my constituents have come first," Darany said in a statement. "I have greatly appreciated all of the input and feedback I received from Dearborn residents throughout 2011 and I look forward to continued communication as the 2012 legislative session gets underway.

"While we saw a number of contentious bills signed into law last year, I feel optimistic about the future of our state and it is my hope that this year will lead to greater bi-partisan cooperation and collaboration.”

Darany was also recognized as one of 61 representatives out of the 110 members of the House of Representatives who was present for all 613 votes taken in 2011.

“It has been such an honor and a privilege to represent this community and I understand that if I miss a vote, then it is the hard-working people of my hometown who pay the price," Darany said. "Every vote we take is an opportunity to move Michigan forward and I am committed to using these opportunities to make sure that our state is headed in the right direction.”

There is not one bill or resolution related to improving Michigan's economic climate. In fact, Rep. Darany has voted against every reform, restructuring and reinvention bill in 2011. These are the bills which are helping to create an enironment that will lead to economic growth in our state and Rep. Darany is voting NO on every one!

Even so, as you say, he voted no, we still have those taxes. Why was not this issue voted on by the people of this state? (the same way our property taxes were voted on). This was the dictate of one man...Snyder). Let us make sure this man is a one term wonder.
