"Barb VanderVeen is a candidate of the highest quality," said Michigan Chamber President and CEO James Barrett. "She is pro-business, pro-jobs and pro-taxpayer. Her involvement and experience in business and education and her position on the issues will make her a great State Representative."

The current State Representative is ineligible to run for re-election due to term limits.

"Job creators here and across the state look to the Michigan Chamber as a leading voice on business issues," said Barb VanderVeen. "I am pleased to receive their endorsement and their confidence."
