Former state Senator John Proos is ready to talk about what he’s doing next. Proos left office last year after 14 years in Michigan government. He told WSJM News on Monday he’s started a consulting firm intended to help businesses and other organizations solve government problems.
“There is a way to solve some of those problems by virtue of some of the experience that I’ve had,” Proos said. “24 years of legislative and government service in southwest Michigan. I’ve spent a decade with [Congressman Fred ] Upton as you’ll recall. It strikes me that I can help some people solve some of those problems and continue to try to make a difference in the communities that I served.”
Proos says JP4 Government Solutions LLC is now up and running. Proos was quick to say it is not a lobbying firm, telling us it will occupy the space between lobbyists and government.
