State Representative Pauline Wendzel is endorsing Michael Brown for governor of Michigan. This makes her the latest elected official in southwest Michigan to back the Michigan State Police captain. Wendzel says, “Captain Mike has been an invaluable resource to me as a State Representative on law enforcement issues and initiatives to improve public safety.” She cites his youth on a farm, service in the U.S. Marine Corps, and time as a county commissioner as reasons she backs him. Brown thanked her for her support. Wendzel becomes the second state representative to endorse Brown. Previously, state Representative Beth Griffin endorsed Brown.
