Local Cable Stations to Air New Show: Lansing from a New Perspective

(Lansing, MI) — This month, several local cable stations will begin airing a new cable show moderated by Senator Patrick Colbeck (R-Canton).  The show, titled Lansing from a New Perspective, will feature discussions aimed at addressing topics of importance to residents of the 7th State Senate District.

“It is important to me as a representative of our district in Lansing that we find as many avenues as possible to let people’s voices be heard,” Colbeck said. “The cable show is one opportunity to expand the discussions and bring together people with differing views as we seek to find the best ideas for moving our state forward.”

The first installment of the program will run through the month of April. The show is scheduled to run on the Comcast cable system on Tuesdays at 7 p.m.; on Channel 12 of Van Buren Township’s cable system VBTV on Mondays and Thursdays at 2 p.m. and 11 p.m.; and Sumpter Township’s Community Access Channel, Channel 12, at various times daily.

April’s show features several residents of the 7th District in a discussion about Michigan’s education system. April’s guests include: Paula Ford from Plymouth, Dan Kurt from Canton, Carla Malcomson from Flat Rock and Ann Haener-Maghren from Grosse Ile. The panel guests are parents with children in at least one of our state’s four different schooling options: a public district school, a private school, a public school academy and a homeschool.

“This month’s show features a dynamic panel of individuals who all bring their different experiences with our state’s education system to the table. During the show we discuss the pros and cons of the education experience we are providing to Michigan’s children. I encourage district residents to watch the show and then share their opinions with me.”
