State Rep. Greg VanWoerkom (R-Norton Shores) recently posted on Facebook photos of him doing a ride-a-long with a Michigan State Police trooper.

“Last night/early this morning I went on a midnight shift ride-a-long with our boys in blue," VanWoerkom wrote in a Jan. 7 Facebook post. "It turned out to be a routine night for Trooper Orban and I as we patrolled the northern portion of Muskegon County.” 

VanWoerkom went on to say “I appreciated the conversation and insight to what our officers do each and everyday (sic) to keep us safe. Thank you Michigan State Police.”

According to his biography by the Michigan House Republicans, VanWoerkom represents the 91st District, which includes a portion of Muskegon County. He serves in the House as chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee for Agriculture and Rural Development. Additionally, he is the vice-chair for the Subcommittee for Military, Veterans Affairs and State Police. He is also part of the Appropriations Committee, as well as the Subcommittees for General Government and Health and Human Services.

VanWoerkom was elected to the House in 2018.
