Department of Attorney General Offers Congratulations to Secretary Benson Upon Receipt of a Presidential Citizen Metal
January 07, 2023
LANSING – Attorney General Dana Nessel, on behalf of the entire Department of Attorney General, extends heartfelt congratulations to Secretary Jocelyn Benson who was honored with a Presidential Citizen Metal yesterday from President Joe Biden:
“Secretary Benson stood up for democracy on behalf of all Michiganders in the face of baseless attacks, frivolous lawsuits, and personal threats,” said Nessel. “Her continuing work as Michigan’s Secretary of State makes it easier for people to vote, improves upon the processes for our clerks and election volunteers, and ensures that our elections are free and fair. In ordinary times, this is a tremendous success. To do so while combatting organized misinformation campaigns, orchestrated from the White House and directly impacting Michigan communities, is extraordinary.”
