State Rep. Kathy Crawford to serve as Master of Ceremonies at Lincoln Day dinner
March 2, 2016

NOVI, MI -  State Representative Kathy Crawford (R-Novi) will serve as the “Master of Ceremonies” at the 127th Lincoln Day Dinner on Monday, March 7 at the Troy Marriott on Big Beaver Road in Troy.

The Lincoln Day Dinner is a fundraiser sponsored by the Oakland County Republican Club (OCRP). This year’s event is scheduled one day before the Michigan Presidential Primary Election. The keynote speaker will be Ohio Governor and Presidential Candidate John Kasich. All Republican Presidential candidates were invited to speak at this event.

Theresa Mungioli, OCRP’s Chairwoman, named Crawford the Master of Ceremonies for this huge event after the freshman representative successfully served in the same function at the Judicial Investiture Ceremony for the Honorable Jeff Matis last December.

Crawford, well-known for her excellent (and jovial) public speaking style, was truly humbled by the announcement that she would serve as this year’s Master of Ceremonies.

“It is an honor and privilege to serve the Republican Party as the ‘Mistress’ of Ceremonies at the Lincoln Day Dinner,” Crawford said. “I just hope all the honorees and dignitaries are ready for some fun and laughs. That’s the only way I truly know how to host an event.”

Crawford, who recently was been named the mParks “Elected Official of the Year” by the 2,000 member Michigan Recreation and Parks Association (MRPA), represents the 38th District in the state House, which includes Novi, Novi Township, Lyon Township, South Lyon, Walled Lake and the Oakland County portion of the city of Northville.

Two months ago, Crawford was named one of six “Legislators To Watch” in 2016 by the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Crawford is a first-term State Representative, after serving her native city of Novi for the past seven years as an Oakland County Commissioner and Novi City Council Member. During the past 14 months in Lansing, Crawford never has missed a committee or general session vote. In fact, she missed receiving her mParks award because she was in session during the MRPA Conference in Traverse City.
