Dave Palsrok (R-Manistee), as their 2004 Federal Legislator of the Year and State Legislator of the Year, respectively. In addition, legislative aides Patrick Rothwell, senior legislative assistant to U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Livonia) will be recognized as the League’s 2004 Federal Staffer of the Year. Jennifer Spike-DeBano, legislative director to Michigan House Speaker Craig DeRoche (R-Novi) will be recognized as the 2004 State Staffer of the Year. Stupak was elected to his seventh term in Congress and is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Palsrok was first elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in 2002. During the 2003-04 legislative session, he served on the House Commerce Committee and chaired the Financial Services Subcommittee. Rothwell has been a member of Rep.
