Calvin College Press, Sep 5, 2017 - Legislators - 128 pages
"In 1974, Vernon J. Ehlers, a physicist and college professor, decided to run for the Kent County Commission on a solid waste disposal platform. It was the beginning of a remarkable 37 years in public service in the county government, the Michigan state legislature, and the United States Congress, where Ehlers represented Michigan's 3rd district from 1993-2011. Ehlers brought all of his intellect and professional expertise as a physicist to his political work, pursuing science-oriented policy areas he felt uniquely called to serve. This book explores Ehlers's life, his vocation, and his legacy of intelligent policy and throughtful compassion that stemmed from the deeply held convictions of his Christian faith."--Back cover.
