(WASHINGTON, DC) – A Sturgis man has been appointed to an international commission.
Robert Sisson was confirmed Thursday by the U.S. Senate to serve as a Commissioner on the International Joint Commission for United States and Canada. This is a bi-nation agency that oversees the management of waters between the United States and Canada, and works to protect them for the benefit of both nations.
U.S. Representative Fred Upton issued a media release, saying that Michigan now has an incredibly strong local voice and advocate in this prominent position. He says Sisson is going to make a difference for Michigan and our country, and is proud that Rob will be serving in this critical role.
On his Facebook page, Sisson says he wants to thank so many people who worked on his behalf over the last two and a half years, especially Upton and his Chief Of Staff, who championed his nomination and believed in him the whole way.
Sisson also thanked his family, the entire Sturgis community and several others for helping him. He says he is excited and unbelievably honored to work with his U.S. and Canadian colleagues on boundary water issues.
