Marenisco - State Sen. Tom Casperson said he was not informed ahead of time by the Michigan Department of Corrections of its decision to close the Ojibway Correctional Facility in Marenisco before the DOC's public announcement Tuesday morning. Ojibway was on a short list of possible closings and while the public was waiting to hear the DOC's decision many, including Casperson, thought the decision would be made in September.

State Senator Tom Casperson claims " HE DID NOT KNOW AHEAD OF TIME?" HELLO?? Not doing your job are you? Did you also NOT KNOW that Ojibway was on the chopping block LAST YEAR 2017??? NO? Last year it was between West Shoreline in Muskegon and Ojibway. This was no surprise to ANYONE living in the UP. The fact that prison inmates are at a 20 year low in MIchigan is GREAT NEWS!!! However, this also means more closures. Your staff is NOT doing their job.... and bottom line? It really looks bad when most people were very much aware of this and YOU WERE NOT!

he DID NOT KNOW??? How is that possible when I, who live in California, knew that it was ALMOST CLOSED LAST DECEMBER??? Two prisons were up for closure last year - Ojibway "escaped"....Caspers on is either a moron or does not belong in office. This was WIDELY PUBLICIZED!!! ASK ANYONE IN THE PRISON SYSTEM IN MICHIGAN!!!
