Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist visited the City of Taylor and Mayor Rick Sollars caught up to him at the Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens on August 8th. State Senator Erika Geiss and State Representative Alex Garza were taking Gilchrist on a tour of the area, including several other stops in Taylor.
Geiss explained how busy The Conservatory is during its "Music & Arts in the Gardens" each Wednesday evening, as hundreds gather and listen to some excellent bands.
Mayor Sollars explained some of the history of The Conservatory, and how key donors and volunteers created the beautiful facility, located near the corner of Pardee and North Line roads.
Gilchrist is the first African-American Lt. governor in Michigan history.
