Rep. Mike Harris of Waterford will have a leadership position among House Republicans for the upcoming 2023-24 term in the Michigan Legislature.
Harris was elected by colleagues as the Republican caucus chief deputy whip, a job of critical importance in communicating key information to legislators. Harris will help keep colleagues up to date on important issues and decisions coming up on the House floor. He also will be part of the team serving as a liaison between caucus leaders and other members, tracking votes and assisting legislators with policy-related questions.
“This is a critical time for Michigan families and communities – and I will continue to fight for what’s right,” Harris said. “I am committed to pursuing the policies we need to build a brighter future for our state.”
Harris was recently re-elected to the Michigan House. He currently represents the 43rd District, which includes Clarkston, Lake Angelus, Independence Township and part of Waterford Township in Oakland County. When the new Legislature convenes in January, he will represent the 52nd District covering many of the same communities.
“The Michigan State Police conducts criminal background checks to help protect the most vulnerable Michiganders of all ages, but the system needs updating for our state to continue facilitating this resource,” Harris said.
“Michigan government should be open and accountable to the people it serves, but our state has consistently lagged behind in basic, fundamental government transparency,” said Harris, R-Waterford.
