Aaron Miller

Republican, incumbent

Aaron Miller was first elected to serve the 59th District in the Michigan House of Representatives in November 2014 and is currently serving his second term. He graduated from Western Michigan University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education with a focus in political science and mathematics. He also holds a Master of Education in School Administration from Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana, earned in 2014.

“I will always treat the position of state representative as one of service and humility. This job is definitely not about me. This job is about you; all 93,000 of you. When I get up every day to go to work, whether here or in Lansing, I keep that in mind.”

 

Dennis Smith

Democrat

Dennis Smith graduated from University of Michigan–Flint College and then worked as a teacher before becoming a Lutheran pastor. He retired from pastoral ministry in 2017.

“During thirty-two years of pastoral ministry, I have sought to carry on the commitment to serve ‘the least of these, my brothers and sisters’ (Matthew 25:40) that I first learned as a teacher and member of Holy Trinity in Flint. That is a commitment both Paula and I now carry into the field of public service.”
