Rep. Mike Harris, R-Clarkston, opened his Lansing office this week after being sworn in as a new member of the Michigan House of Representatives.
“I am honored and thankful for this opportunity to serve our Oakland County community in a new way,” said Harris, a former Waterford Township police sergeant. “I will work to make Michigan a safer place to raise your family and a better place to pursue the American dream.

Harris represents the 43rd District, which includes Clarkston, Lake Angelus, Independence Township and part of Waterford Township in Oakland County. Earlier this month, he won a special election to finish the two-year term started by Rep. Andrea Schroeder, who passed away last year. The term runs through the end of 2022.
Harris was assigned this week to the House Energy, Insurance and Transportation committees.
