I enjoyed discussing the challenges and opportunities facing the 99th Legislature with Tim Skubick and my future colleagues on Off The Record last week!
Hello, my friends. I have several pictures from last night’s unforgettable swearing in ceremony, but I am very excited to share with you this one of your 85th House District staff team! These caring professionals are going to be assisting me to be your voice in state government. I am honored to have Rachel Hoekstra leading our team as Legislative Director. Rachel comes to the role with over a decade of House and Senate service, most recently in the office of the Senate Majority Leader, and will ensure that we hit the ground running from day one. Madi Sholtz will serve as our staff assistant, helping with constituent casework and special projects. Madi is known to many of you from her work on the campaign and hails from Marion Township. Mark Agnew will serve our area as District Liaison, helping to ensure a strong ongoing presence locally. Mark is a Chesaning native, longtime Owosso resident, owner of Agnew Graphics, and a rock solid advocate for veterans and numerous charitable causes. Ciera Love will serve as Constituent Relations Director and manage the beast we know as “Ben’s schedule.” Ciera managed my House campaign over the past year and a half. She previously served as an intern in the House in addition to ongoing leadership roles within Youth in Government and as a Dale Carnegie graduate. I enter this position as State Representative on January 1st feeling confident in and blessed by these talented leaders who have come together to serve you. Look for a further update soon once our office contact information is finalized! Merry Christmas!
