► Campaign announcement
Southfield City Councilman Jeremy Moss, a Democrat, announced he will run for the Michigan House of Representatives seat that will be vacated by State Rep. Rudy Hobbs (D – Southfield) in 2014.
“I’m a lifelong resident of this community. The people who live in Michigan’s 35th House District are my neighbors, friends, family and former classmates from this district’s public school system – and, as a Southfield city councilman, many are my constituents already. I am deeply connected with their concerns,” Moss said. “I work every day as a problem solver as their representative in local government but Lansing continues to give us more problems to solve. This state government has put extra burdens on the seniors and working families in this district and has spent taxpayer funds on tax breaks to big corporations – all while threatening the funding and stability of local governments. That’s not right and I’m going to fight on behalf of my neighbors to make sure the state invests in Michigan’s middle class."
► What others are saying
"In an era of term-limits, Jeremy’s experience will be an incredible resource to other policymakers in Lansing and to the constituents in his district. I know first-hand what it takes to tackle complex statewide issues and I know Jeremy is ready to serve."
- Former State Representative Paul Condino (D-Southfield)
"Jeremy has been an integral part of the Southfield team, helping to balance our city budget while still working to provide quality services to our residents. The fiscal discipline he has demonstrated in city government and his commitment to the citizens he represents are exactly the qualities we need in an effective state representative. There is no one better for the job."
- Councilman Kenson Siver, Southfield
"Jeremy’s leadership is felt beyond the Southfield borders. He’s already proven himself to be a fearless and tireless worker on behalf of his constituents and I know he will represent this entire district with that same enthusiasm and dedication."
- Councilwoman Maria Mannarino Thompson, Lathrup Village
