LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Curtis Hertel, Jr. (D–East Lansing) took the oath of office today to serve the citizens of Michigan’s 23rd Senate District.

“Our schools are struggling, our roads are crumbling, college education is the least affordable it’s ever been, and wages are stagnant, yet I have never been more hopeful that we can deliver solutions to these problems,” Sen. Hertel said. “The people need us to focus on these problems, listen more to them, and invest in solutions that help all Michiganders, and I see an opportunity to do just that with the new Legislature and new Governor. Real solutions require us to work together, put people first, and invest in the people of Michigan.”

Sen. Hertel begins his second term in the Michigan Senate with his Chief of Staff Kathleen O’Reilly Farhat, and Legislative Aides Lauren Bohac and Edwin Dichoza.

The 23rd Senate District is located in Ingham County and includes the cities of East Lansing, Lansing, Leslie and Mason, and the townships of Alaiedon, Aurelius, Bunker Hill, Delhi Charter, Ingham, Lansing, Leslie, Meridian, Onondaga, Stockbridge, Vevay and White Oak.
