January 10, 2019
LANSING - Sen. Betty Jean Alexander (D–Detroit) took the oath of office today to serve the citizens of Michigan's 5th Senate District.
"It's an honor to serve the people of Michigan's 5th Senate district, and it's time we have a representative who understands the struggles of living in difficult economic circumstances," Sen. Alexander said. "As a proud single mother of two, I know how tough it is to make ends meet, and we need to give hardworking, struggling families a fair shot to succeed. We also need to increase the minimum wage, ensure every Michigander has access to a quality education, make our drinking water safe, and lower auto insurance rates."
Sen. Alexander begins her first term in the Michigan Senate with LaMar Lemmons, her chief of staff. The 5th Senate District in Wayne County includes the cities of Dearborn Heights, Detroit, Garden City, Inkster and the Township of Redford.
