State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township) was reelected to represent the 23rd District during the 2018 election.
“I’m immensely proud of our team of volunteers and supporters who worked so hard to carry our message to voters across Downriver,” Camilleri said in a statement Wednesday morning.
“It’s because of your continued support, your belief, and your collective action that we were able to be successful here tonight. Thank you for fighting alongside me every day as we work toward better opportunity for all Downriver families.”
Camilleri congratulated Republican challenger Michael Frazier on a good campaign and thanked voters across Downriver for their support during the election cycle.
“Throughout my first term in office, I’ve fought for the issues that Downriver families care about–quality healthcare, clean water, excellent public schools, and a Downriver that’s built to last. I’m excited and ready to continue our fight for a stronger Downriver, and with supporters like ours, I believe that anything is possible.”
Camilleri said that since being elected, he and his team have knocked on over 30,000 doors and made nearly 20,000 phone calls to constituents to talk about the issues facing Downriver.
In Huron Township, Camilleri received 3,287 votes to Frazier’s 3,284 votes in a very close race.
The 23rd District includes the communities of Brownstown Township, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile Township, Huron Township, Trenton, and Woodhaven.
