Trenton, MI – State Representative Darrin Camilleri (D-Trenton) is announcing his bid for the Michigan State Senate, running in the newly formed District 4 encompassing the majority of Downriver and southern Wayne County.
The Fourth District includes the communities of Grosse Ile, Gibraltar, Trenton, Riverview, Wyandotte, Southgate, Brownstown, Taylor (part), Woodhaven, Huron, Sumpter, Romulus, Wayne, Van Buren and Belleville.
“I am so excited to announce my bid for the State Senate to continue representing Downriver and southwestern Wayne County,” Rep. Camilleri said. “As a former teacher and the son and grandson of union autoworkers, I know the stories and struggles of working families because I’ve lived them.”
“In the State Legislature, I’ve worked to create change in and for our communities. Even with the roadblocks we’ve faced, we’ve gotten things done: securing a deal to build the much-needed multimillion dollar underpass on Allen Road in Woodhaven and delivering record funding for Downriver schools. But we have more work to do — we need to support our educators and keep our kids in school, empower our workers in the industries of the future, and build the infrastructure of today and tomorrow. As your next State Senator I’ll bring bold leadership to Lansing to continue delivering results – because that’s what our families deserve.”
Rep. Camilleri is finishing his third and final term in the Michigan House of Representatives because of term limits. He was first elected to the House in 2016, winning his first general election by 323 votes and becoming the only Democrat to flip a legislative seat in Michigan that year. Since then, Camilleri has outperformed the top of the Democratic ticket in both of his re-election campaigns.
