State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township) was appointed as Democratic Whip by House Democrat leadership on Dec. 28.

Camilleri, who is entering his second term representing the 23rd District, will serve in the position for 2019-2020.

During his first term, Camilleri served as assistant Democratic leader and sat on the Education Reform and Energy Policy committees. He was also the minority vice chair for Commerce and Trade.

“I’m excited to take on this new leadership role in the State House because I can bring an even stronger voice to the table for Downriver and our issues,” Camilleri said in a statement.

“The people of Michigan made their voices heard on Election Day, and they want a government that works for them and puts their needs ahead of corporate profits. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work alongside my colleagues to make Lansing work for working families and to provide real solutions to the challenges Michiganders face every day. Together, we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and finally fix our roads and bridges, protect our water and air, and ensure Michiganders have the strong paychecks and good benefits they need to take care of themselves and their families.”

On Thursday, Camilleri announced his assistant whips. They are Reps. John Cherry (D-Flint Township); Kevin Coleman (D-Westland); Padma Kuppa (D-Troy); Mari Manoogian (D-Bloomfield Township).

“This leadership team reflects the new face and energy of the House Democrats, who remain committed to fighting for the wages and benefits of working families across the state, a world-class education for every Michigander, and the safe roads we need to drive on,” Rep. Camilleri said. “I’m looking forward to working with this team to ensure that the priorities of everyday Michiganders are the focus of the work that’s done in the House,” Camilleri said.

The 23rd House District includes the communities of Brownstown Township, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile Township, Huron Township, Trenton, and Woodhaven.

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.
