State Rep. Pamela Hornberger today was joined by her family for the first session day of the Michigan House of Representatives in the 99th Michigan Legislature, which included taking ceremonial and official oaths, meeting Gov. Rick Snyder and selecting her House seat.
“This is exciting, like the first day of school, and it’s such a joyous moment to be able to share it with my family by my side,” said Hornberger, R-Chesterfield Township. “I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues in the House and Senate to keep Michigan on the comeback trail, and I want to hear from area residents with ideas and suggestions we can address together for our state and our hometown.”
Hornberger’s Lansing office can be contacted by addressing letters to the State Capitol, Lansing, MI 48909-7514; calling 517-373-8931; and by email, PamelaHornberger@house.mi.gov.
She is assisted by her office staff, Mel “Sonny” Koch and Phil Kraft.
Koch, a Macomb Township resident, has six years of experience as House legislative office staff. He earned a master’s degree in American history from Eastern Michigan University, a bachelor’s degree in history from Alma College and is a 2004 graduate of Chippewa Valley High School.
Kraft, a Chesterfield resident and 2004 Anchor Bay High School graduate, previously served five years as constituent services representative for Congresswoman Candice Miller and is currently on the Macomb County Board of Commissioners. He earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Saginaw Valley State University.
“The 32nd House District and I are extremely fortunate to have Sonny and Phil on our team working for us,” Hornberger said. “Their knowledge and experience of our community and the government process means we are hitting the ground running.”
