State Rep. Jim Lilly was joined on the House floor by his wife Sarah and his parents, Paul and Julie, for his ceremonial oath of office today.
Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen Markman administered the oath to Rep. Lilly during the ceremony at the state Capitol.
This is subsequent to the opening of Rep. Lilly’s office last week.
“My office has a sole purpose – to serve as a mechanism for my constituents’ voices in Lansing,” said Rep. Lilly, R-Park Township. “I want to make certain I represent the 89th District to the best of my ability, whether that be on the House floor or in district. I believe this begins at the core of our community.”
Residents of the 89th District may contact Rep. Lilly at his Lansing-based office by telephone at (517) 373-0838; e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to N-1193 House Office Building, P.O. Box 30014, Lansing, MI 48909-7514. Rep. Lilly encourages everyone to speak with legislative aide Craig Petersen or legislative director Courtney Panter when contacting the office.
Rep. Lilly will be holding his first in-district office hours later this month. All residents of the 89th District are encouraged to meet Rep. Lilly and ask questions or discuss their concerns.
“I look forward to meeting with my constituents and showing I am committed to making their voices heard in Lansing,” said Rep. Lilly.
