RELEASE|December 9, 2020

Rep. Jim Lower will become part of the Michigan House leadership staff after his tenure as a state Representative ends.

Lower will be a strategic advisor for Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth during the upcoming 2021-22 House of Representatives session. He will have a key role in advancing strategies to help Michigan become an even better place to live and work.

“I look forward to this new opportunity to help strengthen Michigan communities and improve the economic climate for job providers, workers and their families,” Lower said. “The work to find solutions to the challenges faced by our state will continue, and I’m excited for this new chapter.”

Lower, of Greenville, is currently the state Representative for Michigan’s 70th House District and chair of the House Local Government & Municipal Finance Committee. He has been a leader on many important reforms over his past four years in office – including efforts to address unfunded liabilities for local governments and improvements to local property tax assessment systems. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Lower has led efforts to provide property tax relief to families and small businesses affected by the economic shutdown.

Prior to serving in the Legislature, Lower served as a legislative director in both the House and Senate. He also served in municipal management and as a locally elected official. Lower also has helped run several small businesses and managed and assisted on numerous congressional, state legislative, and local campaigns over the past decade.
