Legislator to represent Michigan’s 105th House District in 2021-22 legislative term
State Rep. Ken Borton has announced his legislative office is open and ready to serve the residents of Antrim, Charlevoix, Montmorency, Oscoda and Otsego counties.
“Northern Michigan people and families are strong and independent – and I am looking forward to hearing their concerns and representing them in Lansing,” said Borton, of Gaylord. “I am getting to work right away with my legislative staff to ensure our communities and small business owners enjoy less burdensome regulation, our Constitutional rights are protected and that our state is a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
Borton was most recently the chair of the Otsego County Board of Commissioners and the previous president of the Michigan Association of Counties. Through his family business, Borton has 40 years of real estate and property management experience.
Joining Borton’s office are Legislative Director Madeline Fata and Legislative Aide and Director of Constituent Services Bryce Webster.
Fata was born and raised in the Lansing area. She graduated from Michigan State University in 2014 and began interning for state Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker shortly after. Following that internship, Fata worked as a legislative aide for Michigan Legislative Consultants before transitioning back into the Legislature as an executive assistant for state Sen. Dale Zorn and a legislative director for state Sen. Wayne Schmidt. She married her husband, Michael, in October and the two enjoy traveling throughout northern Michigan with their dog, Russell.
Webster graduated from Grand Valley State in 2018 after majoring in political science and philosophy. He has worked for former Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, Americans For Prosperity and – in the most recent Michigan House term – former state Rep. Lynn Afendoulis. Outside of politics, Webster enjoys board games, fishing, watching Detroit Lions football and spending time with family, his significant other Rebecca and their dog, Tiberius.
