State Rep. Andrea Schroeder passed away this afternoon after a long battle with stomach cancer. Speaker of the House Jason Wentworth released the following statement after learning of her passing:
“Even in the worst days of her illness, Andrea Schroeder was a tireless and selfless friend who always put the needs of others before her own. When we were all worried about her health and her comfort, she was more concerned about helping the people she represented who had called into the office, finding out what was going on in each of our lives, sharing the latest news about her children, working with the close staff for whom she cared so much, and helping everyone around her succeed with their own personal priorities. That’s who she was as a person right from the start, and that is exactly how I will remember her.
“We are struggling with her loss today, but even more we are all feeling deeply for the close family and friends who have lost such a wonderful person. Andrea’s family has requested time and space to grieve and make their arrangements, and I ask that everyone please respect their wishes during this difficult time.”
Rep. Schroeder proudly represented the 43rd District, which included the communities of Clarkston, Clintonville, Independence Township, Lake Angelus, and Waterford Township.

Michigan residents turned to the unemployment lines seeking help after the governor’s emergency rules forced them out of work during the pandemic. People used their unemployment assistance as a lifeline to stay ahead of bills and keep food on the table for their families. Now, the state’s already defected Unemployment Insurance Agency has said it made yet another costly mistake and telling the people of Michigan it’s their problem. Residents may be forced to return the money they’ve already spent at no fault of their own.
