Harris Announces Candidacy

Republican Mike Harris Announces Candidacy
For Michigan House of Representatives, 43rd District

Conservative Republican, Michigan native, retired law enforcement sergeant, and local business owner pledges to work diligently to deliver results for district families, communities, and the local economy.

Clarkston, MI- Mike Harris announced his candidacy for the vacant 43rd District seat in the Michigan House of Representatives. Harris is a Michigan native, conservative Republican, and local business owner. After a distinguished 25-year career with the Waterford Township Police Department, Harris retired as a sergeant in March of 2021.

“I’m passionate about making Michigan a safer place to raise your family,” states Harris. “As a former, decorated police officer in our community, I’ve spent decades of my life serving the people and protecting the most vulnerable. Now, I want to go to Lansing and protect you and your families, keep our laws against criminals strong, work hard to reduce big government, continue to uphold my oath to support the Constitution, and support you and your family’s right to pursue the American dream.”

“Michigan has suffered through an unprecedented two years. Government has used the pandemic to treat small business owners as criminals—while treating criminals as misunderstood children. Voter security has been compromised with the watering down of ID requirements, and the state’s justice system is more concerned with radical environmentalism than criminals,” Harris continued. “I will be a voice to return to sanity and common sense, and return government to its legitimate purposes.

Early endorsements secured by Harris include, former State Representatives in the 43rd District, Jim Tedder and Gail Haines, the Michigan Association of Police (MAP), the Michigan Association of Fire Fighters, the Michigan Association of Public Employees, Waterford Township Supervisor Gary Wall, Waterford Township Chief of Police (Ret.) John B. Dean, Waterford Township Fire Chief (Ret.) Dennis Storrs and Chief (Ret.) John Lyman.

Mike Harris and his wife reside in Clarkston and have 6 children together. His oldest daughter proudly served in the US Air Force. Harris is the former union president for both the Waterford Township Police Officer’s Association and the Association of Waterford Police Supervisors, former chairperson for the Waterford Coalition for Youth, former Vice-President of the Michigan Association of Police, and current member of the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, Fraternal Order of Police, Sons of the American Legion, and the Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners.
