State Rep. Bill LaVoy Takes Oath of Office at State Capitol

House District 17 representative sworn in as 98th Legislature begins

LANSING — State Representative Bill LaVoy (D-Monroe) was sworn into office on Wednesday at the state Capitol with other members of the 98th Michigan Legislature. The representative is in his second term representing the 17th House District, which comprises Monroe city, Ash Township, Berlin Township, Exeter Township, Frenchtown Township, London Township and part of Monroe Township in Monroe County; and Flat Rock, Rockwood and Sumpter Township in Wayne County.

“I’m excited to be back in Lansing to continue working for the men and women of Monroe and Wayne counties,” LaVoy said. “I’m proud of the work I’ve done so far, but there’s more to do on behalf of the middle-class families, students and seniors of my district.”

Before serving in the Legislature, Bill served 14 years as the executive director of Monroe Public Access Cable Television (MPACT). His experience includes serving on the City of Monroe Airport Board and the Monroe Cable Television Committee. Joining LaVoy for the ceremony were his wife, Monroe Clerk/Treasurer Michelle LaVoy; his father, retired District Judge William LaVoy; and his daughter Carolyn LaVoy, who took part in the seat selection ceremony.

LaVoy quipped, “What an honor it is to see the third generation of LaVoys taking part in public service.”
