Senator John Bizon - In November 2018, residents of Michigan’s 19th Senate District elected Sen. Dr. John Bizon, R-Battle Creek, to the state Senate, representing Barry, Calhoun and Ionia counties. John chairs the Families, Seniors, and Veterans Committee. Prior to joining the Senate, Bizon served four years in the Michigan House of Representatives, representing the 62nd District. Dr. Bizon is an otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat doctor) in Battle Creek who’s been in medical practice for more than 40 years. He is a military veteran who served in the U.S. Air Force, eventually obtaining the rank of lieutenant colonel.

Senator Mallory McMorrow - Sen. Mallory McMorrow is serving her first term in the Michigan Senate. McMorrow gained more than a decade of experience in product design, media and advertising through her work with Mazda, Mattel, Gawker Media, Hearst and other global brands. She brings a fresh, creative and collaborative approach to addressing and solving some of our state’s most complex issues. As a state senator, McMorrow is focused on increasing our state’s competitiveness by supporting what makes Michigan unique – our people, unparalleled history of manufacturing and innovation, and our Great Lakes. She will work to diversify our economy by creating more opportunities for small businesses, provide our kids with a world-class education, fight for access to health care and clean water for all Michiganders, and ensure we fix our roads.

The 61st encompasses the city of Portage as well as the townships of Oshtemo, Prairie Ronde, Schoolcraft and Texas. Brandt is a former Kalamazoo County Commissioner, having served in this position for two terms before his election to the House of Representatives.  He is passionate about community engagement, economic development, and ensuring that kids have the tools that they need to succeed professionally later in life. Brandt has dedicated himself to local organizations that focus on youth empowerment, financial education and developing community leaders.  He has served on the boards of Junior Achievement of Southwest Michigan, a nonprofit organization that gives K-12 students skills for career readiness and financial literacy, as well as Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Greater Kalamazoo. Brandt strongly believes that educational enrichment for kids is a fundamental component of community involvement, and that engagement, both inside and outside of the classroom, are the cornerstones for students’ success.
