State Sen. Mark C. Jansen participated in a swearing-in ceremony Wednesday, Jan. 12, at the state capitol with Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert P. Young Jr. administering the oath of office.
“It was a joy to have my family with me today as we kick off the new senate session,” said Jansen, R-Gaines Township.
Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville greeted the new group of legislators. The Senate of the 96th Michigan Legislature is comprised of 26 Republicans and 12 Democrats. State senators are elected to serve a four-year term.
“I am honored to welcome such a distinguished new set of dedicated public servants to the Michigan senate,” said Richardville, R-Monroe. “Our state continues to face many challenges. I look forward to working together to turn Michigan around for the good of all our residents.”
