LANSING — Last week, the Speaker of the House announced committee assignments for the 2019-20 legislative session. State Rep. John Chirkun (D-Roseville) will serve on the House committees on Military, Veterans, and Homeland Security and Communications and Technology. Chirkun will also serve as the Democratic vice chair of the Regulatory Reform Committee.

“Ensuring our families have the resources they need to take care of themselves is my top priority,” Chirkun said. “That’s why I’m looking forward to developing meaningful legislation in these committees to address those needs. I learned a great deal throughout my first two terms in the Legislature, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the many important issues facing our state today.”

Chirkun is serving his third term representing Michigan’s 22nd House District, which comprises the city of Roseville and part of the city of Warren. Before serving in the Legislature, Chirkun served as mayor of Roseville after sitting on the Roseville City Council. As a council member, he served as chairman of the Roseville Retirement Board, as chairman of the South Macomb Sanitary District and as chairman of the South Macomb Disposal Authority.
