LANSING – State Representative Tim Greimel (Auburn Hills) was sworn in after winning the special election to serve out the current term as the State Representative for Michigan’s 29th District. Greimel took the oath of office during a ceremony at the State Capitol on Tuesday.

“I’m thrilled to be here and be able to bring Pontiac and Auburn Hills’ concerns front and center to Lansing,” Greimel said. “In the last year, this Republican Legislature has passed cuts to our kids in the classroom, reduced benefits for unemployed workers, taxed our seniors and generally lost sight of the middle-class. I look forward to working in partnership with everyone in our community to make sure Auburn Hills and Pontiac are well-represented in the Legislature and our community becomes an even better place to live, work, grow and do business.”

Prior to running for office, Greimel worked as an attorney in the field of labor, employment, and civil rights. He was elected to the Oakland County Commission in 2007 and served as a board member for Transform Pontiac Now, Pontiac Youth Assistance and the Pontiac Veterans Memorial Committee. He has also been involved in the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce, the Auburn Hills Optimist Club and the Oakland County Veterans Group in addition to teaching Sunday School.

Greimel encourages residents to contact him if they have questions or concerns about state government. They can call him at (517) 373-0475 or email him at
