Swearing in

State Rep. Peter Herzberg (D-Westland) stands with family as he is sworn into the Michigan House of Representatives on April 30, 2024, on the House Floor of the Capitol in Lansing.

LANSING, Mich., April 30, 2024 — State Rep. Peter Herzberg (D-Westland) was sworn in today to serve out the remaining term of the 25th House District, which comprises all of Wayne, most of Westland, and parts of Canton and Dearborn Heights. The seat has been vacant since late last year, when former state Rep. Kevin Coleman was elected mayor of Westland.

“I am honored to serve as state representative of my hometown ,” Herzberg said. “I look forward to pursuing priorities that will propel our community forward. As we prepare next year’s budget, I will work to bring home investments that will have a lasting impact for folks in my district and for Michiganders across the state.”

Herzberg grew up in Westland, near Warren and Wayne Roads, and has lived in the same neighborhood for his entire life, now with his wife and daughter. He loves his community and has served in various nonprofit organizations, such as the Westland Festival Committee and the Westland Veterans Association. His strong community-oriented spirit has led him to help raise funds for Alzheimer’s research, juvenile diabetes research and the Westland Veterans Memorial Garden and Camp Liberty.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put the people of Michigan first. This Legislature has been historically productive, but there’s more work to do to keep moving Michigan toward a better and brighter future,” Herzberg continued.
