State Rep. Jason Morgan is serving his first term representing the 23rd House District, which comprises part of Ann Arbor, the city of South Lyon, Superior Township, Salem Township and parts of Plymouth, Northville, Lyon, and Ann Arbor townships.

The son of a commercial fisherman, Rep. Morgan was raised in Pinconning. By working part-time and thanks to state and federal student aid, Rep. Morgan worked his way through college as a first-generation college student, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Northern Michigan University. He later earned a Master of Public Administration from the Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.

Rep. Morgan served for six years as a Washtenaw County commissioner and was elected as the county’s first-ever LGBTQ-identified person to serve as chair of the Board of Commissioners. He also served as a Northern Michigan University trustee, having been appointed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and is a service member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Over the last 15 years, Rep. Morgan has worked in various leadership positions in Michigan and Washington, D.C. He served as the constituent services director to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and in senior staff positions to five members of Congress, including Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, Haley Stevens and Elissa Slotkin, and Congressman John Dingell and Bart Stupak. Much of his career has focused on higher education, including working as a director of government and community relations and later teaching government at Washtenaw Community College.

Rep. Morgan’s passions are his family and serving the community, with a focus on addressing economic and social inequality, LGBTQ rights, transportation and infrastructure, access to quality public education, and protecting the health of our environment. He lives in Ann Arbor with his husband, Jon, and their cats, Doug and Joey.
