LANSING — State Representative Patrick Green (D-Warren) took the oath of office today to begin serving a partial term in the Michigan House of Representatives. Green fills the vacancy left by former Rep. Derek Miller, who stepped down earlier this year. House of Representatives Clerk Gary Randall administered the oath.

“It’s such an honor to take the oath of office and begin serving the 28th House District as state representative,” Green said. “I’m excited to get to work for the families, students and seniors of Warren and Center Line.”

Green has served on the Warren City Council since 2007. He attended the University of Detroit and works as an insurance agent and partner in an insurance agency in Sterling Heights. He has served in leadership roles with the YMCA and has volunteered for many local nonprofits. Green and his wife, Pilar Ferry-Green, have six children, three boys and three girls, ranging in age from 13 to 23.
