LANSING, Mich., Jan. 28, 2021 — State Rep. Julie Rogers (D-Kalamazoo) was appointed this week to serve as the Assistant Democratic Floor Leader for the 2021-22 legislative term. Rogers is serving her first term representing the 60th House District, prior to which she served on the Kalamazoo County Commission for 8 years, including serving as Board Chair.
“I am honored to receive this position and appreciate the confidence Democratic Floor Leader Rabhi has placed in me,” said Rogers. “I look forward to assisting the legislative process on the House Floor and working for the people of Michigan.”
Rogers has also been appointed to the House Democratic Caucus Committee on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, which is hosting its first training for legislative members later this week.
“I am extremely grateful to be selected to serve on the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee,” said Rogers. “Fostering an inclusive environment in the Michigan House of Representatives that values all experiences and perspectives is crucial as we craft legislation for all Michiganders.”
House policy committees were also announced last week, and Rep. Rogers will be serving on the House Committees on Financial Services and the House Committee on Military and Veterans, and Homeland Security.
“As we continue to navigate the world of COVID-9, I am looking forward to serving on the Financial Services Committee in order to help ensure that the people of Michigan and our small businesses have accesses to the important resources they need to stay afloat,” said Rogers. “I am also the daughter of a veteran and I am appreciative of the opportunity to work on the committee that addresses many of the issues facing the brave men and women who have served our country.”
