LANSING, Mich., Jan 17, 2023 — State Rep. Penelope Tsernoglou (D-East Lansing) joined Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson earlier today to announce election-related legislative priorities for the 2023-24 session.
“Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democracy, and I look forward to working in a collaborative manner to ensure that Michigan will serve as a model of the best-run elections in the nation,” Tsernolgou said. “As chair of the Elections Committee, I’m committed to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle and Secretary Benson to ensure every Michigander is empowered to share their voice at the ballot box; our election workers can do their jobs without fear of threat, harassment or intimidation; and our clerks have the resources they need to run secure, fair, efficient and transparent elections.”
Tsernoglou will serve as a member of Secretary Benson’s election policy working group, which comprises nonpartisan organizations dedicated to democracy, a bipartisan group of clerks from across the state, the Senate Elections committee chair state Sen. Jeremy Moss (D-Southfield), and Executive Office of the Governor representatives.
Tsernoglou is serving her first term representing the 75th House District, which sits at the intersection of Clinton, Ingham and Shiawassee Counties. In addition to serving as chair of the Elections committee, she also serves on the Judiciary and Criminal Justice committees, and Housing subcommittee of Economic Development and Small Business.
