State Representative Jaime Churches represents the 27th House District of the Michigan Legislature. Rep Churches was a teacher for over 10 years before deciding to run for office. She saw the lack of resources for schools, and wanted that standard to change for future educators. During her 2022 campaign, she won her election by 660 votes. This was the closest race in the entire state of Michigan and gave us the first Democratic Trifecta in 4 decades. Her first bill required universal background checks and required safe storage for firearms around children. In her first year in office, Rep Churches has also secured millions for her district for infrastructure repairs, reinstated workers rights across the state, tripled the working families tax credit, and repealed the pension tax on seniors.
