“As a mom of two, I share the same concerns of other parents in our community. It is important that we do more to create jobs in Michigan, and implement common sense solutions to Michigan problems,” O’Brien states. “Michigan is making a comeback. We balanced the State budget, on time without gimmicks. Housing prices are rebounding, population is growing again, and we can’t go back to the old days of taxing and spending.”
O’Brien currently represents the 61st House District, which includes the City of Portage, Oshtemo Township, Texas Township, Prairie Ronde Township, Schoolcraft Township and the Villages of Schoolcraft and Vicksburg. The 20th Senate Seat will be open since Senator Tonya Schuitmaker recently announced she would be seeking re-election in the 26th Senate district as a result of redistricting.
Margaret is serving her second term in the Michigan House of Representatives, she was chosen to be Associate Speaker Pro Tem both terms. Her focus has been on tax reform, common sense spending, and creating an improved climate for Michigan job creation. Margaret is married to Nick, a CPA with and together they have two children.
