Jeremy will be the only openly LGBTQ member of the Michigan State Senate
Democratic State Rep. Jeremy Moss is in his second term representing Michigan’s 35th House District in southern Oakland County. He is a lifelong Southfield resident.
In the Legislature, Moss is leading the charge to increase transparency in state government by drafting legislation that unanimously passed the Michigan House to apply the state’s open records law to the governor and legislature. He is also working to restore fairness in Michigan elections by introducing legislation to create an independent redistricting commission.
Moss was elected by his colleagues to serve as the House Democratic Whip and was appointed by the Speaker as the top Democrat on the House Committee on Regulatory Reform. He also serves as a member of the Elections and Ethics Committee, Local Government Committee, and the Joint House and Senate Committee on Administrative Rules.
Before joining the Legislature, Moss served as the youngest-ever member of the Southfield City Council and worked in public policy at the state and local levels. He is currently a board member of Congregation Beth Ahm in Oakland County, and a member of the Greater Southfield/Farmington NAACP and Martin Luther King Task Force.
Moss earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism with an additional major in political science from Michigan State University, where he graduated with high honors. He studied race relations in South Africa, where he volunteered to provide community support to children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.
