Rep. Jeremy Moss is in his first term representing Michigan’s 35th House District, which includes Southfield, Lathrup Village, Beverly Hills, Bingham Farms and Franklin. He is a lifelong Southfield resident.
In the Legislature, Moss is fighting to restore the harsh cuts to local governments and school districts that have impacted the lives of working families, retirees and students.
As the Democratic vice chairman of the House Local Government Committee, Moss served as acting chairman of the committee just six months into his tenure as State Representative, marking the first time in recent years that a member from the minority party has chaired an entire legislative committee meeting with action items on the agenda.
Moss also serves as a member of the the House Commerce and Trade and House Regulatory Reform committees.
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, and graduated from the Michigan Political Leadership Program Fellowship through MSU.
