Greg is well prepared to meet this new challenge and his experience will ensure a smooth transition into the next Congress. I’m proud of our team and look forward to continuing to serve the people of the 12th Congressional District.”

“Every day it’s an honor to come to work on behalf of the hard-working men and women of Southeast Michigan,” said Sunstrum. “Michigan’s 12th Congressional District is my home and I’m eager to continue fighting for the issues that will make a difference in the lives of Americans.”
