About Jeremy Moss

Sen. Jeremy 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.

Jeremy served two terms in the Michigan House of Representatives before joining the Michigan Senate. As an advocate for ethics and accountability, he worked across the aisle to pass ten bills in the House that would open up government records to public scrutiny by subjecting the governor’s office and state legislature to principles of the Freedom of Information Act.

Before his election to the state House, Jeremy served as the youngest-ever member of the Southfield City Council, and worked in public policy at the state and local levels.

Jeremy 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 also is a graduate of the Michigan Political Leadership Program at MSU.

A lifelong resident of the 11th Senate District, Jeremy is currently a board member of Congregation Beth Ahm in Oakland County and an advisory board member of the Martin Luther King Task Force in Southfield.
