Southfield Councilman Jeremy Moss announced more municipal and organizational support for his bid for State Representative from Michigan’s 35th House District.
The majority of councilmembers representing Beverly Hills Village endorsed Moss, including Council President Tim Mercer, Council President Pro Tem Walter Briggs and Councilmembers Greg Burry and Brian LaFerriere.
“Jeremy Moss understands the local needs from state government and is by far the best choice to represent Beverly Hills and the 35th District at our State Capitol,” Mercer said. “My colleagues and I have seen how engaged Jeremy is on the issues that mutually affect both Beverly Hills and Southfield and we've worked with him directly to improve the roads our communities share. I’m confident Jeremy will be an effective legislator to fight for state support to improve local infrastructure.”
Beverly Hills is the second largest municipality in the 35th District behind Southfield. The other communities in the district include Lathrup Village, Bingham Farms and Franklin.
Organizations recently endorsing Moss include the Associated Food and Petroleum Dealers (AFPD), the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights (MRCC) and the Michigan Democratic Party Youth Caucus.
“As a City Councilman in one of Michigan's major business addresses, Jeremy Moss has the proven skills to foster a competitive economic environment so that retailers in our industry can thrive. He's the exact type of leader we need fighting for us in Lansing,” AFPD President Auday Arabo said.
Moss is also earning support from organized labor as the overwhelming choice to represent working men and women in Michigan.
“Jeremy Moss will be a strong voice in our state legislature for middle class families,” said Mike Jackson, MRCC Executive Secretary-Treasurer. “Oakland County families will have a champion in Jeremy Moss who'll fight for good wages and safe workplaces. Jeremy’s the kind of leader Oakland County needs so all families get a fair shake.”
Moss will be a candidate in the Democratic primary election on Aug. 5.
“Jeremy is the strongest Democrat in this race to fight for our shared values in Lansing. As the youngest elected official in Southfield's history, he's been a powerful voice for young people across Michigan and we know he'll continue that effective service as a state legislator,” the Michigan Democratic Party Youth Caucus said in a statement.
