ST. JOSEPH, Mich.—State Rep. Pauline Wendzel has officially filed for run for re-election as the Representative for Michigan’s 79th House District this November.

“When I ran for election in 2018, I promised that I would put Southwest Michigan’s interests first,” Wendzel said in a press release on Tuesday. “My role as your representative is just that- to represent the hardworking people of our community. After knocking on thousands of doors and attending hundreds of community events from Watervliet down to Bridgman, I know the priorities of our community and have stayed committed to making their voice heard in Lansing.”

“Michigan has shown the nation that just because we have divided government, we can still work together to improve the lives of the people we serve,” Wendzel said. “Working together, we’ve led the nation by responsibly reforming our criminal justice system; we’ve fostered an environment that allows small businesses to grow and thrive; and most importantly, we achieved what so many previous legislatures failed to do by delivering real and meaningful auto-insurance reform. I know that there is still more work to do, and I’m ready to continue improving the lives of the people I serve.”

Wendzel was first elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in November 2018.

She currently represents the 79th District, which includes parts of Berrien County.
