Joe Tate Wins General Election Race For State Representative in Michigan’s 2nd House District

Detroit, MI – At the conclusion of the November 6th Michigan general election Joe Tate was declared the winner in 2nd State House District, receiving 73% of the vote over Republican John Palffy. Tate spoke to Palffy this morning to congratulate him on running a good campaign.

“I would like to acknowledge the commitment made by numerous volunteers on this campaign; their time and resources were critical to our success,” Tate said. “Almost one year ago we started on a path of reaching out to the families of Michigan’s 2nd State House District. We listened and learned about many of the obstacles that face the residents in the community. We will take those stories to Lansing to find solutions to help improve the quality of life of all residents in Michigan.”

Tate, who is an economic development professional and Marine Corps veteran, ran to continue his service to community – a value that was taught to him by his father, a Detroit Fire Fighter and his mother, a public school teacher.

“For us to improve the quality of life for our Michigan residents, we must invest in our people and places. This includes everything from our infrastructure systems that provide our drinking water to the school buildings that educate our children. I look forward to taking the value of service to Lansing. I know our challenges are many, but they are far outweighed by the opportunities that are ahead.”
