In Brief: Birmingham Representative Posts Perfect Voting Record
Chuck Moss did not miss one of the State House's 619 votes in 2011, according to a nonpartisan vote-tracking website.
State Rep. Chuck Moss (R-Birmingham) can add perfect attendence to his 2011 accomplishments — or, at least, a perfect voting record.
The nonpartisan vote-tracking website michiganvotes.org — which compiles the voting histories of lawmakers in the Michigan House and Senate — noted that Moss did not miss one of the House's 619 votes in 2011.
"It's not only a great honor to represent local residents at the Capitol, it's a tremendous responsibility that I take very seriously,” Moss said in a press release. "There's a lot at stake here, and I need to be on the House floor every session to provide leadership and vote on the issues."
Moss represents Michigan’s 40th District, which includes Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Keego Harbor, Sylvan Lake and Orchard Lake Village. State representatives are elected for two-year terms and are limited to three terms.
Moss is serving his third and last term with the Michigan House of Representatives and is chair of the House Appropriations Committee. Although Moss cannot run for his seat in 2012, he told Patch in August he's considering running for a seat in the state Senate, specifically the seat currently held by Sen. John Pappageorge (R-Troy), who must give up his Senate seat in 2014 due to term limits.
