Mike McCready Named a 'Legislator to Watch' in 2013
'Detroiter Magazine' said the Bloomfield Hills resident has what it takes to foster economic growth across the region.
Rep. Mike McCready, Birmingham's newest representative in Lansing, has been named as one of six regional "Legislators to Watch" in 2013 by Detroiter Magazine, a publication operated by the Detroit Regional Chamber.
McCready (R-Bloomfield Hills) was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in November after beating out a crowded field in the GOP primary in August. A former Bloomfield Hills city commissioner, McCready takes the spot vacated by long-time representative and Birmingham resident, Chuck Moss.
McCready represents the 40th district in the House — a "key seat" in the region, the article reads — which includes Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township and parts of West Bloomfield.
According to the article, the former small business owner has what it takes to foster economic growth across Metro Detroit.
"A successful small business owner, McCready brings a no-nonsense approach to Lansing focused on creating jobs in Michigan and ensuring taxpayers get measurable results from their elected officials," the article stats.
"Serving a key seat regionally, the Chamber looks forward to beginning a great working relationship with this lifelong Oakland County resident," it adds.
McCready is the principal owner of McCready & Associates, a Birmingham-based firm that distributes office furniture, and was elected to the Bloomfield Hills City Commission in 2007.
Other Michigan legislators that made Detroiter Magazine's list include:
- Sen. Mike Kowall (R-15th District)
- Rep. Tim Greimel (D-Pontiac)
- Sen. Bert Johnson (D-Detroit)
- Rep. Gretchen Driskell (D-Saline)
- Rep. Wayne Schmidt (R-Traverse City)
