Aaron Miller will potentially be the youngest member of Michigan’s House of Representatives, as the Sherman Township Republican captured the 59th District seat in Tuesday’s general election.
Miller, 27, was elected to a two-year term after beating Democrat Mike Moroz of Dowagiac. Earning more than 65 percent of the votes in St. Joseph County, Miller held a 2-to-1 margin over Moroz districtwide.
Miller defeated three opponents in the primary to earn his way to Tuesday’s vote.
Incumbent Matt Lori is term limited after a six-year run.
A high school algebra teacher, Miller said he will be resigning from the position Dec. 19 and prepare for his new job in Lansing.
The job pays nearly $72,000 annually.
