Priorities and Record

As a father of five and foster parent with his wife Kathy, Jim Runestad has always put family first. As County Commissioner, Jim worked to make a difference for families in Oakland County. As State Representative, Jim fought against corruption and for families in our community. And as State Senator, Jim Runestad will continue to be a common sense problem solver for you and me!

As your State Senator, I promise you that I will always stand up for our families, our children, our seniors, and our most vulnerable.
