State Rep. Steve Carra, of Three Rivers, was sworn in today for his first term as a Michigan state representative by House Clerk Gary Randall. The 101st Michigan Legislature today began session following the swearing-in ceremony.
“Throughout the course of our nation’s history, power has continued to transfer to fewer and fewer hands. In order to preserve the remaining values and ideals our nation was founded upon, it’s incumbent on us to return the blessings of liberty back to the people,” Carra said. “With this responsibility, I take an oath to uphold and defend the United States and Michigan constitutions and to represent the people of the 59th District and our Southwest Michigan values to the best of my ability.”
Located in Southwest Michigan, the 59th District encompasses the entirety of St. Joseph County and most of Cass County, including the city of Dowagiac and the townships of Calvin, Jefferson, LaGrange, Marcellus, Mason, Newberg, Penn, Pokagon, Porter, Volinia and Wayne.

Today marks the 48th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which means now is a crucial time to consider ways Michigan can get on board with overturning the outdated ruling – despite having an openly pro-choice governor, stated Rep. Steve Carra.
