State Representative Patrick Green is serving a partial term and first full term in the House of Representatives. He represents the 28th District, which comprises the city of Center Line and the western portion of the city of Warren.
In his role as representative, Green will work with fellow representatives and fight for the values of the constituents he represents. Green will work to improve funding for education at all levels; to bring balance to the tax system; to bring sustainable jobs to Michigan; and to protect our environment.
As a member of the Warren City Council since 2007, Green has worked with the challenges of cities facing reduced resources. By taking a leadership role in the budget process, Green made sure Warren consistently provided strong public safety in the form of firefighters, EMTs and police officers. While on the city council, Green’s priorities included bringing significant new business investment to Warren, increasing the tax base and creating more good paying jobs.
Green is the youngest of six children. His parents, James and Mary Ellen Green, are retired teachers from Fitzgerald and Warren Consolidated Schools, and his father was a prisoner of war in World War II. His siblings have all stayed locally and in the greater Detroit area to live, work and raise their families.
