About Jennifer


My name is Jennifer Conlin, and I am your State Representative in Michigan’s newly drawn House District 48.


As a wife, mother, daughter, caregiver, and native of Washtenaw County, and someone whose relatives have served in city, county, and state governments, and to this day continue to serve on the judicial bench, I am honored to join that legacy and give back to a community that has been so important to me.


During my decades-long career as a journalist, I had the opportunity to meet people all over the world and share their stories. For twelve years leading up to my election in 2022, I covered the state of Michigan, writing about small businesses, tourism, healthcare, arts and culture, and economic development. I believe that my profession uniquely prepared me to be a state legislator and, indeed, it proved an invaluable asset during my first session in Lansing — one that resulted in historic achievements by the new Democratic legislative majority.


But our job is not done: In the years ahead, I will continue to work tirelessly to help make our district and state a more equitable, thriving place. Together, I know we can find solutions that will create good-paying jobs, improve education, protect our environment, expand access to high-quality, affordable healthcare, and safeguard the rights of all Michiganders.


Thank you for your continued support,
