Sam Singh wins election to State Senate

November 21, 2022 - J. Reuter

Congratulations to Senator-elect Sam Singh on winning his election to the Michigan State Senate representing the new 28th Senate District for the upcoming term beginning January 1, 2023. Senate District 28 is home to MSU and many MSU faculty, staff, alumni, and current students. He has been selected to serve as the Senate’s Majority Floor Leader and is the first Indian American elected to the chamber.  

Singh earned his Bachelor’s degree in history from Michigan State University in 1994. In addition to his academic pursuits, he served as chief of staff to the student government, ASMSU, and was a resident assistant on campus. In 1993, the State News, MSU’s student newspaper, named him Spartan of the Year. 

Following his academic success at MSU, he was elected to the East Lansing City Council one year after graduation at the age of 24 and served 12 years in local government. In 2005, he was selected as East Lansing’s youngest mayor in the city’s history, at that time. He won election to the State House of Representatives in 2012 and served six years, being elected as Democratic Leader in his final term.

We look forward to Senator-elect Singh’s leadership endeavors in the State Senate and representation of the constituents in the 28th Senate District.
