A state Representative could be headed to the White House. 


President Donald Trump intends to nominate one of Michigan’s own for a spot in the US Department of Education.  Republican Representative Tim Kelly would be Assistant Secretary for Career, Technical, and Adult Education.  That’s if he’s confirmed by the US Senate

In a tweet, Kelly said he’s honored and excited to join the administration.  The nomination has been in the works for a few months.  

Kelly told the Speaker of the House in May that he was in line for a federal position.
