Sam Singh
House Democratic Floor Leader
District 69

State Representative Sam Singh is serving his second term representing Michigan’s 69th House District, which includes East Lansing, Haslett, Okemos, Williamstown Township, and Locke Township. He is also serving his first term as the Democratic Floor Leader. Rep. Singh serves on the following House committees – Appropriations and Government Operations.
Singh’s story is one of civic engagement. Singh’s parents immigrated to Michigan from India in the 1960s for a better life and an opportunity for the American Dream. From an early age, Singh’s parents taught him the value of giving back to the country that has given them so much. Singh took those lessons to heart, knowing how hard his parents worked to provide a good life for him and his brother.

Before serving in the Legislature, Singh was elected to the East Lansing City Council at age 24. During his 10 years on council and one term as mayor, Singh worked to strengthen ties with MSU, promote regional cooperation and support economic development. Singh also served as the president and CEO of the Michigan Nonprofit Association and, before being elected, worked on the New Economy Initiative, which supports moving Michigan to a knowledge-based economy with education and job training to ensure worker competitiveness, and helping new businesses and entrepreneurs create thousands of jobs. Singh is the first Indian-American state representative in Michigan. Singh and his wife, Kerry, live in East Lansing.
