State Representative Darrin Camilleri is serving his third term representing the 23rd House District, which includes the Downriver communities of Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, Huron, Trenton, Woodhaven, and Brownstown. During his time in the State legislature, Rep. Camilleri has served as the minority vice chair of the House Education Committee, emerging as a statewide voice on improving our public schools and a champion for workers' rights.

Rep. Camilleri has been an outspoken and successful advocate for addressing Downriver's infrastructure problems, securing funding for new construction of bridges to address traffic delays caused by blocked railroad crossings. With this decades-long problem having been a regular headache for Downriver drivers, Rep. Camilleri is proud to have led the successful effort to make solutions a reality.

Ensuring Downriver working families can get ahead is a top priority for Rep. Camilleri, whether that be walking with striking workers on the picket line, standing up to big corporations in Lansing, or ensuring Downriver residents have access to the state services they need. During his leadership through the COVID-19 pandemic, Rep. Camilleri helped guide millions of dollars of relief for Downriver small businesses, schools, public safety and our local communities.

Rep. Camilleri has consistently introduced legislation to keep Michigan's promises to working people and help everyday Michiganders get ahead. Notably, he has been a leader in the fight to protect pensions for police officers, firefighters, teachers and school employees. He has also worked extensively to protect our environment and highlight the state's literacy crisis and teacher shortage. Camilleri was awarded Progress Michigan's Legislator of the Year in 2017, was recognized as one of Crain's Detroit's 20 in their 20s, and was given the Michigan Association for Media in Education's 2018's Outstanding Legislator Award for his work as House Education Committee Vice Chair and working to expand access to school libraries.

Rep. Camilleri is proud of his family's uniquely American story. As the son of an immigrant from Malta and a Latina, he became Michigan's youngest Latino and first-ever Maltese-American elected to the Legislature in 2016. Coming from a long line of union auto workers, he has been steadfast in his pursuit of opportunity for all communities in Michigan.

A first-generation college graduate, Rep. Camilleri earned his bachelor's degree from Kalamazoo College. During his time there, he served as student body president and worked for Congressman John Dingell. Camilleri previously worked as a high school social studies teacher in Southwest Detroit and is a new homeowner in Trenton.
