Troy City Councilman Ethan Baker has formally announced his campaign for State Representative in Michigan’s 41st District (Troy/Clawson).

Baker has served on Troy City Council since 2015.

“I have loved every single minute of being on council,” Baker said. “Through the highs and lows of our city government, it never has escaped me, for a moment, what a pleasure it is to serve the people of Troy. I take pride in my record of listening to constituents and working hard to balance the interests of Troy’s residents and businesses.”

Currently a Troy attorney, specializing in Elder Law, Estate Planning, and Business Law, Baker previously worked for President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan in their post-presidential office as a Special Assistant to the President, interacting daily with President and Mrs. Reagan for over four years.

“I personally learned many lessons from my former boss and our beloved president, Ronald Reagan, most notably the power of relationship-building and being a positive force in politics,” Baker shared.

Baker is an unwavering conservative who’s not afraid to make hard decisions and stand for what he believes in. On Troy City Council he has governed with these core values and will continue to in the State Legislature, not only as a strong leader, but as a representative with a proven track record of listening to, and interacting with, the residents and finding ways to come together in a positive manner.

Baker is starting his eighth year as Board President of the Hills of Charnwood Association, is a 2016 recipient of County Executive L. Brooks Patterson’s Elite 40 Under 40 Award, and is a member of the Troy Kiwanis Club.

Baker is married to Bethany, and has three wonderful children—Arden (10), Canaan (9), and Aven (5).
