State Rep. Hank Vaupel files to maintain his position to continue representing the people of Livingston County

 

Incumbent lawmaker seeks final term representing 47th House district

State Rep. Hank Vaupel, R-Fowlerville, has filed to maintain his position representing the people of Livingston County.

The second-term lawmaker currently serves as chairman of the House Health Policy Committee where he has advanced legislation to combat the state’s rising opioid crisis, improve mental health care, and increase access to resources for parents of children with spina Bifida, among many other efforts.

In addition to his work on health policy matters, the former Handy Township supervisor has supported recent House measures to decrease taxes, increase road funding appropriations, eliminate driver responsibility fees, reform the state’s auto insurance system, give more control to local governments and stand up for his fellow veterans.

“I’m proud of what’s been accomplished throughout my first two terms in office,” Vaupel said. “There’s a lot more to be done and I intend to continue working my absolute hardest to represent the interests of my friends and neighbors in Livingston County.”

Vaupel was a veterinarian for over 40 years and has been an active member of the Livingston County community, formerly holding such positions as Secretary for the Village of Fowlerville DDA, Board Member of the Fowlerville Area Fire Authority, service and Church Council President at St. John’s Lutheran Church.

During his time as state representative, Vaupel has invited community members to join him for local office hours three times a month every month, without failure.

“The most important thing I can do is listen to the people who elected me to stand up for their interests – I will certainly continue that practice if entrusted with a third term,” the representative said.
