LANSING – State Rep. Sara Cambensy (D-Marquette) took the oath of office today for her first term representing the Upper Peninsula communities of the 109th House District. Rep. Cambensy won a special election to replace the late John Kivela, and will serve out the remainder of the term through 2018.

"I have been a tireless advocate for the people of my community during my service in Marquette,” said Cambensy, who previously served as a Marquette City Commissioner from 2012-2017. “Now I’m ready to take that fight to Lansing. Michigan used to be a state that invested in its people, and it’s time that it was again. Yoopers wanted a representative they knew would continue working for a quality education for their children, to see better roads and bridges across the U.P., and to strengthen our economy at home. I am grateful for this opportunity now to serve as my community’s voice in the Capitol, and will continue fighting for the things that matter most to us in the Upper Peninsula.”

Cambensy represents the 109th House District, which comprises Alger, Luce and Schoolcraft counties and most of Marquette County.
