Paul Mitchell was elected to the 115th Congress to represent Michigan’s 10th District. The district includes Huron, Sanilac, Tuscola, Lapeer, St. Clair and Macomb counties. Upon his election to Congress, his new Republican colleagues selected him as the Freshman Representative to the GOP House Leadership. He serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, the Education and the Workforce Committee, and the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Paul, the oldest of seven, is the proud son of a GM autoworker, and graduated from Michigan State University. Paul and his wife Sherry live with their family on a farm in Dryden, Michigan.
Paul’s love for his home state and its citizens has led him to a life of service. His record of leadership includes organizing the fight to defeat the Proposal 1 tax increase in Michigan, which would have been the largest tax increase in Michigan in fifty years. In addition, Paul has dedicated much of his career to workforce training, serving the State of Michigan, Chrysler, and ultimately as CEO of Ross Education.
Paul is humbled by the trust of his fellow Michiganders, and is thrilled to represent them in our nation’s capital.
