InfoRepresentative Nofs has just completed serving his third term in the Michigan House of Representatives on behalf of the citizens of the 62nd District, which includes most of Calhoun County.

During his tenure in the House, Mike served as Minority Vice Chair of the House Energy and Technology Committee. In addition, Mike was a member of the Appropriations Committee where he served on the Department of Community Health subcommittee as well as Minority Vice Chair of the State Police and Military and Veterans Affairs and Investigations subcommittees.

His ability to work across party lines has earned him the respect of his colleagues and the distinction of having over a dozen bills signed into law including the rewrite of the Michigan Telecommunications Act. Mike was also instrumental in the passage of the recent Michigan Energy Plan package of bills.

Mike Nofs has a distinguished, 30-year career in law enforcement which includes service at the city, county and state level. He retired in 2002 as Battle Creek Post Commander after serving 25 years with the Michigan State Police. This service led to his being named Chair of the House Military and Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security Committee during his first term in office – one of only three freshman to receive a committee chairmanship.

Prior to his election to the Michigan House of Representatives, Mike Nofs served for 10-years as a member of the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners, five of those as chairman. During his term of service, Nofs was instrumental in initiating several innovative programs including a service to assist victims of sexual assault and one of the first county-funded programs in the state to offer prescription drug discounts to senior citizens without prescription drug insurance coverage.

Mike Nofs holds a Bachelors degree in Human Resource Management from Spring Arbor College and is active in numerous civic and business organizations including the Battle Creek and Albion Area Chambers of Commerce, Fraternal Order of Police, Fredonia Grange, 4-H and Habitat for Humanity, among others.

Nofs has five grown children and, between legislative duties, enjoys golf and being a grandfather.
