Currently, Schuette is working to protect equal treatment to Michigan public universities and pensions of state police and firefighters. He is also investigating the Flint water crisis.

Leonard, of DeWitt Township, was elected to the 93rd District in November 2012.

He was re-elected to a second term in November 2014 and a third term in November 2016. His colleagues elected to him Speaker of the House this term.

Prior to being state representative, Leonard served as an assistant attorney general and was a prosecutor in Genesee County, where he served in the Special Criminal Division.

He also is an active member of the DeWitt Lion’s Club and the St. John’s Kiwanis Club.
