About Rep. Tim Greimel
House Democratic Leader Tim Greimel is serving his first full term in the House of Representatives and first as leader of the Democratic Caucus. He represents the 29th District, which includes the cities of Auburn Hills, Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake Village, Pontiac and Sylvan Lake.
In his role as leader of the caucus, Greimel will direct his fellow Democrats as they fight to restore funding for education at the K-12 level and beyond; restore tax deductions and credits middle-class families rely on, after they were cut to pay for a business tax break; bring new and better jobs to Michigan, especially by working with small businesses; and replace environmental protections stripped for the benefit of corporate special interests.
As a member of the Oakland County Commission beginning in 2007, Greimel has navigated the challenges of cities dealing with fewer resources and fought to provide better public safety for our communities in the form of firefighters, EMTs and police officers. While on the commission, Greimel also advanced a pro-business agenda to lure companies to Oakland County and create jobs.
Greimel – a former school board member for seven years and former school board president – understands that the best investment Michigan can make to ensure its economic turnaround is to prepare our children for the challenges of finding good-paying jobs in a globally competitive marketplace. This will only come by giving our students every available tool to succeed in the classroom.
Before joining the Legislature, Tim worked as an attorney in the field of labor, employment, and civil rights to make sure every worker has the right to find and keep a good job and to protect our hard-working citizens from unfair discrimination by their employers.
He has served as a board member for Transform Pontiac Now, Pontiac Youth Assistance and the Pontiac Veterans Memorial Committee. He has also been involved in the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce, the Auburn Hills Optimist Club and the Oakland County Veterans Group in addition to teaching Sunday School.
Greimel received a bachelor’s degree in economics and political science, a master’s in public policy and a law degree from the University of Michigan.
