Rep. Terence Mekoski, of Shelby Township, was sworn in as a Michigan state representative by House Clerk Gary Randall.

Mekoski’s partial term is set to expire at the end of the year. The seat became available when then-Rep. Doug Wozniak won a special election to become senator of Michigan’s 8th Senate District.
