He spent two years as an Economic Development Director in Southeastern Michigan until elected to the Michigan Senate in 2006. He served two terms in the Michigan Senate, the first holding the position of President Pro Tempore, the second term as the Majority Leader of the Michigan Senate. He served in that capacity until December, 2014 when he left office (again due to term limits).

He also has a graduate degree in Management from Aquinas College (1989) and received an honorary doctorate in Education from Eastern Michigan in 2012 for his body of work in the legislature.
