Bezotte opens office, hires Denby as legislative director

State Rep. Bob Bezotte

State Rep. Bob Bezotte, R-Howell, has opened his legislative office and is ready to get to work.

Among the major issues Bezotte is preparing to fight for include “helping individuals and their loved ones battling mental health struggles, working on policies important to veterans, looking at education issues that will best help children excel in their studies, and taking steps to reopen Michigan as safely and efficiently as possible as we continue to battle economic hardships from COVD-19 shutdowns,” according to a release.

Bezotte, a former Livingston County Sheriff and Commissioner and Vietnam War veteran, said he also has a background and passion for public safety and will fight for legislation to help protect Michigan families and law enforcement.

Bezotte’s legislative director is a face familiar to the 47th state House District: former state Rep. Cindy Denby.

Denby’s roots in the district run deep. In addition to previously serving as the district’s  state rep, she’s most recently worked as former state Rep. Hank Vaupel’s legislative aide.

Bezotte has also hired Cara Keilen as his legislative aide. Keilen has most recently served as legislative aide to former state Rep. Kathy Crawford.

“Cindy and Cara are experienced professionals with strong work ethics,” Bezotte said. “I’m looking forward to having them on my staff and know they will do great work for our friends, families, and neighbors in Livingston County.”

“I’m honored to have been elected as your state representative and can assure you this is a role I do not take lightly,” Bezotte said. “A top priority of mine is to always have an office available for you, the people I serve. Please never hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you have about state government. My staff and I are here for you.”

Residents can contact Bezotte by calling (517) 373-8835 or by emailing
