Rep. Gary Glenn lives in Larkin Township and was first elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in November 2014. He represents the 98th District, which includes the cities of Auburn, Pinconning, Linwood, and the townships of Beaver, Fraser, Garfield, Gibson, Mount Forest, Pinconning, and Williams in Bay County. In Midland County, the district includes the city of Midland, the village of Sanford, and the townships of Midland, Homer, Jerome, Larkin, Lee, and Lincoln.

Gary also represents the state of Michigan on the National Conference of State Legislatures 2015-2016 Natural Resources and Infrastructure Committee to learn of ongoing energy initiatives, opportunities, and challenges across the country.
After his first year in office, Gary was named 2015 "Freshman Legislator of the Year" by the editor and reporters of the Michigan Information and Research Service (MIRS), the state Capitol's oldest daily news service.
