Michigan State and Harvard University graduate Marc Jordan is the new chief of staff and legislative aide for state Rep. Gary Glenn, Glenn’s office announced Tuesday.
Jordan, who earned his undergraduate and law degrees in East Lansing, and his masters from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, spent 10 years on staff with former Michigan Gov. John Engler — including as the governor’s advisor on agricultural issues and strategic economic initiatives — and has worked on staff for both the state Senate and House of Representatives.

In his new role, Jordan will be working on issues involving Michigan’s energy market, given Glenn’s role as chairman of the House Energy Policy Committee.
“It’s exciting to work for a legislative leader who is respected by his colleagues and widely known for his expertise, knowledge and passion for free enterprise principles on the most complex issue lawmakers face in Lansing,” Jordan said.
Glenn said Jordan’s decades of experience is an asset to residents of the 98th House District.
“My ability to represent the people of Bay and Midland counties and to help steer Michigan to a more prosperous economy and job market will be greatly enhanced by the years of experience Marc brings to Lansing,” Glenn said.
Glenn’s staff also includes constituent services specialist Jordan Keyser, who earned a political science degree from Saginaw Valley State University and formerly served as a legislative intern for Rep. Tim Kelly.
The location of Glenn’s office has changed after being elected associate speaker of the House pro tem. His office is no longer located in the Anderson House Office Building, but is instead located in Room H-372 on the third floor of the state Capitol itself, immediately overlooking the floor of the state House of Representatives.
Constituents can access the office one of two ways: by entering the House gallery on the third floor and walking along the wall on the left hand side to the door at the end of the seating area, or by taking the elevator found at the far north end of the Capitol on the ground floor and going to the third floor and turning right upon exiting the elevator.
