Vicki Barnett (b. July 8, 1954) is a Democratic member of the Michigan House of Representatives, representing District 37 since January 1, 2009.

She was born to a Jewish family in Detroit, Michigan. She received a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 1983, and later received her Master's Degree in Business Administration in 1991, also from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. She has worked as an investment consultant at LPL Financial in Farmington Hills since 1999, and is a licensed accident, life, and health insurance agent. Barnett married her husband, attorney Mark Steckloff, in 1982, and together they have two children, Samantha and Jordan.

Issues

Campaign themes

Barnett's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Excerpt:"Revitalizing our Economy by attracting new businesses in emerging industries to Michigan"
  • Excerpt:"Ensuring all Michigan Students have access to a world class education"
  • Excerpt:"Ensuring local communities ability to provide essential services, such as police and fire protection"

Previous offices held

Barnett was elected as a Democrat the Farminton Hills City Council in 1995. She served in this position until 2003, when she was elected mayor. She served as the cities mayor until 2007. In 2008, she announced her intention to run for the 37th State House seat, which was left open by the retirement of Democrat Aldo Vagnozzi, who could not run for re-election due to term limits. She was unopposed in the Democratic primary, but faced Republican Paul Welday in the General Election. Welday was the chief of staff to former Republican Congressman Joe Knollenberg, and the election was generally thought to be competitive. However, Barnett's popularity as mayor, as well as the coattails of then-candidate Barack Obama led Barnett to an easy 60%-40% victory over Welday.
