Victory named Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee chairman

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Roger Victory on Wednesday announced he will chair the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee and serve as assistant majority whip for the 101st Legislature.

“I want to thank Senate Majority Leader Shirkey for entrusting me with leading this important committee, which was led for 16 years by the late Sen. William Van Regenmorter,” said Victory, R-Hudsonville. “I will bring back Ottawa County values and compassion to the criminal justice issues facing our state. As Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee chairman, I am dedicated to protecting hardworking families and supporting officers keeping us safe while also reducing costs to taxpayers and helping end the cycle of crime.”

Victory was appointed as chairman to replace former Sen. Pete Lucido, who resigned from the Senate after being elected Macomb County prosecutor in November.

Victory was also elected by his Senate Republican colleagues as assistant majority whip.

“In my leadership role, I will remain focused on getting our great state back to work and improving the lives of the Michigan people,” Victory said. “While these new roles are exciting, my top priority will continue to be doing my best to represent the good folks of Ottawa County in the state Senate.”
