LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The wife of Lt. Gov. Brian Calley is joining her husband in the Capitol as a state lawmaker from Ionia County.

Julie Calley, also a Republican, becomes the fourth member of her family to serve in the House. Public service is in her genes: Her mother just retired as a township trustee.

Brian Calley tells the Detroit Free Press that he doesn’t think their paths will cross much. Besides being lieutenant governor, he also presides over the state Senate and doesn’t have much contact with the House.

Brian Calley says he and his wife will disagree on some issues. He says they’ve “got plenty of experience working out conflict.”

Julie Calley says she wants to boost opportunities for workers in skilled trades.
