Rep. Phil Cavanagh

Rep. Phil Cavanagh is running for reelection to the House in District 10 and has been a strong voice for improving education. Rep. Cavanagh has provided thoughtful and pragmatic leadership in Lansing, where he’s supported common sense legislation to require school districts to base teacher evaluations on their performance in the classroom and recognize and reward teachers who improve student achievement, regardless of their seniority.

  • Rep. Cavanagh has voted for House Bill 4627, which ends regressive seniority based layoff policies that harm effective teachers and students.
  • Rep. Cavanagh voted for House Bill 4625, which will help identify and reward high performing teachers by implementing meaningful teacher evaluations.
