Personal life and education[edit]

Career[edit]

McCann served on the Kalamazoo, Michigan City Commission for ten years, starting in 1999. He was elected to the Michigan House in 2011.[1]

In 2013, McCann proposed the creation of an independent commission to draw legislative districts in the state, in order to help prevent gerrymandering.[2]

In 2014, McCann ran against Republican Party nominee Margaret O'Brien and Libertarian Party nominee Lorence Wenke for the 20th district seat in the Michigan Senate.[3] He lost to O'Brien after a recount widened from 59 votes to 61 votes.[4]
