Dan Lauwers is a member of the Michigan House of Representatives. He represents the Michigan 81st District, made up of the areas just south of Port Huron, Michigan along the St. Clair River, that are functional suburbs of Detroit with additional business related to the water tourism, combined with an inland area to the west of Port Huron that is largely still rural farm country with small towns that largely function as trade centers, and only very limited influx of commuters to the Metro-Detroit area.

Lauwers comes from the more rural western portion of the district, and has a bachelor's degree in agricultural economics from Michigan State University. Lauwers owns Eastern Michigan Grain. He was a legislative assistant to Bill Schuette when Schutte was in the US House of Representatives. Lauwers was first elected to the state house in 2012.[1]
