Biographical Note

Patrick (Pat) M. Gagliardi was born in Bay City, Michigan, on December 14, 1950. He graduated from Midland High School and went on to receive his B.A. degree from Lake Superior State University in 1974.

Gagliardi was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives as a Democrat in November 1982. He represented district 107, which included most of the eastern Upper Peninsula, until 1998. These counties included Alger, Chippewa, Emmet, Luce, Mackinac, and Schoolcraft. Gagliardi was involved with a number of environmental issues throughout his time in office. He strove to save lighthouses and to preserve the underwater history of the great lakes. Gagliardi was also an advocate of libraries and museums and played a big part in the controversial closing of the mental health facilities in Newberry, Coldwater, and Muskegon, Michigan.

Gagliardi served on many House committees during his tenure. These committees included Colleges and Universities (1983-1984), Conservation and Environment (1983-1986), Economic Development and Energy (1983-1984), Senior Citizens and Retirement (1983-1986), Tourists and Recreation (1983-86), Agriculture and Forestry (1985-1986; 1991-1994), Education (1985-1986), Appropriations (1987-1988), House Oversight and Ethics (Chair for 1989-1994; Minority vice chair for 1995-1996), Joint Statutory Standing (1991-1992), Legislative Council (1989-1996), Forestry and Minerals (1991-1992), Joint Capital Restoration (1991-1996), Michigan Capital (1991-1992), Constitution and Women’s Issues (1989-1990), House Majority Floor Leader (1995-1998).
