Boston, MA – Today, Governor Mitt Romney announced that Michigan State Representative Fulton Sheen will serve as Chairman of the Romney for President "Council on Families" for Michigan. Representative Sheen will lead efforts to organize supporters who share Governor Romney's pro-life, pro-family conservative vision.

"Representative Sheen has an impeccable record of service with regard to advancing the pro-family cause in Michigan. He has already been enormously helpful to me in raising issues of significance for Michigan families," said Governor Romney. "I am pleased to have him play such a critical role in my effort."
