Joey Andrews IV
Joey is running for Michigan's newly drawn 38th House District located in Berrien, Allegan, and Van Buren counties. Joey was born in St. Joseph, Michigan, in 1988. He was raised in the district where he attended elementary school in Niles and Middle and High School at Lake Michigan Catholic Schools in St. Joseph before heading off to college at Carson-Newman University in Tennessee. He earned his bachelor’s degree in History and Music and went to Law School at Wayne State University, graduating in 2013 with his J.D. and passing the Michigan Bar Exam a year later in 2014.
Joey’s roots in Southwest Michigan go back over 150 years, with his family members arriving in each wave of immigration to Southwest Michigan. His great grandfather was a UAW member for Studebaker. His grandfather was a union carpenter who immigrated to America after World War 2 from Germany and built a life for his family in Decatur, Michigan.
