Angela Rogensues was born and raised in Macomb County and is currently serving her first term on the Warren City Council. On the Council, Angela introduced the bill to create the Veterans Affairs Commission, connecting veterans with the care and services they need. She also voted to overturn the previous council’s decision to provide lifetime health insurance for anyone who ever served on the City Council, calling it “political corruption at its worst.”

Angela believes in giving back to her community. She has been a tireless advocate for working and low-income families, animal welfare, civic engagement, and arts and culture.

 

Angela is currently the President of Ignition Media Group, a Detroit-based full-service brand and marketing agency.

Angela is an active member on many City of Warren commissions and committees, including the Animal Welfare and Historical Commissions, Housing Commission, Freedom of Information Appeals Committee, and the Environmental Action Committee. She also serves as a trustee of the General Employee Retirements System, which oversees nearly $200 million in pension and health trust funds.
