State Senator Jim Runestad (right) was sworn in to office by Oakland County ­Circuit Judge Michael Warren during a ceremony January 8 at the Commerce Township Hall.  A Republican from White Lake, Runestad formerly served as a state representative and as a commissioner for Oakland County. The swearing in ­ceremony for Runestad was the second such occasion for Judge Warren, who also administered the oath of office when the GOP legislator became a state ­representative. Runestad, an alumnus of Central Michigan University, will represent the 15th District in the State Senate.
