Frank Liberati was born in Detroit and raised in Allen Park Michigan where he married his wife, Nina, and raised 3 amazing sons Nick, Angelo, Antonio. He started his own small business, Liberati's Italian Deli and Bakery, in Allen Park. Operating on the belief that hard work and honesty is the key to success, Frank has cemented himself as a valued and respected member of his community.
Frank has spent most of his life working as a union member or alongside union members, with the goal of improving unjust working environments. At age 16, Frank joined the United Foods and Commercial Workers Union and worked at Farmer Jack Supermarkets throughout his time in high school and Michigan State University. Upon graduation, he spent the next 15 years working for unionized manufacturing companies selling semi-trailers. With this type of background, Liberati possesses a keen understanding of what kind of policies can help or hurt Michigan’s workers.
Frank was President of the Allen Park School Board from 2006-12. He believes all children in our state should have access to high-quality education that gives them the skills to be successful in the real world. Frank has also been an advocate for the medically marginalized, sitting on the board of directors for the Fragile X Association.
From 2014 to 2020, Frank continued showing support for his community as the State Representative for House District 13, of which he was the Minority Vice Chair of the Health Policy Committee. Frank spent this time advocating for greater opportunities in education, government transparency, legislation that would insure all Michiganders had access to proper healthcare, and protecting some of our most vulnerable, especially those who are medically marginalized. Approaching decisions in the House from a common sense and practical perspective, Representative Liberati put partisanship second to truly find the best legislative solutions that benefited all Michiganders.
Frank has now taken up the honor of running for the Michigan State Senate, in the hopes of continuing his work to support and represent the peoples of Southeast Michigan. Frank understands the struggles of the everyday individual and has the determination to see these issues through and find real solutions. He now asks for the help and support of his community to continue advocating for the constituents of SD1.
