Rep. Daire Rendon was elected to her first term as state representative in November 2016. She is replacing her husband, former Republican Rep. Bruce Rendon.
Prior to her election she was appointed by Gov. John Engler and reappointed by Gov. Jennifer Granholm to the Michigan Bureau of Consumer and Industry Services, where she served as a member of the Michigan Collection Practices Advisory Board.
Rep. Rendon started her career as a government employee at the Social Security Administration in Grand Rapids, but moved into the private sector when she bought her first business in Cadillac, Michigan, in 1988. Check Alert Systems was a licensed collection agency that recovered bad checks written to businesses and verified bad checking account data at the point of sale. When she sold that business in 2011, Rendon moved her entire business model and personnel to a company she started in 2001 and still operates today, Dragon Payment Systems (DPS). Located in Lake City, the staff at DPS provides virtual customer service to monitored security companies located in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Nashville.
