Rep. Cynthia Neeley is First Lady of Flint and was elected to the House in a special election in March 2020 to fill a seat vacated by her husband, Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley. She has no previous personal political experience.

She earned her right to a full first term under Michigan's term limit constitutional amendment in 2020 by securing 67% of the vote in a four-way primary.  In the general election she defeated her GOP opponent James MIRAGLIA, 86.7% to 13.2%.


Neeley is the owner of the Make Me Over salon since 2015.


She attended Mott Community College and graduated high school from Star City High School in Arkansas.


A Flint resident since 1987, Neeley has sat on several community boards, but has spent most of her time recently growing her small business. She and her husband have two children.
