Bio

Steven Bieda, MPA, JD, LLM tax law, an attorney from Warren, Michigan, is the Chairman of the Michigan Tax Tribunal. Prior to being appointed a judge on the Tribunal, he was State Senator for the 9th District, serving from 2011-2019. He is former member of the Michigan House of Representatives (D-25 District) where he served from 2003 to 2009. Active in a number of historical organizations, Bieda headed up the Elijah Myers Memorial Project, an organization dedicated to raising funds for a permanent memorial marker illustrating the career of Elijah Myers. Bieda's profile picture shows him with one of two plaques, one of which was installed in the Michigan Capitol, the other at the Myers gravesite. Previously, Bieda successfully spearheaded a campaign to erect a special monument at the gravesite of Felix Schlag, designer of the Jefferson Nickel, which Bieda designed and had erected in 2006.

Among his other contributions, Bieda was the fundraiser for the Michigan Labor Legacy Project, raising over $1.5 million dollars for the erection of a monument to the labor movement in Hart Plaza on the Detroit Riverfront, and initiated and led a successful effort to replace two historic U.S. Civil War cannon that had previously stood in front of the Capitol but had been melted during a WWII metal drive. Bieda also holds the distinction of designing one United States coin, the 1992 Olympic Half Dollar (reverse side) and contributed to the design of the Michigan State Quarter issued in 2004.
