First-term state Rep. Julie Plawecki of Dearborn Heights has died. She was 54.

   State Sen. David Knezek, a fellow Democrat from Dearborn Heights, announced Plawecki's death late Saturday night on Facebook. House Minority Leader Tim Greimel released a statement Sunday saying the caucus was deeply saddened by her death. The cause of death was not immediately announced.

   Before becoming a state representative, Plawecki was a medical technologist and a teacher.

   She is survived by her husband.
