Thaddeus John "T. John" Lesinski, (April 28, 1925 – August 13, 1996), was politician and judge from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Biography[edit]

Lesinski was born in Detroit, Michigan and lived in Detroit and Grosse Pointe Shores. He graduated from the University of Detroit Law School in 1950 and served as warrant officer in the Maritime Service with action in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian theatres during World War II. He was a member of the law firm of Lesinski & Paruk of Detroit.

He served as a Democrat in the Michigan State House of Representatives, from Wayne County's 1st District, 1951–54, and Wayne County's 7th District, 1955-60. He was elected and served as Lieutenant Governor of Michigan from 1961 to 1964. He served as Judge in the Michigan Court of Appeals 1st District from 1965 to 1976, being elected unopposed 1972 and resigned in 1976. He was a Catholic, a member of the American Bar Association, American Judicature Society, Polish National Alliance, Knights of Columbus, and Delta Theta Phi.

Lesinski was the 51st Lieutenant Governor of Michigan serving under Governors John Swainson and George W. Romney. Although George W. Romney was a Republican, Lesinski was a Democrat, and defeated Romney's running mate, former Lieutenant Governor Clarence A. Reid, since the Governor and Lieutenant Governor were at that time elected separately in Michigan. Reid himself won election as a Republican at the same time Soapy Williams, a Democrat, was elected governor.

T. John Lesinski died in 1996 at the age of 71.
