To the Journal editor:
Thanks to the recent front page article in The Mining Journal most voters in Ishpeming Township are aware that as a result of re-districting we are no longer in the 109th State House District but have been moved to the 110th District. Ten years ago this happened to Powell Township. It is going to feel very strange for me to no longer be voting in the district I represented for three terms.
This redistricting means that during the primary and general elections we will be voting for candidates we may not be familiar with. I have known Scott Dianda for more than ten years. We met when he was a small business owner in Calumet who was also involved in local government on the Calumet Village Council. The perspective that Scott gained from these early experiences will serve us well in Lansing. I encourage my friends and neighbors in Ishpeming and Powell townships to visit his website at www.votedianda.com to learn more about Scott and his campaign. I am confident that when you get to know him you will join me in supporting Scott Dianda for State Representative.
