Stobie Runs To Challenge Franz In The 101st

Will Ray Franz’s luck run out this year? Democrats from Ludington to Northport are hoping it will as Tom Stobie launches his candidacy for the 101st State House District. Stobie wants the nomination to challenge Franz in November. In the last two elections, Democrats took about 49 percent of the vote against Franz.

Stobie just retired after 10 years as superintendent of Frankfort-Elberta Schools. He says Republicans have dismantled Michigan’s public education system. Rather than just get mad, he decided to do something about it.
