Oakland County political gossip

LINING THE PLATES UP

July 26, 2017

The chicken and pea circuit is ready to kick off. One of the firsts to officially hold a campaign announcement event was state Rep. Jim Tedder (R-Clarkston), who has filed to run for the 12th state Senate seat currently held by Jim Marleau (R-Lake Orion), who is term-limited. Marleau has endorsed Tedder, acting as one of the hosts, along with several township supervisors and mayors of municipalities in the north part of the district, which runs from Addison Township to Oakland Township, Orion Township, Clarkston, Pontiac, and Bloomfield Township since 2013. Current word on the street as we were going to press: Birmingham/Bloomfield Hills/Bloomfield Township state Rep. Mike McCready (R), term-limited in the state House, has also been eyeing the seat, and will likely announce this fall. Former Rep. Brad Jacobsen (R-Oxford) had been interested in the seat, but may be content right now with his political appointment to the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, a four-year term that expires June 12, 2020.
