Noah Arbit, a Democratic candidate for state Representative for West Bloomfield, may or may not be facing incumbent state Rep. Ryan Berman (R-West Bloomfield, Commerce Township) in ‘22, depending on if Berman succeeds in his quest to be chosen as his party’s nominee for attorney general. What Arbit will have is some serious dough in the bank. Ahead of the October 25 campaign finance filing deadline, he announced he had raised a total of $71,277 from 358 contributors, and no dollars from any PACs. To his delight, the greatest amount of contributions came from West Bloomfield residents themselves. “Our record breaking first quarter makes clear that this district is energized and ready to send fresh, new leadership to Lansing,” Arbit said. In addition, he received endorsements from West Bloomfield officials, including Supervisor Steve Kaplan, Treasurer Teri Weingarden, and township trustees Jonathan Warshaw and Diane Rosenfeld Swimmer.
