MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – John Kivela of Marquette, a Democrat running for the 109th District State House of Representatives seat, joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to discuss his run for the post.
The seat, which represents the majority of Marquette County along with Alger, Schoolcraft and Luce Counties, is open due to the current representative, Steve Lindberg, being term limited out.
Kivela talked about the evolution of his campaign from the primary to this run to the general election in November. He also discussed what key issues are on the forefront of the minds of the people he has talked to on the campaign trail.
He also brought up the role of vocational training in the economic restart of the district and the state and how he feels there needs to be a mix of both blue collar and white collar focused training for balanced economic development.
