O’Malley, Wiejaczka win 101st representative nominations.
Republican Jack O’Malley of Lake Ann and Democrat Kathy Wiejaczka of Empire will be the candidates for the 101st Michigan House Representatives seat in the November General Election.
O’Malley defeated Carolyn Cater of Ludington by a landslide in Tuesday’s primary election for the nomination of the Michigan 101st House of Representatives seat, 12,396 to 2,212. Wiejacka defeated Ed Hoogterp of Beulah 10,172 to 1,225.
“I believe it is an amazing thing when someone casts a vote saying that you were the person to do the job. “O’Malley said. “That means a lot to me and I don’t take it lightly. I worked hard during the primary to get those votes and I will continue to work hard between now and November. This will be a wider audience as opposed to the primary. I believe I can show all the people of the 101st that I’m their candidate. that I will listen to everyone and always vote my conscience.
“So my next step? To continue working hard, to continue meeting the people of the 101st. And spreading my message of commonsense solutions to our every day problems and working together to get things done.”
MCP sent an email to Wiejacka for comment this morning but has not received a response.
The 101st district is currently represented by Curt VanderWall of Ludington, who won the Republican nomination for the 35th State Senate District Tuesday. The 101st District includes Mason, Manistee, Benzie, and Leelanau counties.
