Squires says he will not seek state house seat.

October 12, 2015



AMBER TOWNSHIP – Dr. Lewis G. Squires announced today that he will not be running for the Republican nomination for the 101st Michigan State House of Representatives. Squires had been seriously and considering the seat after current Rep. Ray Franz, R-Onekama, is term limited at the end of 2016. Squires has publicly stated that he was considering running for the seat,  which is why he issued the statement.

Squires said today after many months of consideration he has weighed the pros and cons and has made the decision not to seek the nomination for seat.   Within the last few months he has met and spoke with many state associations as well as many Republican leaders who have tried to convince him to run for the 101st Michigan State House of Representative seat.

Squires is a chiropractor who owns Squires Family Chiropractic located in Amber Township.

Squires said he has always shown a passion to improve the health and welfare of local citizens as well as the economic situation of Mason County and that he feels at this time he could do more locally then seeking the nomination for the 101st Michigan State House of Representative seat. 

Currently two candidates, both Democrats, have announced their candidacy: Former state representative Dan Scipps of Northport and Tom Stobie of Manistee, who ran in the previous election.
