FRANKFORT — Tom Stobie announced today that he is ending his candidacy to become the Democratic candidate for the 101st District in the Michigan House of Representatives. Stobie, the former superintendent of the Frankfort-Elberta Area Schools, previously ran for the seat in 2014 and narrowly lost.

“While I am disappointed that my campaign is ending today, I am confident that the families of the 101st House District have a friend in former representative Dan Scripps, who I am supporting in his election bid,” Stobie said. “Families in Northwest Michigan deserve a representative who will take their voice to Lansing and make their priorities his own at the Capitol, and I am confident that Scripps will do that.”

Scripps, a resident of Northport, is also running as a Democrat. Mason County Commission Chairman Curt VanderWall of Pere Marquette Township is running as a Republican as is Mark Walters from Leelanau County.
