63rd District candidates in crowded state House race get specific on priorities | #socialmedia | #education | #technology | #infosec

For several candidates running for state representative in Michigan’s new 63rd District, there may not be a lengthy policy wish list to tackle if they win.

But when asked, goals in shared areas — be it business, agriculture or local water resources — begin to emerge on both sides of the aisle.

Two familiar faces, Kelly Noland and Jamie Murray, are competing for the district’s Democratic nod in the Aug. 2 primary, while two sitting St. Clair County elected officials and a Macomb County Trump supporter are vying on the Republican side.

The primary winners will square off in the November general election.

The 63rd largely replaces parts of the current 32nd and 81st House districts. In St. Clair County, it encompasses Clay, China, Cottrellville, East China, and Ira townships, as well as Algonac, Marine City, and St. Clair, and also Casco Township south of Lindsay Road.
