Marquette Area Public School board president Tony Retaskie is also the head of the U.P. Construction Council.
And in that capacity, he was on hand at the Workers United Rally that took place tonight.
He took to the podium to address the crowd, and at the end of his remarks, he said he intends to run as a Democrat for the state House next year.
Marquette Democrat Steve Lindberg is in his third term in the 109th District State Representative seat.
That means he’ll be term–limited out of the seat at the end of next year.
