ISHPEMING TOWNSHIP — An Upper Peninsula state representative has once again decided to run for office.
Scott Dianda made his official announcement in front of a few supporters this afternoon in Ishpeming Township. The state rep said that it’s been a pleasure to serve his constituents at the capitol since he was elected.
Dianda reflected on what it’s like to be a voice in Lansing for people of the U.P.
“As a business guy, it’s always been very interesting down there, to be able to look at how fast we could get things done in the private sector versus the State of Michigan,” said Dianda. “I always look to try and simplify things and add to bills that are being introduced to make sure that they’re common sense and they take care of U.P. residents,” he added.
Dianda also addressed the key issues he thinks will be brought up in Lansing over the next few years.
“I think at the state level what we’re going to be focusing on is making sure that we have responsible government for the people that we’re serving to make sure that we’re providing good, quality water, education and we’re taking care of people and that we’re not just coming up with crazy laws to have our name on bills,” Dianda said.
Representative Dianda has served the 110th District in Lansing since 2013.
