Gary Walker Running for New Office

The longest–serving elected prosecutor in Michigan’s history wants to return to politics.

But he’s trying to win a different office this time.

Gary Walker, Marquette County’s longtime Prosecuting Attorney, retired in December.

He’s decided to run for Chocolay Township Supervisor.

Walker says he still has a strong desire to serve the public, even after nearly 38 years in office.

And he says the supervisor position has some similarities to the civil counsel duties he used to carry out for the country while he was prosecutor.

Greg Seppanen is the current supervisor.

He’s stepping down so that he can run for the Marquette County board.

Walker says he has his eye on upcoming township issues, such as a millage ballot question where the money would be used to build a new fire hall.

Walker is running for the supervisor position as a Democrat.
