Democratic candidates state views as Aug. 3 Primary Election approaches

HOUGHTON -- Local voters can read statements from the Democratic candidates running for State Representative, 110th District, (the position now held by Mike Lahti, who is running for State Senator, 38th District) on Lift Bridges and Mine Shafts, a progressive blog hosted by the Houghton County Democratic Party.

The blog also includes statements by Houghton County Prosecutor Michael Makinen and Pamela Dobbs, Houghton attorney, who opposes Makinen in this Democratic Primary. Makinen is running for this office after being appointed to it by by Judge Charles Goodman in March, 2009. State law requires that Makinen run for election to the position in the first general election following his appointment. No Republicans are running for this position.*
