Flint Twp Supervisor Announces Run for 49th District State House Seat

courtesy Flint Township

Flint Township Supervisor Karyn Miller announced her campaign to run for the vacant 49th District state House seat on Thursday.

According to MLive, Miller joined the race late after waiting to see if any other candidates came forward that had the proper qualifications and experience to represent the district. Miller is serving her second term as township supervisor.

In a statement, Miller said “the economy is on the upswing in many parts of our state and the communities in the district need appropriate representation to insure that we share in that rebound.”

The House seat became vacant after former state Rep. Jim Ananich was elected to the 27th District Senate seat earlier this month.

Others running for the seat include Phil Phelps, former special advisor for House Democratic Leader Richard Hammel and former chief of staff for incoming State Rep. Pam Faris. He began campaigning for the seat in April. Trevor Rodgers, a 24-year-old pharmacy tech from Flint Township has also announced a run for the seat. A candidate has also dropped out of the running. Kyle McCree, manager of Community Outreach for the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce, announced a run earlier this month before sending a notice withdrawing last week.

Governor Snyder called a special election to fill the seat for November 5th. A primary will be held on August 6th if necessary.
