3 candidates file for Monroe County seat

Three people have filed as candidates for the 56th Michigan House District. The most recent, Lambertville resident Tom Redmond, plans to make his formal announcement at 3 p.m. Thursday at Sidelines Sports Eatery and Pub, 8116 Secor Rd., in Lambertville.

The filing deadline is April 22. Mr. Redmond, a retired Monroe County sheriff’s deputy, part-time Dundee police officer, and unsuccessful candidate for sheriff, is the only Democrat to file so far.

Two Republicans have filed: Jason Sheppard, a county commissioner and Temperance resident, and Irma Kubiske, an Ida Township resident and small-business owner. They will face off in the Aug. 5 GOP primary.

State Rep. Dale Zorn (R., Ida), is vacating the seat to run for the state Senate seat held by the term-limited Randy Richardville (R., Monroe).
