John James endorses Reckling in race for 47th

John James is running for U.S. Senate

Republican U.S. Senate challenger John James is endorsing Meghan Reckling’s campaign to represent the residents of Michigan’s 47th state house district.

“Knowing Meghan Reckling as I do, I can attest to her honesty, integrity, and work ethic,” James said. “I am pleased and honored to endorse her for Michigan State Representative. Her understanding of the complex issues facing the hard-working families and residents of Michigan will make her an outstanding leader for Livingston County.”

Reckling had this to say about the substantial endorsement: “I am proud to have the support of my good friend John James. Michigan and the country will have some challenging days ahead. From the first time I met John, I was impressed with his passion to serve the people of Michigan. I have been an enthusiastic supporter ever since. We need people like John James in the US Senate, and I look forward to working with him as the next State Representative from Livingston County’s 47th district.

“I’m excited to get to work for the people of Livingston County. Our team is fired up and the Aug. 4 primary is just weeks away. John’s endorsement is an honor for all of us.”

There are four candidates in the Aug. 4, 2020, Republican primary: Reckling; Bob Bezotte, a current county commissioner and former sheriff; Yvonne Black of Marion Township; and Zachary Dyba, the assistant to the township manager in Brighton Township. The winner will face Democrat Adam Smiddy, former director of Livingston County Veterans Services, in the fall.

The 47th District includes the City of Howell; the Village of Fowlerville; part of the City of Fenton; and the townships of Conway, Cohoctah, Deerfield, Hartland, Handy, Iosco, Unadilla, Oceola, Marion and Tyrone. The seat is currently held by term-limited Republican state Rep. Hank Vaupel of Fowlerville.
