Meghan Reckling, current chair of the Livingston County Republican Party who is running in the GOP primary for Michigan’s 47th House district, has received the endorsement of the Great Lakes Education Project, a non-profit advocacy organization that supports choice in public education for Michigan students.
“I couldn’t be more pleased to receive this prestigious endorsement,” Reckling said. “As a strong supporter of meaningful school choice, I support a parent’s right to choose the educational model that best meets the needs of their children, whether through traditional public schools, public charter schools, private schools, virtual schools, or homeschooling.”
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.
