When Scott VanSingel who served the area in Lansing as State Representative since 2016 was no longer eligible due to term limits it meant the newly drawn 101st seat was up for grabs with no incumbent. Four competed to run in the GOP primary while on the Democratic side of the ballot there was a single candidate. In July we submitted a series of questions to the quartet of Republican contenders and stated we would do the same for the finalists from both parties prior to Election Day.
We asked some of the leaders of various entities in our area to supply us with a few posers to the candidates and they came up with what we think are important questions. Those questions have been delivered to Amanda Siggins and Joseph Fox, and we plan to post their answers later this week.
While we recognize many have already decided how they will cast their ballots we recognize there are still those among us who might be undecided. And even if not undecided we feel it might be advantageous for people to see how their chosen candidate stands on some key issues facing our communities. It is our hope their answers might give our readers a glance at who they are voting for.
So stay tuned folk.
