We've got a guy in Kalamazoo! Vermillion emigré Jon Hoadley is throwing his hat in the ring for the Michigan House of Representatives. He's running as a Democrat in the heavily Democratic 60th District, which includes the city of Kalamazoo and some neighbors.
Hoadley's made his name in Michigan as an effective community organizer. Hoadley's important work includes campaigning for Unity Michigan, which has won local ordinances in Kalamazoo and elsewhere to protect the basic civil rights of LGBT citizens.
Of course, the surest proof that Hoadley will succeed is his status as a distinguished alumnus of the august Vermillion High School debate team, where he won multiple trophies as a debater and extemporaneous speaker.
Hoadley will be a good rep. After you've donated to your local Democratic candidates, send Hoadley some ActBlue love and help him fight for justice and fairness in Michigan!
