Stobie Bows Out Of 101st House of Representatives Race

Tom Stobie has ended his Democratic bid for the 101st District in the Michigan House of Representatives.  Stobie, the former superintendent of the Frankfort-Elberta Area Schools, ran for the seat in 2014 and was narrowly defeated.

Stobie said, “While I am disappointed that my campaign is ending today, I am confident that the families of the 101st House District have a friend in former representative Dan Scripps, who I am supporting in his election bid,” Stobie also went on to say, “Families in Northwest Michigan deserve a representative who will take their voice to Lansing and make their priorities his own at the Capitol, and I am confident that Scripps will do that.”

With his endorsement of Scripps, Stobie said that Scripps will work to prioritize the working and middle-class families in Lansing by battling for educational issues, supporting small businesses and holding the government accountable to the people of the 101st House District.

Sniegowski followed a typical plea-and-sentencing aggrement.

Judge Sniegowski was told by Pena King in January that she found, what she believed to be stolen medical supplies from the Animal Hospital of Ludington in her garage and with the help of her daughter transported the items in garbage bag into her home.

Judge Sniegowski said the sentence was excessive due to new guidelines and the fact that Pena King was already on probation, which allowed for the guidelines to be exceeded.

Pena King also received a sentence of 16 months to two years within the Michigan Department of Corrections.  Which will be served concurrently for a probation violation.
