Matt Koleszar for re-election as State Representative
The redistricting for legislative seats at first blush is not good for Livonia as we no longer have one State Representative for our hometown, Laurie Pohutsky.
A further look and additional understanding of the new districts set up an alternative thought process. Livonia will now have 3 state representatives.
State Representative Laurie Pohutsky will represent the northeast section of Livonia, Redford, and part of Detroit. So we keep Pohutsky representing Livonia as she is the odds-on favorite to win re-election.
The western part of Livonia from Eight Mile to Joy Road and approximately Farmington Road west will join a portion of Northville Township, City of Northville, and a portion of Plymouth Township with the City of Plymouth. Get a full picture of the new district here:
That new district has another incumbent, Matt Koleszar, running for re-election. Koleszar will be seeking his third term as State Representative.
Koleszar, a former teacher before winning election 4 years ago, understands the need for a strong public school system. He works diligently and some suggest tirelessly to see that our public schools get the finances they need to continue providing a strong educational system for our children.
He has the strong support of police and fire having been endorsed by the Police Officers Association of Michigan, the Michigan Fraternal Order of Police, and the Michigan Professional Firefighters Union.
