SAGINAW COUNTY DEMOCRAT READY TO UNSEAT INCUMBENT IN 4TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT RACE

Saginaw Township attorney Andrew Concannon will formally declare his candidacy for the 4th District Congressional seat currently held by Dave Camp, a Midland Republican. Mr. Concannon has decided to run against Mr. Camp because "Citizens of this District and this State are hurting. Over the last 5 years, 180,000 manufacturing jobs have been lost in Michigan. People in our communities are faced with an array of economic worries: high unemployment, the risk of foreclosure, lack of affordable health care--the list goes on and on. "Michigan has probably the most difficult economy in the country. Yet, regrettably, Mr. Camp has shown no leadership on helping to revitalize Michigan's economy after 9 terms as our representative. And he has stood in the way of bringing mortgage relief to Michigan homeowners and health care to children of the working poor. "We need a new voice in Congress, a voice that puts the focus back on the essentials--creating new jobs in Michigan and bringing relief to people struggling in this bad economy. If elected, I will work with the new Administration, my colleagues in Congress, and most importantly, you, in this effort. Together, community leaders, small business owners, farmers, academics in our universities, we can harness our talents, take advantage of innovative technologies, and put together a plan to put Michigan back to work. "Taking on a well-funded 9 term incumbent is a major challenge, and not one that I take lightly. But I love Michigan. And I want to make it better for my children and yours." This is Mr. Concannon's first attempt at elective office. He lives in Saginaw Township where he resides with his wife Tracy, and their sons William and Ethan. The campaign can be reached at 866-764-2008
