Novi High School teacher and Hamburg Township resident Dale Rogers is making his second run for the state House seat currently filled by state Rep. Bill Rogers, R-Genoa Township.
Dale Rogers — no relation to Bill Rogers — on Friday filed his paperwork for the Republican nomination for the 42nd District seat representing Brighton and the townships of Brighton, Genoa, Green Oak, Hamburg and Putnam in the House.
Dale Rogers said he hopes to provide an alternative Republican viewpoint from further-right GOP officials and candidates. He also ran for the seat in 2012.
Brighton Township Treasurer Lana Theis and Brighton Area Schools Board of Education member Nick Fiani are also running in for the seat in the the Aug. 5 GOP primary. A Democratic candidate for the House seat has yet to be announced.
Bill Rogers is term-limited, which means he must vacate the seat this year.
I don't know Dale well, although I met him a couple of times. He's a nice guy, and is not surprisingly running on education related issues.
The 2012 primary was one sided, but there's no incumbents this time. Lana Theis and Nick Fiani are also running for the open seat.With three people running, there is a choice in this election.
