ARCADIA TWP. — It’s official. Kevin Daley wants to make another run at becoming our next 31st Senate representative.

Daley, 59, on Friday officially announced his 2018 candidacy to run for the seat currently held by Sen. Mike Green, R-Mayville. Green is term limited and cannot run again. Daley would be on the August 2018 primary ballot. As of this weekend he’s the first candidate to announce his interest in the 2018 election to serve the three county Senate district.

“I am proud of my solid conservative record throughout my time in public service from the local to the state level,” said Daley. “It is with the support of my family and the good people of Bay, Lapeer and Tuscola counties that I would like to continue my service as state senator for the 31st.”

Green is reportedly on the short list to be appointed by the Trump administration to serve as director of the Michigan office of the United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development.

Green’s appointment has been said to be “certain,” though when he takes the job is undetermined. It may not be until May or later. If Green gets the federal post he will have to resign as state senator and then a special primary election date will be set by the governor’s office to begin the two-election process to fill the open seat.

Daley will run to fill Green’s partial term as well, should he get the federal post.

Daley served as 82nd House District representative from 2009-2014 during which time he said he “offered a common-sense approach to legislation and positive change within state government” while never missing a vote or session during his six years of service.

Daley served as chairman of the House Agriculture Committee where he “was a fierce advocate for the needs and values of rural Michigan. He stands behind his 100-percent prolife and pro-Second Amendment voting record as state representative.

Daley was born and raised in Arcadia Township and continues the family farming tradition as a fifth-generation farmer operating on 400 acres. He is a lifelong member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and has been involved as a board member and chair of the parish council, as well as a member of the Knights of Columbus.

He has also committed time, talent and service to the Lapeer County Farm BureauMichigan Corn Growers AssociationMichigan Milk Producers Association, the Kiwanis Sunrise Club of Lapeer and the Lapeer/Tuscola Habitat for Humanity. Daley began his public service as an Arcadia Township trustee, treasurer and supervisor over the course of 24 years.

Daley and his wife of 39 years, Debbie, a teacher in Lapeer County, raised three children who have given them five grandchildren.

Daley’s election campaign is co-chaired by Mary-Sue Weber and Chris Tuski. Treasurer is Bob Rowden.
