    Tom McMillin is GOP nominee for State Board of Education in Michigan

    Remember Tom McMillin, Michigan state rep who ran for U.S. congress in 2014? He had a forum on RPF.

    Well he's running for state board of education now and is one of the GOP nominees.




    It's too bad he's not in the Michigan legislature anymore where he was doing a lot of good stuff on civil liberty issues, but good to hear he's still in politics and I hope he wins. Thought it would be worth mentioning here and passing along his website if anyone is interested in supporting his campaign.

    Republicans take 2 seats on state education board

    Lori Higgins
    November 9, 2016

    Two Republicans won the two open seats on the State Board of Education, unseating the board's president who was running for re-election and leaving the board with an even split among Democrats and Republicans.

    It marks the first time in recent years that Republicans have gained such power on the eight-member board. But it also could foreshadow a tense time ahead given how far apart Republicans and Democrats on the board have been on key issues such as charter schools and school funding.

    The election of Trump to the presidency likely helped the Republican candidates.

    The winners, according to election results on the Michigan Secretary of State's web site: Republicans Tom McMillin, a CPA from Rochester Hills, and Nikki Snyder, a nurse from Whitmore Lake.

    ...

    Here are the vote totals:

    • McMillin, 1,956,063, 23.6% of the vote

    • Snyder, 1,917,608, 22.80%

    • Austin, 1,909,066, 22.70%

    • Ahmed: 1,695,342, 20.16%

    Four major-party candidates and seven minor-party candidates were running for the two, eight-year terms on the board. The eight-member board is responsible for setting education policy, advising the Legislature on key issues such as funding and hiring a state superintendent.

    This is great news. The Board is split now. Having McMillin on a board like this is like Stalin losing Moscow.
