Dan O'Neil Announces Run For 104th State House District
Feb. 26, 2020
Democrat Dan O’Neil announced Tuesday he’ll be running for the 104th State House District seat representing Grand Traverse County in November. The seat is currently held by Republican State Rep. Larry Inman, who is term-limited. O'Neil filed paperwork to run with the county clerk's office.
O’Neil narrowly lost the 104th seat to Inman by 349 votes in the 2018 election. O’Neil, a Traverse City native, is a practicing attorney with the Traverse City firm of Thompson & O’Neil. He will be joined in the race by former Grand Traverse Republican Party Chair John Roth, who announced some months ago that he is also running.
“I’m running for State Representative because we need to act now if we hope to build a better Michigan,” O'Neil said in a press release. “In northern Michigan we understand that protecting the environment is good business, and that expanding our economy means strengthening our schools, fixing our roads, and protecting our water...If business and community leaders come together, we can build an economy that works for everyone, and I’m ready to head to Lansing to make that happen.”Comment
