Glenn Lottie is running for State Senator for the 35th district. The 35th district includes Leelanau, Benzie, Manistee, Wexford, Kalkaska, Missaukee, Roscommon, Clare, Osceola, Lake and Mecosta counties.

Glenn Lottie is a resident of Brethren. He’s a retired electrical engineer with a BSEE degree . His civic and political experience includes 8 years serving as Manistee County Commissioner. He also served as district president of the Manistee United Way. He is a veteran member of the Spirit of the Woods Conservation Club.

The issues Mr. Lottie is most concerned about include education. He wants to make teaching a profession without the current stressful testing and evaluations meant to penalize teachers based on how well students take a test. He also wants to make per-pupil funding equal throughout the state, so all districts get the same level of funding. Charter schools need to be put under the same regulations as public schools, and updates to curriculum that provides students with the skills they need to succeed once they are out of school. Lottie also wants to see more regulations for fracking, requiring that the companies reclaim the water they use instead of dumping it into the ground full of toxic chemicals. Most interesting of all, Glenn Lottie believes that if our state legislature is only going to work part time hours, they should be compensated with part time pay. He suggests the current minimum wage.

Glenn Lottie wants to be a voice in Lansing with an ear for the people of the 35th district. We deserve someone who will work in the state senate for us, and not for special interests or the deepest pocket. On November 4, vote for Glenn Lottie.
