The 110th Michigan House District Is comprised of Baraga, Gogebic, Houghton, Iron, Keweenaw, Ontonagon counties, and a portion of Marquette County. The residents of those counties know it’s almost time to re elect Scott Dianda to the Michigan State Legislature. Dianda was elected to his first term in 2012. He and his wife live in Calumet.

A lifelong resident of the Upper Peninsula, Dianda attended school at Lake Superior State University and The Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. Scott Dianda has experience in retail, and worked for the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Currently, State Congressman Dianda is working to strengthen business and protect the environment in his district. He introduced a resolution calling for the protection of the Great Lakes from an invasion of Asian Carp. The Great Lakes provide not only fishing and recreation, but are also vitally important to business in the region, whether it’s transportation, commercial or sport fishing. The Great Lakes must be protected from invasive species of fish that would destroy the ecosystem of the lakes. Our economy depends on keeping this natural resource healthy. Dianda also worked for funding to provide relief for the damage done by the previous winter. Especially important to the 110th District is developing new ways to provide energy to the U.P. The Presque Isle Power Plant costs too much to operate, and the people who rely on it for electricity can’t no longer afford paying for the power it generates. Scott Dianda’s resolution will provide the means for more efficient and less costly electricity for the residents who rely on PIPP, and the old coal-fired plant can be retired.

Scott Dianda is the representative who is working to make things better for the people of the 110th District.  To learn more about him, you can visit his website, where he can be contacted and provides news about his campaign. On November 4, re elect Scott Dianda, so he can continue working for the people of his district.
