MECOSTA COUNTY — As the Aug. 7 primary election nears, two local Democrat candidates are vying for the opportunity to have his name appear on the November ballot to represent the residents of Mecosta, Osceola and Wexford counties.
George Huffman III and Brendan Maturen hope to win the Democrat nomination in two weeks. Whoever wins the nomination will face incumbent Rep. Phil Potvin, R-Cadillac, for the chance to represent the residents of the 102nd district in the Michigan House of Representatives. The seat holds a two-year term. Potvin was first elected to the position in 2010.
