Local Businessman, Joe Kent announces run for 46th State House Seat

On Wednesday, small business owner Joe Kent formally announced his candidacy for State Representative. Kent is running to replace the term-limited Rep. Brad Jacobsen in the 46th state house seat made up of Addison Township, Brandon Township, Oakland Township, Orion Township, and Oxford Township.

The announcement was hosted by Ken Matheis Jr. and held at The Complete Companies Craftwerk Complex in Orion Township. Supporting Kent’s candidacy are former State Senator Mat Dunaskiss, Orion Township Supervisor Chris Barnett, Addison Township Supervisor Bruce Pearson, and Addison Township Treasurer Lori Fisher, who will serve as Kent’s campaign treasurer.

“I’m running for State Representative because we need a voice in Lansing that will work to limit government and give more liberty and freedom back to hard-working taxpayers” said Kent. “My background as a tax and finance professional has prepared me to find ways to cut our state’s nearly $55 billion budget, streamline our tax code and provide opportunities for hard-working taxpayers to rise up and be successful.
