Legislator announces support for fellow Democratic candidate in U.P.
CALUMET – State Representative Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) announced his endorsement of Grant Carlson today, the Democratic candidate running to represent the 108th District in the Michigan House of Representatives. Dianda cited Carlson’s longtime commitment to communities in the U.P. and promise to fight for increased education funding for our kids and tax relief for middle-class families and seniors as reasons he stands by the candidate.
“After many conversations with Grant Carlson about the state of the Upper Peninsula and ways we can improve our communities in Michigan, I am confident that he is the best man to represent the interests of the 108th District,” Dianda said. “Carlson cares deeply about restoring education funding so our kids have a shot at a world-class education, he knows how important it is to our seniors that we repeal the unexpected tax on retirement, and he knows what our middle-class families need to get by. Carlson and I share a lot of the same priorities, and I am proud to give him my endorsement.”
Grant Carlson has lived in Norway for most of his life. After graduating from Norway High School in 1993, he went on to receive his bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University, followed by his Juris Doctorate from Michigan State University College of Law. After he completed his education, Carlson returned to Norway where he now lives with his wife, Lisa, and their two school-aged daughters. He is a partner at Mouw and Celello Law Firm, president of the Norway Area Community Foundation and a longtime Kiwanis member. Carlson also previously served as a dedicated Norway-Vulcan Area School Board member.
“I am honored to receive state Rep. Scott Dianda’s endorsement,” Carlson said. “I look forward to working with him on the campaign trail, and hope to join him in Lansing next year as the new voice of Michigan’s 108th House District.”
