Estate agents, business owners vie for 100th State House seat – The Morning Sun

A Clare business owner and a Reed City councilman are vying for the seat in the 100th District state house in Tuesday’s election.

Tom Kunse, 51, of Clare, is running for the seat vacated by term Republican Scott VanSingel against Nate Bailey, 33, of Reed City.

Kunse, a Republican, believes the future can be better than the present and says he has the power to help make that happen.

Bailey, a Democrat who said he wears many hats, is a real estate agent, planning officer, IT support specialist, graphic designer, web designer, and business consultant specializing in restaurants and bars, in addition to serving on the Reed City Council.

Kunse, who has lived in Clare for 50 years, has owned Northern Dry Bulk, a transport company, since 1994.

He said his goal, if elected, would be to promote crafts as a route to better-paying jobs.

Bailey, who is a real estate agent with Crossroads Realty of Michigan, believes his perspectives and knowledge in a variety of areas will be beneficial to the people of the newly delineated 100th District, which includes portions of Clare and Lake counties, all counties Osceola and Mecosta.

While Bailey believes there are many issues affecting residents in his district, he doesn’t believe some, like inflation, can be solved at the state level.
