Election to fill 74th District house seat

Residents will need to vote on Tuesday, May 3, to fill the state of Michigan house seat in the 74th district. It was formerly occupied by Mark Huizenga, who ran and won the house senate seat vacated by former senator Peter MacGregor. MacGregor is now Kent County treasurer.

There are three candidates running for the 74th district seat—but only two candidates are on the ballot. Republican Robert Regan and Democrat Carol Glanville won the special primary election March 1. However, Republican Mike Milanowski has also entered the race as a qualified write-in candidate.

Whomever wins on May 3rd will serve until the end of this year. 

Another primary and regular election will take place in August and November of this year, based on new districts, to serve in 2023.

The 74th district currently covers the cities of Cedar Springs, Rockford, and Grandville; and the townships of Algoma, Alpine, Solon, Sparta, and Tyrone.

Robert Regan – Republican

Robert Regan – Republican

I am running because I want to serve the people of our district and represent OUR shared values and OUR shared interests in Lansing.

I am a Bible believing Christian. I believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and that is the foundation of my worldview.

I am an entrepreneur.

A Finance Degree from Indiana University as well as an MBA from the DeVos Graduate School of Management opened the doors to an Operations Research position as well as the confidence to start my own manufacturing firm. After ten years of manufacturing, I lost it all and had the unfortunate experience of going through a bankruptcy in the recession of 2008/2009. Then it was time to rebuild. I became a professional recruiter, where I was instrumental in finding, vetting and securing top talent for great Michigan companies like Stryker, Steelcase and Tri-State Hospital.

Then, in 2014, I ran for State Representative. I took 2nd place, surprising everybody. I just love people, I worked really hard and I wanted to serve.

Whether it is finishing one of my 21 marathons, starting businesses, fighting for my children or writing three books. I give it my all and I will continue to give it my all for the people of the 74th.

I am an advocate for the 1st and 2nd amendment as well as the unborn. I support the arts as a volunteer at the Grand Rapids Ballet as well as the Grand Rapids Civic Theater.

But, my love is for people. I want people to become the absolute best they were created to be and frankly, I never met a person I didn’t like. We may not agree on everything. That’s ok. There is still something we can learn from each other and our unique perspective. I believe that within each of us is a divine spark placed there by God and that means we are all important. We all have value.
