There’s a new candidate in the running for the new 38th District in the Michigan House. Joey Andrews, who previously ran for state House in the current 79th District, is seeking the seat. The state’s redistricting commission created the new 38th. When it’s active, the 38th will include lakeshore communities all the way from New Buffalo up to Saugatuck. Areas farther inland are in different districts. Andrews is running as a Democrat, and the Democratic party stands a much better change of holding the 38th than it did the old 79th. Andrews told The Herald Palladium water issues are a major concern for the district. He currently works as a policy analyst for the AFL-CIO. He was previously a strategist for the campaign of Senator Gary Peters and ran a solar panel business. This now makes two Democrats running in the 38th District. Annie Brown of South Haven previously announced her candidacy.
