MARQUETTE - Doreen Takalo of ..., 1 July 2008 [cached]
MARQUETTE - Doreen Takalo of Skandia announced her intention Monday to run for state Rep.
Takalo is a Republican, so won't face Lindberg, D-Marquette, a one-term incumbent, until November.
Takalo is the clerk for West Branch Township and has held various township government positions for 24 years, she said.
She held a kickoff celebration to announce her candidacy Monday night at the Coffee Cup in Marquette.
Takalo said her experience in constituent services and on many boards and committees give her the ability and knowledge to get things done in Lansing.
"That's a big maze down there, helping people walk through things," she said."To be able to pick up the phone and call your state representative and say, 'How do I get my driver's license back?' That's what I like is helping people."
She is the chair for the board of Teaching Family Homes and is a member of the Lake Superior Community Partnership.She's also been active with the township planning committee and water authority, and the Marquette County Township Association, Transportation Authority, and Commission on Aging.
She said while she is the executive officer of the Marquette County Republicans, it is more important to her to represent the people in the district than to follow the party line.
"In township government, you have to work with both sides.You don't have a choice," she said, adding that approach is needed at the state level."I'm always amazed at some of the legislation they pass.It seems like it doesn't fit, it isn't going to work for people."
Takalo said in her announcement she wants to see state government work in a more productive way and within its budget.
"How many of us could vote in a budget that's millions of dollars more than what we have?"she said.
