Political History: Tom Stobie, of Frankford, This is his first run for elected office.
Background: Stobie is a Vietnam War veteran who has had a 40-year career as an educator including time spent as superintendent of Frankfort-Elberta Area Schools from 2004 until his retirement in 2013. Besides being a school superintendent, Stobie has worked as a special education teacher, coach and principal. At his campaign announcement, he said: "I'm just tired of what the Legislature has done to public education in terms of the under-funding in the last few years. Child, Youth and Family Issues: If elected, Stobie says he plans to lobby for more school funding to help keep class sizes manageable and teachers well trained. Art, music, athletic and vocational programs are necessary for students to be well-rounded, he said. He blamed "Lansing politicians for failing the K-12 educational system, meddling in local governance and pushing through ill-conceived reform schemes. He added: "For too long, there has been a trend toward excessive multiple-choice testing rather than developing students who can think, read and write. He also favors restoring child care tax credits for families. He said "In order to have quality education, (districts) need to be funded properly.

Tom Stobie for State Representative
Stobie to run for state legislature Tom Stobie Tom Stobie retired as superintendent of Frankfort-Elberta Area Schools at the end of December. Now he's preparing to run as a Democratic candidate for the 101st District's seat in the state House of Representatives. "I'd thought about it for a while," Stobie said of his decision to retire and run for the legislature. "I've been in the position for nine-plus years and it was just time." Stobie started his career as a teacher and coach at Frankfort-Elberta Area Schools in 1974. He moved to Jackson Public Schools after five years and eventually retired from that district as a deputy superintendent. Stobie returned to the Frankfort-Elberta area after his retirement. He then accepted a job as the Frankfort-Elberta district's interim superintendent in 2004. It was supposed to be a one-year gig, but Stobie said school board members asked him to stay on after his first 12 months. Stobie pointed to two successful capital millage campaigns and the district's relative fiscal health -- including a balanced budget and a fund balance of 15 percent -- as his most prized accomplishments during his 9 years as Frankfort-Elberta's top administrator. "I'm proud of the way all of us, and it's not just me, kept the district afloat during the last five years since this downturn," Stobie said. Stobie has never held an elected office. He ran for a school board seat while living in Jackson County but was defeated. No other Democrats have announced intentions to run in the primary election slated for August, Stobie said.
