STANLEY T. GROT
Stan Grot announces runShelby Township Clerk Stanley T. Grot has announced his candidacy for the State Representative District 36 seat.
for State Rep District 36
District 36 is currently held by Pete Lund who will not be seeking re-election due to term limits.
"(I have) come to realize our community is in need for a true conservative Republican voice to fight for it in Lansing," said Grot. "I have heard the calls for reforms to government and a return to traditional values, and I know that I have the right mix of public sector experience and private sector ingenuity to represent those ideals."
Grot has served as Michigan's assistant secretary of state, owned and operated Polonia Restaurant, a small business in Hamtramck, served as a local public official in Shelby Township and Sterling Heights, and studied mechanical engineering at Macomb Community College and Wayne State University before earning a journeyman card as a master mechanic at General Motors where he worked for 11 years.
"I know how to impact government and make it work with a private-sector mentality," Grot said. "I understand how government works, however I will continue to maintain values rooted in my family's traditional blue-collar, working middle class beliefs that keep me in touch with individual taxpayers and residents, who are ultimately in charge of our government in this great nation."
Grot said his goal is to be the voice in Lansing for seniors, veterans, homeowners and families.
"Seniors need better representation against initiatives such as the pension tax and Obamacare, and veterans need their justly earned support from the government without jumping through hoops," he said.
Grot said his plan for Lansing also focuses on shrinking government, and eliminating wasteful spending and redundancies in the bureaucracy.
"Because of my experiences, I can go to Lansing and lead the way from day one with a common sense conservative Republican plan to further prosperity in our state," Grot said. "Having lived, worked and raised a family in Shelby Township, I know how successful conservative ideals can be, and I am ready to take that knowledge to Lansing and further those successes."
Grot resides in Shelby Township with his wife, Sylvia, and four children, who attend Crissman Elementary, Malow Junior High and Eisenhower High School.
