To the editor:
This election day, Michigan's 110th district can do no better than to elect Scott Dianda to represent us down in Lansing. Scott has proven to me during this campaign season to have a genuine interest in the people of our district, and I feel confident that as a representative, he would seek to weigh in the different needs, interests and concerns we all have as citizens of this area.
Dianda's approachability and public visibility during the campaign season is a stark contrast to his opponent, Matt Huuki, who does not present himself as open to discussion and commentary.
Dianda's concerns are as appealing as his personable approach. His call to adequately fund education and to care for our seniors are but two issues that are of central concern to all residents of our area, and indeed, our state and nation.
Dianda understands that government, the business community and the public can work together to make our state better, and his experience both as a small business owner and as a state employee convince me that he can recognize and apply common ground approaches to our concerns.
As a voter, I am influenced by what I see, and in the community, I have seen a lot of Scott Dianda - knocking on doors, talking to people, and making his voice known.

All I see of (Rep. Matt) Huuki, but for a few fleeting glimpses at parades over the summer, is his voting record, and in that, the choice for me could not be made more clear.
Vote for Scott Dianda on Nov. 6.
