Dearborn Rep. George Darany Announces Reelection Campaign

The Dearborn resident and former City Councilman announced his 2012 run on Tuesday.

Dearborn state Rep. George T. Darany wants another two years.

Darany, who won his seat in 2010 after serving on Dearborn City Council, announced Tuesday that he is running for reelection as state representative for Michigan’s 15th House District. The Democrat said his job serving Dearborn in the legislature is not done.

"It’s unfortunate, but the middle class, our kids, and our seniors were forgotten during the last year and a half by the legislature,” Darany said in a statement. “We’ve seen a tax on our seniors, cuts to our classrooms, and unnecessary burdens placed on our working families through the reduction of the homestead property tax credit and the elimination of charitable tax credits - all to give large corporations a massive tax break.

"I have worked hard to ensure Dearborn’s voice is strongly represented in Lansing by opposing these efforts and will continue the fight for my neighbors and my hometown.”

In his first term, Darany's efforts focused on fighting tax increases, as well as rallying on behalf of public schools. He hosted , as well as supporting .

Prior to his election to legislature, Darany served on the Dearborn City Council for four years. Darany also owned and operated a small business–the Classic Trolley Company.

Darany is active in the Dearborn Rotary Club, Dearborn Goodfellows, and he has been an active participant with the Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive.

“Our government needs to get back to serving the people,” Darany said. “The majority of Michiganders aren’t corporate CEOs with rich golden parachutes, they’re struggling families that are in jeopardy of being left behind by Lansing. I am anxious to continue working toward turning Michigan around and making sure our citizens, from our youngest to our oldest, are given the support they need to succeed.”

Darany says his job is not finished in Lansing. Really? What has he done - do we really need another weak politician representing us in Lansing wasn't the Polidori years bad enough? Who can we get to run against him? Tired of business as usual politicians who represent Dearborn!

What has George Darany done? Did you read the story? You need to be asking "what has George Darany not done!" He has been amazing. He is far from a "business as usual politician." He has brought the 15th district to life again in Lansing. You really need to check out your facts-even though the facts were right there for you to read in "Black and White." Seriously...

Darany is a decent man. Lastly it's not as if a state Rep does anything anyways. He is about the best you'll get out of Dearborn.
