PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GENESEE COUNTY HOUSE REP CANDIDATE APPEARS ON YOUNG TURKS, WORLD’S LARGEST ONLINE NEWS SHOW
Marijuana legalization, local politics highlight Young Turks interview of Eric Gunnels, current Thetford Township Trustee and Michigan 48th District Candidate
THETFORD TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN: Sometimes controversial Thetford Township Trustee Eric Gunnels scored a huge boost to his campaign for the 48th district House seat via an interview with The Young Turks aired on July 5th.
The Young Turks is broadcast internationally and is the globe’s largest online news show.
The long interview saw Gunnels broadcasting from his campaign headquarters in Thetford Township. He received several compliments from the host, John Iadarola, for his campaign platform and his history of advocacy.
“I felt honored to have the opportunity to tell an international audience about the things that matter to my district,” Gunnels said. “Genesee County should be known for more than crisis and struggle, but that’s the only message media seems to want to broadcast. We have hope and optimism here, and that’s the message I wanted to get out there with my campaign.”
Gunnels ran for and was elected to the Thetford Township Board in 2012 after being disadvantaged by law enforcement over his status as a legitimate and registered medical marijuana caregiver. He was re-elected to a second term as a Trustee in 2016, winning his race by a 24% margin increase.
The interview covered topics like fossil fuels, criminal justice, marijuana law, the impending vote on an adult-use of marijuana program here in Michigan, and many other topics.
“To be recognized as the leader in the Democratic primary race in the 48th is special, but to be singled out for recognition because of my campaign platform is especially rewarding,” Gunnels recognized.
The 48th District includes the cities of Davison, Montrose, Clio and seven townships covering all of northern and eastern Genesee County. The district abuts Saginaw, Shiawassee and Lapeer Counties.
