Republican And Democratic Conventions Nominate MSU Trustee Candidates

Aug 25, 2018

On Saturday, the GOP and Democratic Michigan conventions nominated candidates for three university boards and the State Board of Education. 

While those races usually do not get much attention, Michigan State University's eight-member board has come under scathing criticism amid fallout from the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.

Two GOP trustees are not seeking re-election. In an uncontested race, businessmen Dave Dutch and Mike Miller were nominated to run for those seats at the party convention in Lansing.

Miller's bio said his daughter was a competitive gymnast and Spartan volleyball player who was treated by Nassar.

Democrats also selected their education board candidates in East Lansing on Saturday, including two for the MSU board: United Way corporate relations director Kelly Tebay and lawyer Brianna Scott.

Tebay has said she was sexually assaulted as an MSU student. They were among six candidates left in that contest by the time of voting.
