Campaign website
James Wencel was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 84 of the Michigan House of Representatives.[1]


Campaign themes


Wencel's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

A New Direction

  • Excerpt: "If elected I will be looking at how the State of Michigan spends our tax dollars and other revenues that the state takes in."


  • Excerpt: "It is a shame that so many people with college degrees do not find work because their degree does not lead to a good paying job. Many of these people then go to a community or junior college to get the training to find a decent job. We need to change this system."

The Economy And Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Another issue is job creation. We need to keep and add good paying jobs in our area so the people living in our counties do not have to move in order to have a good paying job with benefits."

Wind Turbine Tax

  • Excerpt: "I will work with the county commissioners in both counties to make sure that the energy companies pay at the higher depreciation schedule which means more money for our districts schools, cities, counties, townships or any other taxing authority."
