Bob Baird

Bob Baird, a retired accountant, is running for the Michigan House of Representatives in District 55. He defeated Bill Boring and Miha Todd in the Aug. 7 Republican primary and faces Democrat Rebekah Warren on Nov. 6.

Also on Aug. 7, Baird was elected as Republican Party precinct delegate in Ann Arbor Township, Precinct 1.

Baird made his first bid for public office in 2016, after being recruited to run by the state Republican Party. That year he ran for the House District 55 seat, and was defeated by Democrat Adam Zemke. Baird received 30.42% of the votes.

A December 2016 article in the Ann Arbor Observer characterized Baird as "a cheerful and surprisingly vigorous campaigner."

Baird lives in Ann Arbor Township. He is serving as treasurer for his campaign.
