Kevin Jardine

Kevin Jardine is a financial services representative with MassMutual. He was unopposed in the Aug. 7 Republican primary and faces Democrat Sue Shink on Nov. 6.

That seat is currently held by Democrat Michelle Deatrick. This year she ran for the Michigan Senate in District 18 but lost to Jeff Irwin in the Aug. 7 Democratic primary.

Also on Aug. 7, Jardine was elected as a Republican Party precinct delegate in Superior Township, Precinct 4. He was previously elected as a delegate in 2014.

In 2016, Jardine was the Republican candidate for the Michigan House of Representatives in District 54. He lost to Democrat Ronnie Peterson in the general election, getting 24.69% of the votes.

During that state campaign, he advocated for a flat tax on income, for removing taxes and oversight on small businesses, and for replacing the employment tax that large businesses pay with a sliding employment tax. He also supported removing Michigan from the federal Affordable Care Act healthcare exchanges and instead implementing a consolidated, state-subsidized system. 

Jardine previously ran for Superior Township trustee in 2012. With four open positions in a five-way race, he lost with 11.39% of the votes. He was the only Republican in that race. 

Jardine lives in Superior Township. He graduated from Ann Arbor Huron High School and attended Pensacola Christian College. 

Jardine is serving as treasurer for his campaign.
