Eastern Michigan University student Steven Kwasny has announced his candidacy for state representative of the 53rd district.  


The 28-year old says he will not accept campaign donations.  Kwasny believes relationships change when money is involved.

"Me and the campaign are trying to prove it's possible to run a race with not having to treat like the seat is for sale."

The political science student plans to run a paperless campaign by using the Internet to get his messages out.  He is running against Washtenaw County Commissioner Yousef Rabhi.
