Gosselin to face opponent in county commission race
Robert Gosselin, the Republican Oakland County Commissioner for District 13 with a conservative record on social and fiscal issues, will be challenged in the primary by a first-time candidate who describes himself as a moderate.
Frank Johnston of Rochester Hills has filed for Gosselin's seat in the Aug. 5 primary. John E. Levin of Bloomfield Hills is the lone Democrat to file.
Deadline to file is 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 13.
Johnston, 28, said he comes from a political family. His father, Philip Weber, was a councilman in Romeo.
The candidate, who ran for a precinct delegate's seat and lost in 2006, said he is pro choice.
"For every question there is not one answer. There are a lot of people out there and not one answer fits everybody," he said. "We need newer thinkers, forward thinkers. By the time I'm 50, our actions now are going to affect children still being born."

It's good to see that Oakland County Commissioner and a previous winner of our Worst Oakland County Commisser, Bob Gosselin, will have a Democratic challenger.
