Update 5-25-2012 - Three way primary here. I've heard the name Matt Pryor from somewhere, although I'm not 100% sure from where. I also don't follow Troy politics closely.
Update 8-30-2012 - Martin Howrylak wins the primary.
2010 Results - Old District (41st)

This is an open seat based in Troy and Clawson. It's unchanged with redistricting. Troy leans republican but is getting more competitive. Clawson is very competitive and voted for Gore, Bush, and Obama.
I'll be surprised if this seat flips, even in an open seat. However, it could be a darkhorse if 2012 is a disaster. I know there's been county commissioner seats competitive in this area in the past. This area does generally lean republican with Troy, McCain/Obama being a big exception.
