Local Politics

All politics are local. Local gerrymandering and extreme politics in primaries have produced the unthinkable — state and national elections that don’t represent the wishes of the majority.  Get involved — you CAN make a difference. And have fun at the same time.  Call or email and we’ll get back to you.  Or Click Here to let us know how you would like to help.

Mueller Firing Rapid Response

We have all heard the speculation that Donald Trump could try to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.  In the event that this happens, MoveOn.org is planning Rapid Response Rallies.

Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.

Rallies will begin hours after news breaks of a Mueller firing:

  • If Mueller is fired BEFORE 2 P.M. local time, events will begin @ 5 P.M. local time
  • If Mueller is fired AFTER 2 P.M. local time, events will begin @ noon local time the following day

There are two rallies planned in our area, one in Petoskey’s Pennsylvania Park and one in the Traverse City Open Space.

Follow this link to learn more about the event.

Then scroll down the right side of the page to Michigan events and sign up for the rally you will attend.

Get your signs made NOW and be ready to respond!
