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.
Wednesday, June 27 – Kick-off to the Campaign Dinner
Join us for a General Membership Dinner on Wednesday, June 27 at 5:30 at East Park Tavern in Charlevoix. Special guests will be Melissa Fruge, candidate for State House, Jim Page, candidate for State Senate, and Brandon Dillon, MDP Chair. This is a great opportunity to get an update from Brandon, but equally important for Brandon to hear from us!
Cost for the dinner is $35 per person and includes tax and gratuity.
Menu includes assorted charcuterie, bread basket and an appetizer choice of New England Clam Chowder or a House Salad. Entree selections are a baseball cut sirloin with garlic smashed redskin potatoes or chicken grenobloise with rice pilaf. B0th entrees are served with a seasonal vegetable. A vegetarian entree is available upon request.
RSVPs with an appetizer and entree choice are required for this event by Sunday, June 23. To RSVP or for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 231-753-8411.
Mueller or Rosenstein Firing Rapid Response
We have all heard the speculation that Donald Trump could try to fire special counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy A.G. 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 will be a rally in Petoskey’s Pennsylvania Park aSpace. Follow this link to learn more.
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!
