VOTE – Tuesday, November 6, 2018
I was invited to this event as a Trustee for St. Clair County Community College.
SC4 received a Silver Lifetime Membership Award.
“United Against Hate”
The theme for the 2018 NAACP Port Huron Branch Banquet.
Guest Speaker was Current Mayor of Flint, MI, Dr. Karen Weaver.
I have talked about Flint, our water in Michigan & the Emergency Manager Law a great deal this year.
Let’s review the Flint timeline:
2011 – Flint goes into receivership & an Emergency Manager is appointed. This is AFTER the VOTERS rejected Emergency Manager Law.
I have spoken about how it is unethical for legislators go against voters.
2014 – Flint Water Crisis.
2015 – Dr. Karen Weaver elected Flint Mayor.
Early in 2018, my opponent held a Town Hall.
He told all assembled that the Flint Water Crisis was the fault of the Flint Mayor. The Emergency Manager was in charge prior and during the onset of the crisis. The mayor held little to no control during that entire time.
Accountability & truthfulness matter.

THUMB’S UP TOUR — MICHIGAN SUGAR COMPANY
Michigan Sugar Company employs 1,000 seasonal workers during peak season and 900 year-round employees — many who live in the 10th District.
Built in 1901, over 1,000 grower-owners from the area provide the sugar beets that can produce over one billion pounds of sugar each year, which it markets under the Pioneer Sugar and Big Chief Sugar brand names.
A big THANK YOU to the folks at Michigan Sugar for letting us tour the facilities of such a great local company that is the third largest of its kind in the United States!
From our Bad Axe / Kinde Town Hall:
Thank you, David McDonald!
Little souvenir! Thanks WPHM Radio
WPHM Candidate interview
WPHM Legislative candidates spar during forum 10/17/18
Last night (10/23) St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) hosted a Candidate event for St. Clair County school boards.
ZERO GOP Candidates attended, though all were invited.
STUNNING lack of interest.
I believe all three of the GOP Candidates live in St. Clair County.

A candidate forum between local candidates running for Michigan House of Representatives and Senate seats was held Wednesday evening at Port Huron’s Municipal Office Center. The event was presented by WPHM and the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce. Among the topics discussed were education, no fault auto insurance and infrastructure. In attendance was 81st district State Representative Republican incumbent Dan Lauwers, who is term limited and making a bid for the State Senate. His Democratic challenger, Debbie Bourgois, who currently serves as a St. Clair County Community College trustee was also in attendance. Democrat Joshua Rivard and Republican Gary Eisen also participated, with each of them hoping to filling Lauwer’s house seat. 83rd district Republican incumbent Shane Hernandez also attended the event, his Democrat opponent, Stefanie Brown, was absent. The event fielded questions from the public and was moderated by WPHM’s Paul Miller.
I have posted ideas on HOW to talk to people, again. I mention the impeccable credentials of MI Supreme Court Candidate, Megan Cavanagh. Megan Cavanagh spoke at the St. Clair County Democrats annual Fall Brunch on 9/22/18.
