For those of you who haven't already figured it out, I have thrown my hat in the ring for the Michigan state house 104th district.
And yes I did the 'project' thing.
And then pretend its somehow my fault. Sad. But it's on them.
You guys can do as you please. I have been a team player. But I know which team I am on. I have been involved in the local, state, and national Republican scene, and helped to ensure that in 2010 we took the majorities in the places that mattered. Our team was composed of a great number of grassroots concerned citizens. I was a member and only one of those great many patriots that returned Michigan to a level of sanity that was impossible under the prior administration. Each of us worked in the manner we each saw fit, and some of us quite effective.
But none of it was done to see additional picking of winners, or to see the continued stealing from Michigan HOME HEALTH CARE AIDES, or continuing oppression on business owners or small farmers, or the negligence in the failure to pass Right To Work in Michigan. And at least one more independent voice of reason is needed.
And I need neither permission, nor a place in line to provide a very different vision of how the job should be done, or whom should represent our district. We can work together after I win the seat, but it will be a whole lot easier if leadership doesn't shoot itself in the foot by throwing accusations (you know who you are) to friends whom I have purposefully left out of the discussions prior to making the decision to run.
An apology is in order to those whom have been accused of recruiting me by those who fail to understand what I represent.
And tomorrow by 4pm, perhaps they will have a few others to worry about?
