For Immediate Release–
Arcand kicks off campaign tour
Iron River, MI–Alan Arcand (R-Iron River) challenging Republican incumbent Dan Benishek in the August primary, will begin his first campaign tour in the northwestern Lower Peninsula with stops in Cheboygan, Boyne City, Harbor Springs, East Jordan and Onaway. The six day tour is intended to introduce Alan to the district voters west of I-75. He will be speaking at Northern Lights Recreation, 8865 Michigan 119, in Harbor Springs on Monday, May 5th at 7 p.m.
Arcand, a 37 year old Air Force veteran and father of three young boys, is a firm believer in Constitutional government. “When I joined the United States Air Force I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and I did not forget it when I changed my uniform.” His “Arcand for Congress” Facebook page is open for questions from voters, and he answers as many as possible directly on the site. Other event details will be posted there also as they are confirmed.
Many of you may know that I have been actively assisting the Alan Arcand D1 primary campaign. Depending on your personal view of today’s Republican party, your reaction to these reactions from some of the establishment ‘unity’ pumpers will be immediate, and vehement. Someone on one side of the GOP fence or the other, had a very bad day yesterday. Mostly, Jesse Osmer…
There are two incidents of note here; one virtual, the other in face-to-face real time. The virtual incident was an exchange on FaceBook between me and Mr. Osmer. Osmer, if you’re following closely, is the Chair of the D1 Executive Committee; and a self proclaimed shill for Representative Benishek, as he proudly proclaims on his FaceBook page, a “life event”…His shared ‘timeline’ post yesterday morning of Dr. Dan’s PR on Right to Life’s endorsement of the good doctor came as no surprise to me; but, being who I am, I simply HAD to respond.
I’d like to take this opportunity to address some of the disheartening comments made recently, especially on this website, regarding my plan to help the City of Detroit navigate through and successfully emerge the financial hardship that they are currently facing.
