We’re thinking Michigan’s 104th district representative Wayne Schmidt doesn’t expect to win Michigan’s 37th state senate seat in 2014.
In fact, he might have had that realization for several months now. Perhaps an angel of mercy descended at that time from the polling pearly gates, because it was in September that Schmidt, authored a bill that has yet to make it out of committee. Schmidt appears to be trying to create a quasi-government highly paid position that will be ‘tailored’ for his haberdashery retail management (suit store clerk) background, and government experience.
A Holland woman who was a Washington, D.C., aide to former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra is running for state House in the 90th District.
The seat is currently held by state Rep. Joe Haveman, R-Holland, who cannot seek re-election due to term limits.
Garcia said. “With term limits, we can’t afford to have somebody learn the ropes (before they get to work).”
Daniela Garcia planned to announce her candidacy for the Republican nomination Friday, Feb. 7, at Alpenrose Park, 4 E. 8th St. in Holland, with Hoekstra in attendance. She joins a field that has five other candidates.
She is the daughter of former Holland schools superintendent Frank Garcia [collected pension age 54].
Garica worked with U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers and during Hoekstra’s last two years in Congress [snip]
Is anything above really something to boast about? Let’s refresh our memories on Pete Hoekstra.
Folks, you have an opportunity for better in the 90th District, and his name is David Kroll.
So, this is what Snyder, Richardville, and Bolger, are peddling as their $350M “Grand Bargain”. Got it. And, Oakland County you sure know how to pick winners too.
“That is why it was a no-brainer when I supported a vote on the DIA millage in 2012. More than 63% of Oakland County voters agreed with me. And a majority of voters in Wayne and Macomb did, too.” – L. Brooks Patterson 01/19/2014
Rush correctly reveals connections with "Main Street" Republicans and the left's operatives.
We see some of the relationships that have developed, explaining how self professed Republicans can stray so far from principles for no other reason than maintaining power.
As alluded to in the article previous to this, it takes a special kind of donkey to carry the water for the Democrat party into the Republican camp. Rush’s update this morning struck a serious note of truth; especially given some of the the operatives here in Michigan.
Indeed, the “Main Street” “Republicans” Are neither.
More and more the left side reveals its mission to undercut the principles within the Republican Party
Needless to say, if I were to write a response that is in any way appropriate to this nonsense, it would almost assuredly result in a lawsuit.
A guy who has (as far as I know) never held a REAL private sector job, never owned a business, seems to travel the world on pixie dust, and is a persistent cancer within the Republican party has now hit the pancreas. When Dennis Lennox says:
Instead of falling into the left’s trap, Republicans should go on the offensive with a bold manifesto focused on creating opportunities that not only raises the minimum wage — an increase to $12 would impact 40 percent of working Americans — but reforms welfare and reduces taxes on main street innovators, entrepreneurs and job creators.
100 Congressmen Cosponsor Rep. Bentivolio’s Safe and Secure Federal Websites Act
The Information security community agrees: Healthcare.gov is an urgent national security risk
Following new revelations that the ObamaCare website, healthcare.gov, still lacks basic security protections, support for Rep. Bentivolio’s Safe and Secure Federal Websites Act attained 100 cosponsors this week.
Four committee chairmen, two-thirds of the Republican members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and three past and present chairmen of the Republican Study Committee count themselves among cosponsoring supporters of Rep. Bentivolio’s bill.
“I thank my colleagues for giving this issue the attention it deserves and responding quickly to the national emergency that this is,” Rep. Bentivolio asserted.
