Just happened across this little blurb in mLive, and talk about a vicious circle of dysfunction.
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.
I don't really know much about Mr. Kroll but there is a really great conservative running for that seat in Geoff Haveman. He is a constitutional conservative with libertarian leanings, on the committee to restore Michigan's part time legislature, involved in the Ottawa GOP executive committee, and the Ottawa County Patriots . Has put together a great campaign so far and is the best alternative to the lobbyist Daniela Garcia.
Check out his website: http://www.votehaveman.com/
Are there any others in the 90th who have indicated they might, but have not filed yet?
Ben, not sure how this will come off as seeing that you don't know much about me, and I have nothing against Geoff. I am also a constitutional conservative with libertarian leanings. I was not asked to be on the committee for part time legislature and the reason is unknown, (not that I'm offended) but I will be helping with the petition drive. I have volunteered for Ottawa County GOP for the last 4 years and honestly the southwest quadrant for the GOP has well established people so I knew trying to unseat anyone would be unsuccessful. I am the former chairman of the Ottawa County Patriots, and nothing against Geoff, but my involvement over the last year is 3 times as much as Geoff's. Again being honest, and perhaps I'll lose some potential votes, but the real difference between Geoff and I besides our occupation (He's a lawyer, and I'm a factory worker and part time driving semi trucks) is he would have more knowledge (being a lawyer) and experience (GOP executive committee and restoring part time legislature committee) We both have the heart to make a positive difference, and I know my campaign is going to that of a public servant to assure the people I'm working for them, not lobbyist and interest groups. I have written a book on Capitalism if you want to get to know me more you can go to this websitehttp://dorrance.stores.yahoo.net/carehowtoapc.html I also have a fan page on facebook and here is the link. https://www.facebook.com/pages/David-Kroll/275288159150752?ref=hl I hope this helps, and have a great weekend
Ben, Just want to introduce myself. I am also a constitutional conservative and though I'm not on the committee for part time legislature, I'm for it, and will be helping with the petition drive. I may not be on the Executive committee for Ottawa County GOP, but I have volunteered for 4 years now. I'm also the former chairman of the Ottawa county Patriots and this past year my involvement is been 3 times as much as Geoff's. Besides occupations (Geoff being a lawyer and I being a factory worker/part time semi truck drive) the difference is knowledge (lawyer) and experience (committee's Geoff serve which you pointed out) We both have the heart to make a positive difference. I know I may lose some votes with that last honest statement but the people deserve to know everything to make the right choice. I have written a book called Capitalism revisited and you can go to this websitehttp://dorrance.stores.yahoo.net/carehowtoapc.html and I also have a fan page on facebook and here is the link for that https://www.facebook.com/pages/David-Kroll/275288159150752?ref=hl I hope this helps you as I want everyone to know I believe in being a public servant that works hard for the people and not lobbyist.
I apparently didn't put a space between website and the link for the book so here it is again. http://dorrance.stores.yahoo.net/carehowtoapc.html I also want to say thank Corinthian Scales for this article. I don't know who you are, but it was a good surprise.
No Mr. Kroll, you do not know me. What is important is that you are a true citizen. I am not interested in nepotism and law degrees, nor their trolling U of M friends that show up here above. - CS
I know Dave would do well if elected to Congress. Personally, I myself am looking to run in 2016 with some of Dave's teachings. I do hope that regardless of how the polls turned out that everyone can work together in improving out state.
