Tag: Independence Caucus of Kent County
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
The Michigan Republican Party's State Committee is scheduled to choose a method of selecting the Republican Presidential Nominee for Michigan on Saturday, August 13th, 2011. Additionally, the Michigan GOP's Policy Committee is slated to make a decision on Tuesday, July 12th. Their vote will recommend to the full State Committee which process should be followed in Michigan regarding selecting the GOP's nominee by Michigan Republicans and possibly the general public. However, many feel that we have not yet had an open and transparent process to solicit the opinions of grassroots activists and concerned Republicans across the state.
Therefore, concerned citizens, MIGOP State Committee members, and grassroots activists are being invited to voice their opinion in a series of town-hall style forums. (Details on the Kent County event follow the break.)

Just before the 2011 MIGOP State Convention, Troy Rolling, who was Bobby Schostak's challenger for MIGOP State Chair (and who was running without a Co-Chair candidate) withdrew his name from consideration, and his withdrawal letter was presented at the district caucuses on Friday night. This left now-Chairman Schostak running unopposed. After he and his co-chair Sharon Wise were unanimously approved by the General Session on Saturday, and a few speeches (Ron Weiser actually referenced my interview with him during his address), the convention got down to the business of nominating, supporting, and electing the MIGOP vice-chairs for the 2011 - 2012 term. Those results, and some other observations, are below the fold.
