Where in Michigan are you? I am the current 1st Vice Chair of our County GOP and the President of our Republican Women’s Group here in Arizona. (I also won election to be a County Supervisor).
It’s become more and more difficult as we lose national elections, to attract more people. And I live in Arizona! Let me think about this and I will contact you. Please let me know where you are in Michigan, as I know some Party leaders there as well. - CHEERS!
The reason folks are running out of warm bodies for all of this are not particularly partisan ~ it's demographics. The baby boomers have already reached the age where they have enormous mortality rates, so you have to draw the new people from cohorts with many fewer members.
That means you gotta' bow and scrape to 20somethings and 30somethings. Tough for a lot of old timers ~ particularly those who have little sympathy for any group with a chronic unemployment problem (half of recent college graduates are unemployed nationwide).
Wow! Congratulations, Hildy! I remember a few spirited discussions with you over the years. Now you’ve grabbed the reins of this runaway stagecoach by stepping up to become a county commissioner, and I could not be more proud of you. That’s just admirable.
I haven’t been elected to anything other than Judge of Elections, but I have rallyed a vocal group of local residents and politicians to defeat an Agenda 21 proposal in our area. An NGO had made a spirited pitch to turn the the road along the Delaware River into a “Scenic Byway”, and made it seem like something so wonderful, that there soon would be unicorns grazing in beautiful pastures, with butterflies everywhere.
Well! There were several meetings held quickly amongst irate property owners in 2 townships. Flyers printed. Doors knocked on, and residents quickly schooled on Agenda 21’s less than favorable view of property ownership. Local Tea Parties, and the Club for Growth lent valuable assistance.
We filled 2 township meeting halls to overflowing with vocal opponents of the Scenic Byway proposal. The supervisors in the first township, who were about to rubber stamp their approval, voted 5-0 to reject the plan. The supervisors in the second township, which had already approved the plan, voted 5-0 to rescind the plan. Amazing what angry voters can achieve when they get informed and involved! The Scenic Byway is now defeated in this area (for now).
I’m sure, based on our prior debates, that you’ll be no less spirited in your quest to get us back on track. I look forward to your progress reports, and am rooting strongly for your success. God Bless You!
PS: I would advise the thread author to make Agenda 21 a big part of your platform. Its diabolical attack on property rights is something EVERYONE can get angry about. Check out: www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com. Rosa Koire is a loony lefty, but totally informed about Agenda 21, so she’s pretty cool in my book. Agenda 21 is something that all people can hate, and not feel bad about it. Good Luck!
