The Lakes Area community provided a great response on Saturday morning to the LATP’s “Call To Action” meeting. With more than 75 attendees, Michigan 39th Congressional District hopeful Deb O’Hagan and Michigan 15th Senate District hopeful Matt Maddock were treated to enthusiasm and support for their respective candidacies. Most of the guests signed on as volunteers as the two candidates work to ramp-up to challenge their respective incumbents in the coming August 5th Republican primary.
After being introduced by LATP’s President, Marian Sheridan, Wes Nakagiri began the meeting by briefly speaking about his run for Lt. Governor and the need for precinct delegates to sign up to run this August 5th. Mr. Nakagiri emphasized the need for precinct delegates to sign up by May 6th – the deadline for applications.
Kelly Connolly, who heading up the part time legislature initiative, gave a brief description and progress report on the petition effort and the up coming events where volunteer help is needed. If interested please contact Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deb O’Hagan and Matt Maddock both spoke on the need for principled, conservative candidates who will support the Republican Party Platform of smaller government and lower taxes in our state.
Speakers were quick and to the point, because this was an Action Meeting. The rest of the time was spent describing the volunteer positions and helping the eager-to-help crowd find the best ways for them to channel their desire to support candidates who understand the need for sound conservative leadership in our government. The candidates mingled with the crowd and spent time one-on-one with attendees answering questions, describing their positions and sharing stories.
Most attendees signed up for volunteer positions with the campaigns as Deb and Matt organized to meet the demands of challenging their respective incumbents, Klint Kesto and Mike Kowall.
The response was great but so is the need if we are to take back our state and country.
Visit Deb and Matt’s websites to volunteer or to donate much needed cash. The time to take back your state and country is now.
