The Seventh District held their monthly meeting tonight after the third protest in front of the Congressional Field Office. Again, there were no hired or bussed in mercenaries from outside the district and the Sheriff's department didn't even have to have even one car at the ready. They must have already figured out that there will be no unruly behavior if the Dems are absent. Schauer's staff invited folks to make individual appointments last week, but this week they were more arrogant than usual and just hid inside.
We reported a total of 8 Town Hall meetings already held with several yet to come. There were also seminars which were held beginning in Saline and Jackson with another scheduled in Jackson next week. A rally is scheduled in Jackson at the Cascades in conjunction with the Tea Party Express which is traveling across the country. They are starting on the west coast Friday and will finish September 12 in Washington, D.C. with what promises to be one of the largest gatherings on record.
We have an embarrassment of riches as far as candidates are concerned. Tim Walberg has been taking part in the Town Hall meetings with both sides of the question being respectful and open to his positions. His potential challenger, Brian Rooney, visited the meeting this evening and outlined his credentials which are impressive. If you have not heard as yet, his son Blaise, is to undergo surgery the last of September. Assuming that all goes well, he will start campaigning at that time.
We are looking forward to a an exciting election year in 2010, but we need to elect Mike Nofs first. So get ready for the final push in the next couple of months. This could probably be called a dress rehearsal for the election which will bring Michigan back to a healthy state next year. It can't come soon enough.
