Please RSVP, but if you make a last minute decision, please come anyway.
UPDATE: Social Distancing
is an alternative to the mask. If you are asked to put a mask on by the voter,
it's all up to you. Please be respectful. Remember some people are at greater
risk, and on the flip side, some people have a medical condition that limits
their ability to wear a mask. I trust my fellow citizens to decide. Thank you
for your attention. If you don’t have a mask and want one, we
will supply you with one.
1) We are not enforcers - wear a mask and social distance as you see fit.
2) SIGNS are on a first come, first serve basis.
3) ALSO - OPEN INVITATION to Candidates - We would love it if you came and spoke or called in.
Per executive orders 2020-147 and 2020-153:
1) Paragraph 13, section 2 (""Although a face covering is strongly encouraged even for individuals not required to wear one, the requirement to wear a face covering does not apply to individuals who:"") part b: (""Cannot medically tolerate a face covering;"")
2) HIPPA laws and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibit disclosure of medical conditions.... that might prevent the toleration of a face covering.
3) We are not going to physically restrain anyone and force them to wear a mask.
4) We are not going to deny anyone their 1st Amendment Right to Peaceably Assemble.
5) Whitmer's Executive Orders are NOT laws.
We will continue to have our meetings on the 4th Monday of the Month, IN PERSON and via CONFERENCE CALL.
IF RUNNING FOR OFFICE:
The filing deadline is April 21st. You will need a NOTARIZED SIGNATURE, your Township Clerk is usually a notary; also, you can call your banking institute and they can help you get your AFFIDAVIT OF IDENTITY Notarized. You will need to either mail in or drop off your nominating petitions and affidavits to your Township or County Clerk. Call and ask.
This is the Alcona County Directory: https://alconacountymi.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/County-Directory-2019-WIP1.pdf
IF RUNNING FOR PRECINCT DELEGATE:
The filing deadline is May 5th. You only need to fill out an AFFIDAVIT OF IDENTITY and have it NOTARIZED. Then you must send it to the County Clerk or drop it off. Your Township Clerk will also be able to file this for you properly.
Here is the Precinct Delegate Form:
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has done nothing to extend the deadline to ease the burden of collecting signatures and notarizing paperwork during Governor Whitmer's state wide "Stay Home Stay Safe" order. I do not understand why there is no relief for those getting involved in the election process during this pandemic, but here we are, facing a deadline.
Congratulations to Rep. Jack Bergman for getting his paperwork and signatures finalized. I look forward to voting for you on November 3rd.
We will elect 4 Delegates and 4 Alternate Delegates to the District Caucus and State Convention.

I Condemn Violence; As We All Should – Commentary by Carrie Mullins, ACR Chair
“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America.” - @realDonaldTrump
The MSM needs to stop the "Trump and all his supporters are racist, bigots, etc...." WRONG! Their opinion is neither fact nor news worthy. Saying something over and over and over again doesn't make it true, but the hateful followers buy it hook line and sinker. It's a play right out of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.
Too many Americans have fallen for the long term tactics, and I fear we are getting closer and closer to the end game. Liberals and Conservatives used to have a lot more in common 50+ years ago. Now, we are so divided and it's infecting our youth. The hate is bleeding over into violence. And let's face facts; it's the Liberal Extremists who make up the majority of the politically and socially violent.
We have to stop the hating, the name calling, the mud slinging. We have to at least agree to be Americans. One thing we should always have in common is a country we can be proud of. There's always room for improvement, but the fundamentals shouldn't change. The USA is a Constitutional Republic; a country where we are free to strive for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
I am proud to be an American citizen. And I formally condemn the violence. There is no reason to encourage or commit harm to others. I feel that hate, the lack of respect for life, the loss of the family unit and the steady decline of a civil society have been embraced by the Radicals, and that acceptance has taken us to this point. Hopefully we can use reality, honesty and truth to correct this mentality and restore sanity and respect for others.

STATEWIDE MICHIGAN PROPOSALS - Full text is on our 2nd page.
18-1 – Proposed law to legalize possession, use and cultivation of marijuana by individuals 21 or older and commercial sales of marijuana through state licensed retailers.
●This 14 page law is complex and confusing. It will be harmful to our communities. Any taxes collected will go to welfare as seen in Colorado, Oregon and Maine. Plus home growers will be allowed to sell without paying taxes. We all know big tobacco caters to the poor, what do you think big marijuana will do? Learn more here: http://healthyandproductivemi.org/
A NO vote is recommended.
18-2 – Constitutional Amendment to establish a commission of citizens with exclusive authority to adopt district boundaries.
●Called Voters not Politicians (a group paid for by Soros funded foundations), this would create an unelected bureaucracy for the purpose of redistricting. This will cost the taxpayers at least $527,000 in the first year and will not be able to be easily changed as it is an alteration to the Michigan State Constitution.
A NO vote is recommended.
18-3 – Authorize automatic and Election Day voter registration, no reason absentee voting and straight ticket voting and add current legal requirements for military and overseas voting and post election audits to the Michigan Constitution.
●This means that a local clerk has to accept voter registration even on the day of an election = longer lines, increased cost to local municipalities for more staff, proof of citizenship will be very difficult to verify which may lead to more illegals voting in MI.
A NO vote is recommended.
ALCONA COUNTY MILLAGE PROPOSAL
For the purpose of maintaining, operating, rehabilitating and equipping public safety and other properties belonging to the county. $1 per $1,000 of taxable property value for a period of four years.
●Due to the ever increasing needs for public safety in the county of Alcona, to help mitigate future fees and tax increases, and prevent loss of services, a YES vote is recommended.
