Campaign Sidekick for Door Knocking, Walk Lists, Phone Banking
I'm the Alcona County Admin. I can add you to the volunteer list and provide you with login info. There is a smart phone app and a website.
Google Play or other app store: Campaign Sidekick (pictured below)
Go here after you receive your login info to utilize the online version: https://michigan.campaignsidekick.vote/
I can also create Walk Lists/Books for you if you prefer paper. For example, I have broken up Mikado Township (my precinct) into 6 manageable days of door knocking. I can print the lists, or use them in the app.
We had a good meeting last night. It was very nice to hear from Cam Cavitt, candidate for the 106th. We also heard from Rick with the Proposal 3 Initiative. The entire meeting can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/AlconaCountyRepublicans
I have Postcard Mailers to warn people of the DANGER of Proposition 3 (images below). The post cards are ingenious. Family, a friend, a fellow Michigander... the cost of a stamp. Send it and let them know Prop 3 is a deadly lie.
If you want any, please let me know and I'll make sure you get some. Or, you can stop off at our "headquarters" - 3650 South F-41, Mikado, MI 48745. I also have some yard signs available.
Any Questions, Want to Volunteer, Please Reach Out to Me,

Vote NO Proposals 2 and 3
Vote NO Proposals 2 and 3
Vote NO on both proposals for the November General Election. Vote NO to late term abortions (Reproduction Freedom Proposal = dismemberment abortions). Vote NO to elitists controlling our elections (Promote the Vote Proposal = no ID voting, allows illegals to vote, elites can buy elections). As usual, Democrats are great at branding lies.

Alcona County Board of Commissioners had the opportunity to Declare their support of Freedom, but it failed by a margin of 2 to 3.
Thank you to Carolyn Brummund and Dan Gauthier. William Thompson, Adam Brege and John Terry Small were the three commissioners who voted No. Such a shame.
"Our commissioners have failed to uphold their oaths... again. They can’t even proclaim to their own constituents that they will take the lead for right of conscience and freedom to choose what we put into our own bodies.
Only Brummond & Gauthier voted to support medical freedom." Jeff Dobbs, Vice Chair
We had an excellent meeting on the 22nd of March. The first video contains the Chair's opening speech about Realism and Optimism. The second video is the Precinct Delegate presentation for Alcona County. EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH THE PRECINCT DELEGATE. Let's fill those slots.
It was a good meeting. We had some good discussion. Key points:
1️⃣Go to your Township Meetings - https://alconacountymi.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/County-Directory-2019-WIP1.pdf
2️⃣Go to your Board of Commissioners Meetings - 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 1:30 pm - you'll find the Zoom link here: https://alconacountymi.com/?page_id=2202
3️⃣Get familiar with your local elected officials and the issues that are put before them. It's easier to get an ordinance passed when you have a rapport.
4️⃣Join Alcona County Bill of Rights - https://www.facebook.com/groups/512678289602346
5️⃣Sign up on Gab.com and join Alcona Constitutional Strong - https://gab.com/groups/25130

As you may know, we already passed a County-wide Resolution making Alcona County a Constitutional Second Amendment Sanctuary County. This ordinance is the next step to insuring our rights. Resolution #2020-15, passed October 21, 2020 (pictured below).
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.

Sheriff Scott Stephenson of Alcona County was at our July 22nd meeting.
We have stream-lined the meetings and Scott was introduced right after the invocation. So, be a bit early. Remember, we open at 6:30 pm, and the meeting starts at 7:00 pm.
We won Best Float at the Alcona County Fair. We also have Uniquely Designed Trump Signs at the Fair for a $10 Donation to help us get good conservative Republicans elected. http://alconacountyfair.com/

UPDATE: April 13, 2021 at Noon
MaryAnn has had a setback and is back on the ventilator. They're having a hard time clearing the gunk out of her lungs. Larry is with her now. He's had a lot to do (insurance, contractors, inspections, etc.). But by the grace of God, he's alive to do it.
Continued Prayers are much Appreciated!
The donations have been extremely helpful. The Brozowski Family is so grateful for the outpouring of support.
UPDATE April 4, 2021
While MaryAnn is doing better than she was yesterday, they have not been able to remove the tube and she remains sedated. They are still suctioning black "gunk" from her lungs. Larry is doing better, up and talking. His family will be bringing him a cell phone tonight. I'm sure he'll love being able to call out to family and friends.
Kim (a daughter) was in the house at the time too. She got out unscathed with her little dog. It's her car that's seen in the previous pictures burned into the pavement, and she lost everything too.
They did find Molly and were able to bury her. She was curled up on the bed. She's their dog who alerted Larry to the fire. Still no sign of Sammy, their Yorkie. The house isn't really safe to walk through all the way.
The GoFundMe is doing good and the Brozowski's would like to thank everyone. Also the ones who donated in person or sent in money. https://gofund.me/96c7d5a2

Tragedy has struck the ACR family.
One of my dearest friends lost everything in a fire this morning. Larry (our previous Chair, my mentor) and his wife, MaryAnn were taken to the burn center in Flint. MaryAnn is in critical condition and Larry is being treated for smoke inhalation (MaryAnn was asleep with her oxygen tank which apparently caught fire, but he was able to get her out).
Their two dogs (Sam and Molly) perished in the fire, as did their fish (it was such a cool setup with Angelfish, Tetras and Algae Eaters). I would go over and trim Molly and Sam's nails from time to time.
