MaryAnn is still not out of the woods she has pneumonia now. They had extubated her, but she was unable to keep up so they had to sedate and reintubate to keep her oxygen stats up. And she's on heavy antibiotics. Larry was released from the hospital and is "home." He's staying with their son, Mike in the original house on the property that they've been fixing up over the past few years.
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.
Also, we talked about becoming a Precinct Delegate - Come to our March 22nd meeting at 7:00 PM at the Chosen Ranch Community Center to find out more. We will be appointing PD's at that time. -->>>

-- Alcona Bill of Rights Group --
We will be presenting and discussing an Ordinance that will allow our County Law Enforcement to protect the citizen's God given rights.
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).
We are not enforcers - When at the CRCC wear a mask and social distance as you see fit.
The ACR will continue to have our meetings on the 4th Monday of the Month, IN PERSON and via CONFERENCE CALL.
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.

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.

The Alcona County Republicans are devoted to educating the public through civil discourse and we support Trump. We are for the Constitution, limited government, and freedom.
This video shows why they want you to hate Trump so much. Are you paying attention? It's been removed from several social media platforms.
