Pledge of Allegiance & Invocation Given

To start the meeting, we stood and said the Pledge of Allegiance, and an Invocation was given by Gary Wnuk.

Appointing Precinct Delegates

Six members of the community came forward at this meeting to become Precinct Delegates. You can find their names and townships below. Each one was nominated, accepted the nominated, and was approved unanimously by all present to become a Precinct Delegate within each respective township. They also took their Oath of Office after being appointed as Precinct Delegates. Congratulations everyone!

  • Jody Whipp – Caledonia Township
  • Jason Stodart – Caledonia Township
  • Joe VanDeweghe – Caledonia Township
  • Tim Pawloski – Hawes Township
  • Katherine Pawloski – Hawes Township
  • Judy French – Harrisville Township

RNC and the Log Cabin (LGBT) Coalition

The RNC did this move for vote, and for other reasons too. This was mentioned at the meeting to simply be put onto everyone's radar. Some feel that this alienates the Grassroots Republicans.

Endorsements Possibilities

We will be thinking about, discussing, and potentially endorsing candidates before the convention in April. Here are the candidates that are under consideration:

  • Attorney General:
    Matt DePerno vs Tom Leonard
  • Secretary of State:
    Kristina Karamo vs Beau LeFave
  • Governor:
    Ryan Kelley/Tudor Dixon vs James Craig

Should we choose to endorse any candidates, we will of course, send out notifications of such endorsements.

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump Dinner Announcement

The 2022 Lincoln-Reagan-Trump Dinner will be held in Alpena, jointly with the Alpena Republican Party, at the Aplex building. The date is April 2, 2022. Be on the lookout for more details!

Secure MI Vote.org Petitions Announcement

Carrie has gathered 20 petitions, and has received them from Steve Yoder. This is for working towards election integrity and security. Basically, there are a few points to this:

  1. Require partial social security number for voter registration
  2. Require photo ID for in-person voters
  3. Require Driver's License, State ID, Partial SSN or Photo ID on Absentee Ballot Applications
  4. Require voters who don't provide this ID to present ID in person within 6 days after election to have their vote counted
  5. Provide state-funded IDs to applicants with hardships
  6. Specify minimum times clerks must accept absentee ballots for in-person or dropbox delivery
  7. Prohibit officials from making absentee ballot applications available except upon voter request
  8. Prohibit donations to fund elections.

More than likely, this initiative will go to the ballot and have to be voted upon by the people of Michigan Go to www.SecureMIVote.org for more information.

Redistricting and Maps Announcement

Go to www.michigan.gov/micrc and check out the 9 proposed maps from the group (and some from individuals). “CD – Birch v2”, Sen. – Palm”, “Rep – Magnolia” are the most desired maps for the MRP. However, none of them are really “desirable”. You can see Gerrymandering happening with Midland, and Detroit, is of course, the worst of all.

But, go onto the website, look at the maps, place a pin, and then comment on the map that you want to. We recommend that you be negative about the individual spots, but positive on the map as a whole (in your comments). There will be 45 days of public commentary. After that period, 65 days until it's law.

Treasurer's Report & Minutes Report

Motion for these reports to be waived at this meeting by Jaynee. Seconded by Drew. All in favor unanimously, and so passed.

Reimbursement for Carrie Mullins for FFA Packets

Chris Wagener to write a check to Carrie Mullins for $170.91 that was used to mail the Full Forensic Audit packet to everyone in Lansing. Approved unanimously.

Resolution Opposing the National Popular Vote Compact

This resolution was included with the handouts at the meeting. Will include in the minutes as an addendum below. But basically, this resolution is to keep the Electoral College in place. This resolution was unanimously approved by the Executive Board members present.

Resolution for Party Unity through Transparent Vote Counting at April Endorsing Convention

One of the best things to ever happen if enough Republican Parties pass and enforce this. This resolution will be scanned and added as an addendum below. But the Executive Board unanimously voted upon and passed this resolution. Precinct Delegates who were present also unanimously voted on and passed this resolution.

Canvassing with the Tureks and/or SideKick App

Tureks FOIA'd (Freedom of Information Request) the list of voters, and it came in a huge excel file. Now they have it sorted out by Township, Road, and Street Address in numerical order. There are 241 pages to this excel file. The Tureks will hand this out to whomever wishes to help the canvassing effort. Basically you want to make sure there aren't any voters registered to vacant land/buildings, farm land, etc.

There is also the Campaign SideKick App, but there have been reports of it not working well with many phones. We recommend to do this the grassroots route, versus using the application. We also want to note that the app will pay you $0.25 per entry that you do within the application.

Vaccine Mandate Declaration Continued

The Alcona County Board of Commissioners failed our county yet again. They did not pass the “Declaration in Support of Vaccine Awareness and Medical Autonomy”. Jeff Dobbs and Bob Turek have been working together to try to get this thing passed. First as a resolution, and then after many failed attempts, as the declaration attached below. We hope in the future, to get something passed at the County level about this very important issue.

Good of the Order

These are comments by those in attendance:

  • Jim White wished everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
  • Bob Turek mentioned what they were trying to do with the Declaration, which is to not only protect our freedoms, but also to see exactly who would vote on it and how. (Especially since this was the 4th time trying to get something similar to this passed.) Carolyn Brummund talked to Lisa and said she thought someone else would have voted for this to pass. He feels that now it is time to shame the County Board of Commissioners who voted not to pass this each and every time. He hopes that Jeff will write a Letter to the Editor to thank the two who voted for his declaration. And after that, to write another one that shames the three who did not.
  • Richard Germond noted that Jaynee might run for School Board in Alcona County. He said we need to get the vote out for her and the other person running for the other open spot. We have to also be wary about splitting our vote. (Too many candidates running for only 2 positions.)
  • Gary Wnuk wanted to comment that he does not see any good coming out of the RNC with the Log Cabin coalition.
  • William Sickner wanted to add to the School Board discussion, and said that Jim Slavinski might be running for School Board as well, but is waiting until 2022 to announce.

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

  • Discussing Items From Winter Break
  • Planning LRT Dinner
  • Discussing April Endorsing Convention
  • Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Gary, seconded by Jaynee at 7:31pm. Next open meeting to be held on March 28, 2022 at 7pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center.

Virtual Conference Call with Matt DePerno, MI Attorney General Candidate

Some notes from this Conference Call with Matt DePerno:

  • Running for Attorney General for MI
  • He has been an attorney for about 23 years, constitutional law, in Kalamazoo
  • He has been after many state and federal agencies
  • Has experience litigating claims on constitutional grounds
  • Because of the Whitmer Administration, around May/June 2020, he started counseling clients that we're being shut down due to lock downs, etc. Helping them to know their rights and what not to fight against the lockdowns.
  • “Can you ever be above your creator?” The answer is no, and somehow government is now above us, the people, and works against the people. The lockdowns were an extension of that.
  • This all led to the November 3, 2020 election. Lawsuit in Antrim County, Bill Bailey, Joe Biden won about 65% in Antrim County. Many people didn't believe those results were accurate. County Clerk was ready to certify those results, because she/he believed what the machine put out to them.
  • Because of the lawsuit, they learned a lot about the system and the machines, etc. We continue to see a real overreach of government and erosion of rights.
  • Down ballot issues is what really concerned his client, Bailey. Especially school board races. Issues that concerned local people and communities.
  • He's amazed at how the Dems and Marxists were able to infiltrate the school boards. And how it all comes full circle to the election and the manipulation of votes in Antrim County.
  • Best way to attack a country would be to attack the school boards, and teach Marxist ideas in schools, etc. Which is what we're seeing now. Saw it play out in the Bailey case as well.
  • Elections have consequences. (Look at the Biden Administration.)
  • We need to eliminate electronic voting machines. Vulnerable, susceptible to fraud, security problems.
  • The reports that were put out by DePerno and team, was used in all kinds of other states, and was even used to help get the audits in AZ started.
  • Nessel was trying to say that she was going to criminally investigate anyone who is trying to do law work against the 2020 election. That was DePerno's last straw, and what led him to run for MI AG.
  • Gave a speech 3 weeks ago, and Rachel Maddow and Morning Joe, played clips from that speech, and they interviewed Dana Nessel, and she said she was terrified of the speech and was fearing for her own safety because of that.
  • His Platform is to:
    • Eliminate Mask Mandates
    • Eliminate Vaccine Mandates
    • Eliminate CRT
    • Eliminate Voter Fraud
    • Restore the State to a Constitutional Republic
    • No longer allow our state to be run by un-elected dictators
  • We saw that these issues are so big with the US populace, that it completely flipped Virginia on it's head.
  • He sees that Republicans are starting to wake up.
  • He's getting ready to file a lawsuit in Kalamazoo to eliminate the mask mandates in Kalamazoo. Kindergarten to 12th grade has to wear masks.
  • The legislative branch has given it's plenary authority to the Governor, who has further given it to un-elected County officials. (health department) This is unconstitutional.
  • Clean up the state and eliminate the corruption, across the state, regardless of party.
  • Our state is the most corrupt in the country. (big shock lol)
  • No transparency in Michigan, with how the government interacts with The People.
  • 3 republicans in Lansing, told him he's not the candidate for our party. He told them that the AG isn't there to protect a certain political party. (IE: Like Nessel does for the Democrats)
  • We get our rights from God, and the Constitution protects those rights. (his belief.)
  • Jim White Asked about this: The Constitution was amended in 2018, that any citizen has the right to audit any election, and should be construed in the way of the voter. The amendment also states that congress has the ability to enhance these rights, but shall not pass any law that diminishes these rights. The legislature passed an enabling statute that the SOS has the right to control all elections and offices. (Which limits the constitution) He's working with Jovan Pulitzer to appeal that statute. He hopes to get it completed by December 15, 2021, to get the required signatures to get it to be a citizens initiative (180 days before the election of 2022) Still looking at how to fund the audit? (Will this bill be veto proof? Will it go into a referendum.) Yes, once we get the bill introduced to the canvassing board, and they approve the language, the legislative has the chance to pass the bill, and Whitmer will not be able to veto it. If they don't take it up, then it's a citizen referendum and will be put to the ballot.
  • He doesn't necessarily like citizens referendums either because it does move us more towards a democracy, but that's what we're working with right now. Republican led legislature did not take up the initiatives (like marijuana stuff), instead they did nothing and the dems got the required signatures and, he doesn't feel that's how our republic should operate. But we do need to work within these parameters. (Gary Wnuk asked about this.)
  • He wants to get rid of these rules that allow for Mob Rule. (Referencing the point above.)
  • Carrie said, he was endorsed by Donald Trump. Tom Leonard is who the MIGOP wants. What strategies does he have to win this campaign? Matt DePerno's answers:
    • 1) Meeting with district chairs, and calling delegates across the state, to see if we have more delegates than the establishment for the convention next year. They look good with grassroots across the state right now.
    • 2) After the convention, he believes he's the best candidate to beat Dana Nessel. Election Integrity, Mandates, and CRT are the biggest issues, and that's what people really care about. The other two candidates say they've seen no election fraud at all. They've done nothing about the mandates at all. Tom Leonard admitted he's been in his basement the last two years (in a news story). The only thing they're pushing and talking about right now is the redistricting issue. They're not gonna be able to campaign on any of the three main issues that are on everyone's minds right now.
  • Drew Wagener: Lawmakers are not making laws. They're now Regulators. Like, OSHA is going to enforce the vaccine mandates. What are your thoughts? DePerno agrees, and has been pushing with the legislatures, under the 9th and 10th amendments have powers that are reserved to the states, and the people. Includes all issues relating to elections. Unfortunately, our legislature has not grasped or taken hold of all those powers they have. Over the years, they've given power to judicial and executive branches. He's deeply concerned by this. They seem to only want to focus on campaigning. We need to change that. He feels that the AG has a role in that, in how the AG will enforce regulations, mandates, and EO's. He wants to eliminate that. DoE, doesn't want to get rid of CRT, we can eliminate the Department of Education. The AG's office is supposed to be there to protect the people. But the AG's office is always representing the the agencies against the people.
  • Rich Germond, how would you have these people enforcing what they're supposed to? Trump had issues with the DoJ, so how will DePerno overcome that? He's gonna work with the different agencies who have been there forever through multiple admins, and these career assistant AG's are liaisons, and they need to be let go. (IE: Do we have the same problem like Blinken did when Afghanistan). He says we can fire them in Lansing. One of Trump's huge problems was he was blocked repeatedly by un-elected bureaucrats. We need to change this.
  • Drew: If you were AG today, given the Biden OSHA mandate that came down, what are the 3 steps you would take? Join the other republican AG's in fighting that mandate. (Got a favorable ruling in the 5th circuit last week.) Biden might issue an EO on shutting down Line 5. We have an AG who does nothing against Biden because she agrees with him.
  • Get all the delegates out in the spring! :)

Update on Mailing of Full Forensic Audit Packet

They were received. The response has been zip. Sue Allor said to Kris Anderson, she received several copies of it. Because some people forwarded their copies to her, thinking they were from her area, so must be for Sue. Maybe get them from Sue and see if she still has them, so we can get them to the “correct” people... again.

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump Dinner

GOP endorsement convention is in April of 2022. So Carrie is hoping to have the LRT Dinner beforehand, to allow the candidates a chance to speak before the convention. Potential date is Saturday, April 2, 2022. Motion made by Carrie, Seconded by Gary Wnuk, Discussion ensued: 5-6pm drinks and mingling, 6pm dinner, 7pm silent auction, speakers, etc., usually 8-830pm end time. Carrie might contact Alpena to (Kevin Osbourne, new county chair for Alpena) share with Alpena at the Aplex. Jeff & Jess to donate a 1 hour family session. Dessert Auctions for the LRT dinner? (Kevin likes the idea.) Motion passes unanimously for the date to be April 2, 2022, and to work with Alpena.

Discussion on Bylaws & Endorsements

Article 8, Section 4. Jeff thinks a stolen election would constitute an exceptional circumstance. One thing we're all upset about is the MIGOP trying to do endorsements. Do we want to endorse before the primary or not? Jeff does. We have time, and we want people to have a chance to vet the candidates. We should answer the MIGOP. Endorse them, but tell people why you are and where they stand. Maybe do an electronic questionnaire to the candidates with a phone call follow up. Rate them based on that perhaps?

November 22, 2021 Potluck Party Meeting

Jim has 3-5 candidates for precinct delegates will go to that meeting, he wants them sworn in first before everything else goes under way at the next meeting. Carrie is adding this to the agenda. Gary as Chairman of the Alcona County Grassroots Conservatives group, wants to advertise his Constitutional Class at Family Heritage Baptist Church on January 8 & 9, 2022. Carrie added that to the agenda as well.

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

  • Appointing Precinct Delegates
  • Constitutional Class Advertisement
  • FOOD! :D
  • Maybe some Non-Food Stuff :(
  • Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Gary, seconded by Greg at 11:33am. Next open meeting to be held on November 22, 2021 at 7pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center.

National Popular Vote Movement – HB5343

Today, October 25, Carrie received an email about this movement from the Michigan Republican Party.

They sent her a letter and a resolution that opposes this movement to share with everyone. This

movement will literally strip the voice of everyone in the states not named “New York, California, or

Texas.”

We need everyone to contact the Michigan Board of Canvassers at [email protected]

and tell them to vote NO!!!

Carrie read aloud the resolution that was included in the email.

Some more details from the last minutes about this issue:

  • There is currently a Bill introduced into the Michigan House of Representatives, by State Representative, Matt Koleszar [D] from the 20th District, which is to enter into the agreement among the States to elect the President of the US by National Popular Vote... versus by the Electoral College as it currently works. This is something we should all look into for ourselves, as it will be on the ballot in 2022, should the Bill itself, sit unaddressed within the Michigan Legislature.
  • Link to House Bill No. 5343: http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2021-2022/billintroduced/House/htm/2021-HIB-5343.htm
  • It is important also, to note that Nevada did not pass this, even with a Democrat Governor. On November 3, 2020, Colorado voters were the first State in the Country to vote on this initiative, and they voted for it.

Precinct Delegates

Carrie gave an overview of the spots that are still open.

Yes, this is Thanksgiving week. It will be the last meeting of 2021, and will also be a Potluck Party.

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump Dinner 2022

Dates will be finalized at the Core Team Meeting in November. Potential Dates to consider: May 14,

15, 21, 22 of 2022. We have some interest from candidates who wish to speak at this dinner already.

Good of the Order

  • Jaynee Germond – Update on Youth Groups
    • The kids are learning about the constitution, branches of government, etc. They're enjoying the material and it's encouraging to see them learning about how our government should work. Jaynee took a stand against masks, and is not following the mandate at the school. The Director called her and told her to be discreet. Jaynee told the children that the government has no right to tell them what to do with their bodies, but that their parents did. And if their parents told them to wear it, then to keep it on, otherwise they could remove their masks. The kids ripped the masks off right away.
  • Jeff Dobbs – Letter to MI GOP
    • At the last meeting, Jim brought up writing a letter to the 1st Congressional District, Jack Bergman, and the Michigan GOP, to oppose their blatant support for Chief James Craig for Governor. Jeff wrote this letter on Jim's behalf. Jeff read it aloud for those gathered to hear, and you can find it attached to the minutes below the Treasurer's Report. Some amendments need to be made to the letter, but it had overwhelming support from everyone gathered. Jaynee motioned to send the letter out after the amendments were made. Gary seconded this motion. We did a roll call vote, and it was unanimously approved.
  • Rich Germond – Local Canvassing
    • Rich recommended that everyone go home and think about people who would be fit to run for School Board and other important areas of our local government.
  • Linda Eberline – Quick Note
    • Remember to email about voting against the National Popular Vote movement!!!

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

  • FOOD! :D
  • Maybe some Non-Food Stuff :(
  • Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Carrie, seconded by Jim at 8:30pm. Next open meeting to be held on

November 22, 2021 at 7pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center.

LETTER TO MI GOP, JACK BERGMAN, & THE 1st CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

To whom it may concern,

This local group of Republicans from Alcona County Michigan have some important questions to ask of the MIGOP regarding the Establishment Party's broad support for a Gubernatorial candidate who is not for the people, not America First, and most importantly not Michigan First.


Why are you supporting James Craig for Governor of Michigan? Why are you choosing a "recently converted Democrat" above what We the People see as a much better choice for our conservative beliefs? 


Do you really want to support the candidate who stood lock step with Governor Whitmer and the Democrats as they knowingly obliterated our rights and freedom during the 300+ days of "15 Days to Slow the Spread"? Do you really wish for someone in office who sees his job as one that requires invasive surveillance of his constituents? Do you really wish to support a candidate for office who's police department knowingly prevented Republican Poll Watchers from doing their job on the night of (and days following) the election? James Craig is that man.


What real Republican voters see this as, is nothing more than trying to obtain a meager 15-25% of the Detroit Vote (from the MIGOP's own “internal polling” per Jason Roe)... all at the expense of sacrificing every single value that the real America & Michigan First Constitutional Conservatives believe in.


Here's a glowing record of just a few of Chief James Craig's recent “accomplishments” in Detroit...


Not only the above, but James Craig does not seem to want to stand with the people in our desire to facilitate of Full Forensic Audit of the 2020 General Election in Michigan. Weak platitudes that reflect the inadequate position of the MIGOP regarding election integrity is not enough.


We ask that you simply stand back. Outwardly supporting no candidate is a far better choice than supporting the wrong one.


Thank you.

The Meeting called to order by Carrie Mullins at the Chosen Ranch Community Center (CRCC) at

10:10am.

Present:

Carrie Mullins, Chairman

Jeffrey Dobbs, Vice Chairman

Jessica Dobbs, Secretary

Chris Wagener, Treasurer

Greg Anderson, Sergeant At Arms

Linda Eberline – Kalitta & Other Updates

Kalitta has imposed a Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate upon it's employees, to be fulfilled no later than

December 12, 2021. If you are not vaccinated by that date, you will be laid off without pay, and will be

unable to qualify for unemployment benefits.

Iosco Hospital has started to walk non-vaccinated employees off of their property in East Tawas.

Linda talked a little about a “Affidavit Process”, to combat these vaccine mandates issued by

employers. Basically, you make them sign an affidavit, that states that should any harm come to you for

being forced to choose between your job or the vaccine, the company and the direct person (HR

Director) would then be held liable for that harm. For more information about this process, please

contact Linda Eberline.

She also commented that there are protests being planned and underway in Iosco County.

Geyer Balog – Candidate for 106 th District Representative

Our current Representative, Sue Allor, is at her Term Limit, and so, Geyer Balog is running to replace

her when her term ends. He is currently the Montmorency County Republican Chairperson. He is also a

Montmorency County Commissioner. He stands for Vaccine/Medical Freedom, Election Integrity, 2A,

etc. He is also advocating for Grant Reform, especially at the County level. He's for having more power

to the County level, versus the State level, so County Commissioners can battle anything handed down

to them from the State, should they need to do so. He is homeschooled, and he is only 22 years old. It

was great hearing from him, hearing about his ideas, and learning more about his cause.

Redistricting Update – Carrie Mullins

Alcona and Alpena are under the 106th District, and that district might gain Montmorency and

Cheboygan Counties.

National Popular Vote Movement – HB5343

There is currently a Bill introduced into the Michigan House of Representatives, by State

Representative, Matt Koleszar [D] from the 20th District, which is to enter into the agreement among

the States to elect the President of the US by National Popular Vote... versus by the Electoral College as

it currently works. This is something we should all look into for ourselves, as it will be on the ballot in

2022, should the Bill itself, sit unaddressed within the Michigan Legislature.

Link to House Bill No. 5343: 

http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2021-2022/billintroduced/House/htm/2021-HIB-5343.htm

It is important also, to note that Nevada did not pass this, even with a Democrat Governor. On

November 3, 2020, Colorado voters were the first State in the Country to vote on this initiative, and

they voted for it.

Resolutions & Censure Packet

Carrie has completed the packet. She has a custom cover letter for both the Democratic Party and the

Republican Party. She plans to mail them out by the end of next week. She's going to start stuffing the

envelopes and do other preparatory steps imminently. She's also going to email it to all of the State

District Chairpersons, as well as to all of the County Chairpersons.

Call to Special Convention

Call to Special Convention will include officially voting into office the Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer,

Deputy Treasurer, Event Planner, Trustee, and other open positions. This convention is to take place at

the October 25, 2021 public meeting. Carrie will send out more information via email.

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

  • Update: Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2022 Dinner (Need a Date Planned Now, May?)
  • Final Update on Packet to be Sent to Lansing, etc.
  • Special Election – County Convention
    • Vice Chair

Mackinaw Leadership Republican Conference Update – Carrie Mullins

Carrie attended the Mackinaw Leadership Republican Conference of 2021. She said there was a lot of

good speakers. Meshawn Maddock spoke and said that for anyone who is running for School Board

positions will receive a donation to their campaign from her. Carrie learned about Woke-ism at this

conference and some points were made. Such as, the Left's view on Afghanistan, economy inflation,

etc. She also learned some tips on how to defeat the left in this next election cycle. They recommended

to attendees that we should focus on defeating the left, while leaving those on the right alone for now.

They said that those who support Trump and his message, are more likely to be voted into office. And

of course, it's best to campaign early for your positions. They also mentioned a curious fact... Did you

know that ever since the pandemic started, standardized testing for students in schools has almost

completely vanished? The reason for this is because they don't people/parents to know just how bad the

lock-downs and forced masked and forced virtual learning has stunted the growth of children. Sean

Spicer was there and signed books for everyone. And Kristie Noem was there, and Carrie said her

speech was amazing. So much so that Carrie will place the video of Kristie Noem's speech online for

everyone to be able to watch as well.

Full Forensic Audit Packet to Michigan Legislators

We are presenting a packet intended to be sent to a majority of the State of Michigan's governmental

workers, and so we went over everything in it's entirety, and these are the following notes upon this

    • • William suggested a change to the second paragraph to say the following: “If free and fair
      elections are the stated objective of the MRP, MDP, Legislators and the Executive Branch,
      then the patent reticence to support the most succinct means of providing incontrovertible
      transparency on this topic is intolerable.”

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner

Canceled for 2021, as it would put us over our $1000 waiver. So, we are moving it to next year (2022).

Special Election – County Convention

Carrie is calling a Special Election, or County Convention, for the following positions: Secretary, Vice

Chair, and Treasurer. Anyone who is interested in these positions should expect to receive more

information about how to run in an upcoming email from Carrie.

Bob Turek – New Censure Discussion

Based on Addendum 6, and he wanted to know why it's not geared towards our individual senator and

representative? He also wondered how the group felt about the County Commissioners, should they not vote on the Resolution for Medical Autonomy for a third time, especially if a majority of the Townships vote for it? Should there be a set course of action in this case? Would censure apply to them? Carrie mentioned that she is worried Censure may become overused, but isn't saying she wouldn't support it.

Public Comments

Jim White wants to write a letter to be sent from the Alcona Republican Party to the 1st Congressional

District, Jack Bergman, and the MI GOP, to tell them how disgusted we are with them trying to force

James Craig as the defacto nominee for the Governor 2022 race. Jeff volunteered to work with Jim to

write this up. Jim also wanted to remind everyone about the “Audit Michigan Rally” on October 9th

between 1-4pm in Alpena at the Aplex. Speaking at that rally will be Matt DePerno, Patrick Colebeck,

and Mike Detmer. Jess has been tasked to place this rally information onto the website.

Lisa Turek also had some comments. She mentioned that she FOIA'd the voter rolls from the County,

and they do not have them... So, she is now trying to ascertain if the Townships have them instead.

Once she obtains the voter rolls, she wishes to start a canvassing effort. She also mentioned that two

parents have filed lawsuits against the Alcona County School Board for their mask mandates on the

student body.

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

– Update: Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2022 Dinner (Need a Date Planned Now)

– Update on Packet to be Sent to Lansing, etc.

– Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup Update

– Special Election – County Convention Update

– Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Greg, seconded by Kris at 9:20pm. Next open meeting to be held on

October 25, 2021 at 7pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center.

Packet to Legislators

We are presenting a packet intended to be sent to a majority of the State of Michigan's governmental

workers, and so we went over everything in it's entirety, and these are the following notes upon this

subject. This will be long, and I'll (Jessica) do my best to make them as concise as possible.

  • ● Opening Letter/Cover Letter (from Carrie Mullins)
    • • Talks about the items to be covered in the packet.
    • • It is a personal letter from Carrie.
    • • It covers some details from each Addendum 1-5 (with a 6th potential addendum added)
    • • 6th Addendum will be added, and needs to be reflected in this cover letter/opening letter
    • • Perhaps add a “D” next to Detroit Mayor Duggan's name, to represent the fact that he is a
      Democrat
    • • Will have to send this packet as a certified piece of mail (or restricted mail even) to the
      Governor, Attorney General, and Secretary of State.
  • ● General Notes
    • • These will be from all of us at Alcona County Republicans
    • • Carrie took what Jeff had written and edited it a little bit for one of the resolutions here.
    • • Signatures will come into play for these addendums
    • • In order to save a lot of money on stamps, we are hoping to take a trip to Lansing to hand
      deliver these packets
    • • Hardest part will be to get everyone's signatures onto the original packet. (Before signed
      copies are made to distribute.) Might do a “baton pass” type of signing thing.
    • • This packet will also be sent to the Board of Commissioners for Alcona County. (Not
      against them, but to keep them apprised of our actions.)
    • • A Press Release will be paid for to announce this packet.
    • • We all hope to have the packet finalized and ready to send/deliver by the end of this month
      (September).
  • ● Addendum 1
    • • Read aloud to those who attended the meeting by Carrie.
    • • This demands a Full Forensic Audit of the Michigan Democratic Party, Michigan
      Republican Party, and all the legislators of the House of Representatives and the Senate, as
      well as, the Governor, the Secretary of State, and the Attorney General of Michigan.
    • • Carrie will rewrite the wording in paragraph 4, to include a reference to addendum 3.
    • • Carrie would like to add “Jocelyn Benson” to the 6th paragraph to this. (“Yet, you want the
      people of Michigan to simple be quiet and accept the word of a few Senators with no
      relevant expertise, over those of actual experts?”) We would insert her into the “the word of
      a few Senators & Jocelyn Benson”.
    • • Add Benson to the list, with a D by her name. Put down she graduated from Magdalen
      College in Oxford, UK, with a degree into Sociology. She also graduated from Harvard,
      before moving to Detroit to become a law clerk. Wording for this will need to be refined.
    • • Page 2, paragraph 1, add “nor is Benson” at the end of it.
    • • Page 2, paragraph 4, add the full section (from Dr. Turek) to this part. (The addendum,
      passed in 2018, proposal 3)
    • • Page 2, paragraph 9, add executive branch to “we call for the MRP, MDP,...”
    • • Page 3, paragraph 1, change “24 pages” to “the following attached pages”
  • ● Addendum 2
    • • page 2, paragraph 2, “read the following report”
    • • page 2, paragraph 2, change “didn't” to “did not”
  • ● Addendum 3
    • • Some minor syntax changes (comma's at the end of the “WHEREAS” statements)
    • • “prescribed by law” will be bolded and underlined
    • • 5th whereas, the wording has to be the same as the copy that people have signed.
    • • Adding “per the report” after “clear weaknesses in our election system” in the second
      “therefore” clause.
    • • Conclusion: first paragraph, “that need solved” to be changed to “needs solving” or
      something similar. (which require remedy)
    • • Second paragraph of conclusion, add “when there were so many Problems?”, after Benson's
      quote.
    • • Third paragraph, change the first “conducted” to “performed”.
    • • Third paragraph, change “up and up” to “either legitimate or accurate”.
    • • Third paragraph, change “hereon” to “from this time forward”
    • • Last line of conclusion, capitalize and bold “not” in “we will not go away”, and also change
      the period of that statement to an exclamation point.
  • ● Addendum 4 (Censure Resolution)
    • • Carrie motions to re-accept Addendum 4 because Kathy resigned as Treasurer, and Chris
      Wagener is appointed to the position of Treasurer until a Special Election can be held. (See

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner

We're hoping that Greg can see if we can rent out the Masonic Lodge to host this dinner. Carrie really

wants the “Swiss Steak Dinner” from there if we can rent it out. Other options for venues are welcome

to recommended to Carrie.

Harrisville Labor Day Parade

The Harrisville Labor Day Parade is this Sunday at 1pm. Line up for the parade on 6th St. at 12pm

(noon). Carrie will have candies and other grab-bags to give away to the parade-goers.

Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup

Our portion of the M-65 Highway is due for another cleanup activity from Alcona Republicans! At the

next meeting we will discuss the day and time that we'll plan to gather and make our part of M-65

gorgeous. The dates under consideration are from September 25th – October 3rd. The stretch is a 2 mile

stretch near McCullum and Buck roads. (It's a total of 4 miles to clean up. 2 miles on either side.)

New Treasurer

Unfortunately, our Treasurer, Kathy McLean, has to resign from her position. Her husband is worse off

than she thought, and requires more of her time and care, which leaves her little to no time to be our

Treasurer. As such, the position of Treasurer is open.

Carrie Mullins nominated Chris Wagener to become the next Treasurer. Chris Wagener accepts this

nomination. Kristina Anderson motions to vote Chris into the position of Treasurer. Jeffrey Dobbs

seconds this motion. A roll call vote was held.

  • • Carrie Mullins – Yes
  • • Jeffrey Dobbs – Yes
  • • Jessica Dobbs – Yes
  • • Greg Anderson – Yes
  • • Kris Anderson – Yes
  • • William Sickner – Abstain
  • • Larry Brozowski – Absent
  • • Jaynee Germond – Absent
  • • Molly Adkins – Absent

The motion passes, and therefore, Chris Wagener is our new Treasurer. Congratulations!

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

  • – Update: Harrisville Labor Day Parade
  • – Update & Vote on Packet to be Sent to Lansing, etc.
  • – Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup
  • – Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner
  • – Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Carrie, seconded by Jess at 12:43pm. Next core team meeting to be held

on September 7, 2021 at 1pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center. Next open meeting to be held

Aug. 23, 2021 Monthly Meeting

4th Monday of the Month

Alcona County Republicans

Meeting Minutes

August 23, 2021

Opening:

The Meeting called to order by Carrie Mullins at the Chosen Ranch Community Center (CRCC) at

7:07pm.

Present:

Carrie Mullins, Chairman

Jeffrey Dobbs, Vice Chairman

Jessica Dobbs, Secretary

Greg Anderson, Sergeant At Arms

Kris Anderson, Trustee

Jaynee Germond, Trustee

William Sickner, Trustee

Absent:

Kathy McLean, Treasurer

Larry Brozowski, Trustee

Guest Speaker:

Ryan D. Kelley, Candidate for Governor ( www.ryandkelley.com )

Ryan spoke for about an hour and a half. He finished at 8:32pm.

Business:

Full Forensic Audit Resolution

We are presenting a letter demanding a Full Forensic Audit to the Michigan Democratic Party,

Michigan Republican Party, all legislators in the House of Representatives and Senate, as well as the

Governor, Attorney General, and Secretary of State. This letter is to officially advocate and demand a

Full Forensic Audit of the 2020 General Election in the State of Michigan. We feel that Benson has not

done any audit as defined by her office. We have a grassroots petition that was available to sign at the

Alcona County Fair, that will also be included in this letter.

Alcona County Fair Report

The fair this year was rather slow, because the company who was to provide rides for fair-goers to

enjoy, backed out of their job, two days before the fair was to take place. However, our booth was

present at the fair, and it seems those who attended, enjoyed their time there to talk to people who are

interested in what we are up to and all about. We also had some new members join our party because of

the fair. Both of our silent auctions sold as well. Congratulations to those who won the auctions!

Censure of McBroom, Theis, and Bizon

It was discussed about censuring McBroom, Theis, and Bizon, for violating their oaths of office for

authoring a report that included the following statement: “The Committee recommends the attorney

general consider investigating those who have been utilizing misleading and false information about

Antrim County to raise money or publicity for their own ends.” This statement in their report goes

against the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. They are asserting that anyone who

disagrees with their assessment of the 2020 General Election, should be investigated by the Attorney

General. In doing so, they have weaponized the State against Citizens who disagree with them.

Jaynee Germond motioned to approve this Censure letter. Jessica Dobbs seconded the motion. The vote

was done by a roll call. It stands as such:

  • Carrie Mullins – Yes
  • Jeffrey Dobbs – Yes
  • Jessica Dobbs – Yes
  • Kathy McLean – Absent
  • Greg Anderson – Yes
  • Lawrence (Larry) Brozowski – Absent
  • Jaynee Germond – Yes
  • William Sickner – Yes
  • Molly Adkins – Absent
  • Kristina Anderson – Yes

The motion is tabled as of now until the three absent members can vote on this issue. Should this

motion pass, Precinct Delegates will be emailed a copy of this letter, so they can add their names to it

as well, should they wish to do so.

Treasurer's Report

Carrie will transfer the money needed for the domain name of the website for the Alcona County

Republicans to stay active and registered to our party. (Treasurer was absent today, so no report other

than that, at this time.)

Board of Canvassers Recommendations

Jessica Dobbs, Drew Wagener, and Jaynee Germond all volunteered to be recommended for the Board

of Canvassers. Carrie will submit these names to the County Clerk.

Redistricting Update

Livingston County might be split up into 3 parts. Redistricting meetings are open to the public, and the

next meeting will be held on September 9, 2021 at 3pm. It will be held in the same room that the Board

of Commissioners meetings are held. The new software that they're trying to use for the redistricting

efforts, are straight from Jocelyn Benson's office.

Kristina Anderson as Trustee

There was a hiccup at the last meeting. We thought we went through the official process to have Kris

become a Trustee, but we messed up and somehow overlooked that. Whoops! So, tonight we took a roll

call vote to make her a Trustee. The motion was called by Greg, and seconded by Jeff. The vote went as

follows:

  • Carrie Mullins – Yes
  • Jessica Dobbs – Yes
  • Jeffrey Dobbs – Yes
  • Greg Anderson – Yes
  • William Sickner – No
  • Jaynee Germond – Absent
  • Molly Adkins – Absent
  • Lawrence (Larry) Brozowski – Absent
  • Kathy McLean – Absent

The motion was passed, and Kristina Anderson is officially a Trustee. Congratulations!

Harrisville Labor Day Parade

The Harrisville Labor Day Parade is coming up this Sunday, and we plan to attend! It will be held on

September 5, 2021, and lining up starts at 12pm on 6th Street. We plan to have a float in this parade.

The parade itself will begin at 1pm. If you would like to join us in the parade, please contact Carrie

Mullins.

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner

Jessica Dobbs motions to have the Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner on October 2nd, 2021. Kristina

Anderson seconds this motion. Those still in attendance to the meeting (William, Jess, Jeff, Greg, Kris,

and Carrie) all voted yes, and the motion passed. More details to follow.

Grand Traverse County Resolution

Grand Traverse County passed a resolution for medical freedom. Dr Turek and his wife will be

presenting the same resolution to the Board of Commissioners on September 1, 2021. Alcona County

Grassroots Conservatives will be presenting a similar resolution that piggybacks off of this one.

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

  • – Update: Harrisville Labor Day Parade
  • – Update & Vote on Letter by Jeffrey Dobbs for Election Audit
  • – Alcona County Fair Staffing
  • – Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner
  • – Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Carrie, seconded by Jeff at 9:28pm. Next core team meeting to be held on
