Fellow concerned citizens, pay attention to what is happening in the legislature this month. Republicans are attempting to nullify the results of the midterm election by passing many bills that will damage our recently passed voter rights proposals as well as using the lame duck session to dismantle the minimum wage bill they passed prior to the election. They are also, once again, going after public employee union benefits and are seeking to take power away from the newly elected Attorney General and Secretary of State and transfer it to the Republican controlled legislature.
You can help stop this by contacting your state legislators and the governor and advise them to vote down or veto these sneaky attacks on the election results.
Contact the governor at: 517-373-3400
If you live in Roscommon County contact Sen. Darwin Booher at: 517-373-1725
Sadly, I would like to inform visitors to this site that longtime Roscommon County Democratic Party Chair Dorothy Sunman has died. Dorothy was the chair of the county party for many years and provided much assistance to those who ran for office in the county. She was well versed in the operation of local and state Democratic Party affairs and provided positive leadership to those of us who are active in the party organization. She recently gave up her position as a result of the death of her husband. Her guidance and friendship will be missed.
