Living our values

I'm a proud member of the Lenawee County Democratic Party (Facebook Page). Joining a group of like minded community members dedicated to helping people and to serving our community has really been fun and rewarding. Not too long ago, the Lenawee County Democratic Party petitioned to adopt a section of U.S. 223, south of Onsted between the City of Adrian and Manitou Beach-Devils Lake.

Michigan's Adopt-a-Highway program provides organizations an opportunity to serve and beautify their communities while relieving the state budget from providing for those services. I had a great time this Sunday sweating and swearing with my fellow Lenawee County Democratic Party members as we cleaned up plastic bags, exploded foam coolers, bottles, cans, fast food cups, paper bags, cigarette butts, wrappers, parts of steel-belted tires, lug nut covers, a large plastic sign, and, finally, some curious and important looking automotive related parts.

This was the most painful squat in my life
Living our values is a big part of the Lenawee County Democratic Party. Whether it's cleaning up the environment, like we did this past Sunday, helping to provide a hot meal to our homeless neighbors, like we do at Share the Warmth the first Thursday of every month, or working and protesting for justice and equality; our members are working hard to make Lenawee County a better place to live for everyone.

We'd like you to think about joining us. We'd like you to join us as we work to serve our community. We'd like you to join us as we work to fight for expanded representation of  progressive values in county, state, and national government. You can make a difference and push back against the conservative Republican assault on our Republic's aspirational foundational principles. Join the Michigan Democratic Party, today, and get in the fight!

Victory in our candidate's electoral efforts, such as my race for County Commissioner, will help bring a much needed progressive perspective to county, state and national government. However, I simply can't do it without your help. I'm asking for donations of time, energy, effort, and/or money. If you are interested in helping me win this November shoot me an email and join the team.

Forward! Together!
