From the Chair:
Get Engaged, Get Involved!!
With the announcement of Tom “Covid” Barrett as a candidate for the yet completed new congressional district covering Eaton County the 2022 election cycle has begun. This is a congressional seat that we, the Democrats, can win. We must start now to appeal to all Democrats in Eaton County as well as independents, that this candidate is not the candidate of the people. Instead of getting to work helping Michigan families, he’s been more focused on ideological issues that do nothing for the middle class.
During his time in the legislature, he voted to ban local minimum wage increases, against prevailing wage requirements that protect Michigan workers by ensuring they are paid fairly and in favor of a gas tax that hits Michigan families amidst record-breaking inflation. He has also engaged with the voter fraud lies as he accompanied the Republican group that visited the former President, upon his request, and sipped on $500 bottles of champagne.
What’s more, his campaign announcement focuses almost entirely on vaccine mandates — not the everyday pocketbook issues that keep Michiganders awake at night.
The proposed State Senate redistricting which is a major change of the current gerrymandered district is also a seat that can be won by a Democrat! More information to come on the potential Democratic candidate for this seat. As far as the State House, the Republican candidate that lost in the last election has also announced that she will run again. The proposed redistricting for the State House will divide Eaton County from 2 districts to 4 and it will be interesting what the final map will look like.
We need your help to help fill positions and committees today if we are to be successful!
