The Macomb County Republican Party Executive Committee will meet on MONDAY June 8th at 7:00 pm at the Macomb Victory Center located at 13441 Hall Rd in Utica, MI (between Buy Buy Baby and Long Tall Sally).
Congratulations to New Republican National Committeewoman Kathleen Berden
BOYNE FALLS, Mich., May 9, 2015 – The Michigan Republican State Committee today elected Kathleen Berden as Republican National Committeewoman, one of the state’s representatives to the Republican National Committee. In response, Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel issued the following statement:
“Congratulations to Kathleen Berden on her election as our new Republican National Committeewoman. She will be an outstanding representative for Michigan Republicans. Having held this position in the past, I know Kathleen’s communication skills, work ethic and dedication to conservative principles will be an asset to our Michigan Republican team.”
Newly elected Republican National Committeewoman Kathleen Berden issued the following statement:
“I am honored to be elected the Republican National Committeewoman from Michigan. I look forward to meeting with activists across the state and working with candidates and volunteers to build our party and turn Michigan red in 2016.”
Ms. Berden filled the vacancy caused by Ronna Romney McDaniel’s election as Michigan Republican Party Chair this February.
Hundreds of activists gathered at Boyne Mountain Resort May 8-9 to begin plans to win elections in the upcoming election cycle. Republican activists gathered from across the state to hear from some our nation’s top campaign strategists about the upcoming election cycles. State Committee members laid the groundwork for upcoming elections and looked forward to hearing from several presidential primary contenders.
– Last week, Michigan had three Presidential candidates—Dr. Ben Carson, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, and Gov. Scott Walker—visit Republican voters in the state. Next week, Carly Fiorina will also visit Michigan.
Gov. Rick Snyder issued the following statement after Proposal 1 failed to garner a majority of votes on Tuesday:
“It’s essential that making Michigan’s infrastructure safer remains a top priority. While voters didn’t support this particular proposal, we know they want action taken to maintain and improve our roads and bridges.
The ‘relentless’ part of relentless positive action means that we start anew to find a comprehensive, long-term solution to this problem. Doing nothing isn’t an option as the costs are too great. Michiganders need to be able to get behind the wheel and not worry about dodging potholes or seeing plywood to catch crumbling concrete under overpasses.
We appreciate that this bipartisan plan was supported by so many groups – business leaders and unions, public safety officials and local governments, teachers, and the list goes on. I plan to work with my partners in the Legislature on a solution that gives Michigan residents the safe roads they need and deserve and bolsters our growing economy.”
The Macomb County Republican Party does NOT support Proposal 15-1 (Prop 1) and we encourage all voters to get out to their precincts on May 5th to deliver a resounding defeat to this massive tax increase.
Since passing the above resolution against Prop 1, we have seen confirmation of the same sentiment from a very large group of elected Michigan Republicans and Republican groups as well as TEA Party and other grassroots organizations.
