See Convention Documents at the Bottom of this Post

The purpose of this meeting shall be to elect Delegates and Alternates to the August 23, 2014 State Convention to be held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in the City of Novi. The purpose of the State Convention is the nomination of one (1) Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, three (3) Justices to the Michigan Supreme Court, two (2) members of the State Board of Education, and two (2) members each for the Wayne State Board of  Governors, the Michigan State University Board of Trustees, and the University of Michigan Board of Regents.

Precinct delegates and certain at-large delegates given the preference under Rule 8 of the Convention Rules, but who do not attend the county convention, must notify the Chair of the County Executive Committee, Robert Montilla, in writing (the “Notification”) of the person’s intention to become a delegate or alternate delegate to the state convention. The notification can be in any written form, including by letter or email, and must be received by the Chair of the County Executive Committee by no later than the start of the County Convention. Failure to provide the notification as provided herein shall mean that the person shall not be given the preference under Rule 8 of the Convention Rules. It is not necessary to send a notification if a person attends the County Convention.

Notice can be provided by:

    • filling out and returning the enclosed postcard
    • sending a written letter to Macomb County Republican Party,

    • sending an email to mcrpconvention@gmail.com

Per Rule 8A of the Convention Rules, an Apportionment Method of Electing State Convention Delegates and Alternates will be used.  With this method, each city, township or grouping thereof in Macomb County shall be apportioned delegates to the State Convention.  The delegates to County Convention from each city, township or grouping thereof, as the case may be, shall choose the delegates and alternates to the State Convention that have been apportioned to such city, township or grouping thereof.  All apportionments are based on the 2012 Presidential vote for the Republican candidate for the President of the United States — Mitt Romney (see reverse side for details of apportionment for the Macomb County Convention).

ONLY precinct delegates duly-elected at the August 5, 2014 Primary Election and the Republican nominees for State Legislative and County office shall be allowed to vote on matters as may properly come before the County Convention (in addition to Republican incumbent members of the State Legislature and the Michigan Congressional delegation, Statewide Officeholders, the Republican National Committeeman and National Committeewoman from Michigan, and Michigan Republican Party officers where such person resides).  Unsuccessful candidates for state legislative office, county office and precinct delegate are also encouraged to attend the County Convention as guests.

Signed,

Robert Montilla
Chairman, Macomb County Republican Executive Committee

The Macomb County Republican Party adopted a resolution against the Public Transportation Millage that will be on the August 5 primary ballot.  Revenues of the millage will go to the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation (SMART) to further fund its operations.

Reasons for the MCRP position include:

  • The millage is both a renewal (.59 mills) and an increase (.41 mills) packaged into one ballot initiative.  That’s a 69% increase!
  • Voters are not able to vote on the renewal and the increase separately
  • The millage was put on the August ballot when it is known voter turnout will be lower
  • It is unclear how the additional money will be used
  • The millage runs through 2017 but the General Manager of SMART admitted this increase will not fix SMART’s problems.  That means another tax increase in the future
  • A study to find more cost effective ways to provide this transportation service has not been conducted
