(Future) Senator Butler comes to Livingston County
I just got back from the TAR's meet the candidate's night in Oceola Twp between Howell and Hartland. The featured speaker is our next senator - Keith Butler. We had a good turnout of about 100 people - especially since there was NO media coverage whatsoever beforehand. WHMI and the Detroit News did show up there. I'll update this post when the reports are in.
Keith Butler is an excellent speaker. You can hear Butler's announcement tour speech at his website. What also impressed me is that unlike most federal candidates, he opened the floor for questions and answered all of the in an straightforward matter without the usual "politaspeak". He'll be a great senator and has my vote.
Kudo's to the Livingston County Teenage Republicans(TAR's) for putting on this great event, and a Thank You to the Life Christian Church for hosting this event for us.
(Edit 2/25 - this was before I met Jerry Zandstra who I currently endorse. While I still think highly of Butler, Jerry's economic policy is what is needed in Washington)
