This summer I went to the Democratic State convention here in Michigan. I got to meet and hear a lot of candidates and today, before the election, I wanted to highlight the ones who really stood out in my appraisal.
Nancy Skinner is a candidate for U.S. Congress (the House) in the 9th District of Michigan. In my notes I wrote "Amazing woman - watch her." Her web site is http://nancyskinner.mediarica.com/.
Jim Marcinkowski is a candidate for the U.S. Congress in Michigan's 8th District. http://www.vote-jim.com/
Tony Trupiano is a candidate for the U.S. Congress from Michigan's 11th district --People in Redfern, this is your man! -- Tony's a good speaker - he's worked in radio even - and dedicated to progressive democratic ideas. He's endorsed by Carl Levin, and now, by me. :) http://www.tony4congress2006.com/
I was also favorably impressed by the Attorney General Candidate we chose on the floor, Amos Williams, and of course I support Ann Arbor's candidate for Michigan state representative, Rebekah Warren.
Don't forget to Vote for Judges!
Judge Diane Hathaway came to speak to the convention. She's a good judge and a fine candidate for Michigan's Court of Appeals in the first district.
Attorney Jane Beckering, candidate for the Michigan Supreme Court, spoke to the convention as a whole and also to the Justice Caucus, which I attended. I was quite impressed by both her passion and her record. She is an articulate, intelligent speaker and we need someone like this, who respects the rule of law, in our Supreme Court. http://www.janebeckering.com/
We should also re-elect Supreme Court Justice Michael Cavenaugh.
Remember: Judges are not included if you vote for the party slate. Turn over the ballot and vote for judges!
