Mackinaw Leadership Republican Conference Update – Carrie Mullins

Carrie attended the Mackinaw Leadership Republican Conference of 2021. She said there was a lot of

good speakers. Meshawn Maddock spoke and said that for anyone who is running for School Board

positions will receive a donation to their campaign from her. Carrie learned about Woke-ism at this

conference and some points were made. Such as, the Left's view on Afghanistan, economy inflation,

etc. She also learned some tips on how to defeat the left in this next election cycle. They recommended

to attendees that we should focus on defeating the left, while leaving those on the right alone for now.

They said that those who support Trump and his message, are more likely to be voted into office. And

of course, it's best to campaign early for your positions. They also mentioned a curious fact... Did you

know that ever since the pandemic started, standardized testing for students in schools has almost

completely vanished? The reason for this is because they don't people/parents to know just how bad the

lock-downs and forced masked and forced virtual learning has stunted the growth of children. Sean

Spicer was there and signed books for everyone. And Kristie Noem was there, and Carrie said her

speech was amazing. So much so that Carrie will place the video of Kristie Noem's speech online for

everyone to be able to watch as well.

Full Forensic Audit Packet to Michigan Legislators

We are presenting a packet intended to be sent to a majority of the State of Michigan's governmental

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner

Canceled for 2021, as it would put us over our $1000 waiver. So, we are moving it to next year (2022).

There is a County Convention and State Convention in April. So probably looking at May 14th or May

21st (those weekends) for the LRT Dinner. Carrie and Jeff will start calling around for speakers to

attend.

To be held on September 30, 2021 at 10am. Meet at Bugg Road and M-65 ready to clean!

Special Election – County Convention

Carrie is calling a Special Election, or County Convention, for the following positions: Secretary, Vice

Chair, and Treasurer. Anyone who is interested in these positions should expect to receive more

information about how to run in an upcoming email from Carrie.

Bob Turek – New Censure Discussion

Based on Addendum 6, and he wanted to know why it's not geared towards our individual senator and

representative? He also wondered how the group felt about the County Commissioners, should they not vote on the Resolution for Medical Autonomy for a third time, especially if a majority of the Townships vote for it? Should there be a set course of action in this case? Would censure apply to them? Carrie mentioned that she is worried Censure may become overused, but isn't saying she wouldn't support it.

Public Comments

Jim White wants to write a letter to be sent from the Alcona Republican Party to the 1st Congressional

District, Jack Bergman, and the MI GOP, to tell them how disgusted we are with them trying to force

James Craig as the defacto nominee for the Governor 2022 race. Jeff volunteered to work with Jim to

write this up. Jim also wanted to remind everyone about the “Audit Michigan Rally” on October 9th

between 1-4pm in Alpena at the Aplex. Speaking at that rally will be Matt DePerno, Patrick Colebeck,

and Mike Detmer. Jess has been tasked to place this rally information onto the website.

Lisa Turek also had some comments. She mentioned that she FOIA'd the voter rolls from the County,

and they do not have them... So, she is now trying to ascertain if the Townships have them instead.

Once she obtains the voter rolls, she wishes to start a canvassing effort. She also mentioned that two

parents have filed lawsuits against the Alcona County School Board for their mask mandates on the

student body.

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

– Update: Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2022 Dinner (Need a Date Planned Now)

– Update on Packet to be Sent to Lansing, etc.

– Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup Update

– Special Election – County Convention Update

– Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Greg, seconded by Kris at 9:20pm. Next open meeting to be held on

October 25, 2021 at 7pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center.

Packet to Legislators

We are presenting a packet intended to be sent to a majority of the State of Michigan's governmental

workers, and so we went over everything in it's entirety, and these are the following notes upon this

subject. This will be long, and I'll (Jessica) do my best to make them as concise as possible.

  • ● Opening Letter/Cover Letter (from Carrie Mullins)
    • • Talks about the items to be covered in the packet.
    • • It is a personal letter from Carrie.
    • • It covers some details from each Addendum 1-5 (with a 6th potential addendum added)
    • • 6th Addendum will be added, and needs to be reflected in this cover letter/opening letter
    • • Perhaps add a “D” next to Detroit Mayor Duggan's name, to represent the fact that he is a
      Democrat
    • • Will have to send this packet as a certified piece of mail (or restricted mail even) to the
      Governor, Attorney General, and Secretary of State.
  • ● General Notes
    • • These will be from all of us at Alcona County Republicans
    • • Carrie took what Jeff had written and edited it a little bit for one of the resolutions here.
    • • Signatures will come into play for these addendums
    • • In order to save a lot of money on stamps, we are hoping to take a trip to Lansing to hand
      deliver these packets
    • • Hardest part will be to get everyone's signatures onto the original packet. (Before signed
      copies are made to distribute.) Might do a “baton pass” type of signing thing.
    • • This packet will also be sent to the Board of Commissioners for Alcona County. (Not
      against them, but to keep them apprised of our actions.)
    • • A Press Release will be paid for to announce this packet.
    • • We all hope to have the packet finalized and ready to send/deliver by the end of this month
      (September).
  • ● Addendum 1
    • • Read aloud to those who attended the meeting by Carrie.
    • • This demands a Full Forensic Audit of the Michigan Democratic Party, Michigan
      Republican Party, and all the legislators of the House of Representatives and the Senate, as
      well as, the Governor, the Secretary of State, and the Attorney General of Michigan.
    • • Carrie will rewrite the wording in paragraph 4, to include a reference to addendum 3.
    • • Carrie would like to add “Jocelyn Benson” to the 6th paragraph to this. (“Yet, you want the
      people of Michigan to simple be quiet and accept the word of a few Senators with no
      relevant expertise, over those of actual experts?”) We would insert her into the “the word of
      a few Senators & Jocelyn Benson”.
    • • Add Benson to the list, with a D by her name. Put down she graduated from Magdalen
      College in Oxford, UK, with a degree into Sociology. She also graduated from Harvard,
      before moving to Detroit to become a law clerk. Wording for this will need to be refined.
    • • Page 2, paragraph 1, add “nor is Benson” at the end of it.
    • • Page 2, paragraph 4, add the full section (from Dr. Turek) to this part. (The addendum,
      passed in 2018, proposal 3)
    • • Page 2, paragraph 9, add executive branch to “we call for the MRP, MDP,...”
    • • Page 3, paragraph 1, change “24 pages” to “the following attached pages”
  • ● Addendum 2
    • • page 2, paragraph 2, “read the following report”
    • • page 2, paragraph 2, change “didn't” to “did not”
  • ● Addendum 3
    • • Some minor syntax changes (comma's at the end of the “WHEREAS” statements)
    • • “prescribed by law” will be bolded and underlined
    • • 5th whereas, the wording has to be the same as the copy that people have signed.
    • • Adding “per the report” after “clear weaknesses in our election system” in the second
      “therefore” clause.
    • • Conclusion: first paragraph, “that need solved” to be changed to “needs solving” or
      something similar. (which require remedy)
    • • Second paragraph of conclusion, add “when there were so many Problems?”, after Benson's
      quote.
    • • Third paragraph, change the first “conducted” to “performed”.
    • • Third paragraph, change “up and up” to “either legitimate or accurate”.
    • • Third paragraph, change “hereon” to “from this time forward”
    • • Last line of conclusion, capitalize and bold “not” in “we will not go away”, and also change
      the period of that statement to an exclamation point.
  • ● Addendum 4 (Censure Resolution)
    • • Carrie motions to re-accept Addendum 4 because Kathy resigned as Treasurer, and Chris
      Wagener is appointed to the position of Treasurer until a Special Election can be held. (See
      more about this below the section of “New Treasurer”)
    • • Greg Anderson seconds the motion to re-accept Addendum 4 with changes specified.

    • • Add Chris Wagener's name to the document to replace Kathy's name
    • • Will correct Jeff's name to “Jeffrey” instead of “Jeffery”
  • ● Addendum 5 (Resolution to Withhold Monetary and Provisional Support from GOP)
    • • This is a resolution to withhold physical and material support from the republican party and
      legislators in the state of Michigan
    • • This one needs the most editing.
    • • First the title, “A RESOLUTION TO WITHHOLD PHYSICAL AND MATERIAL
      SUPPORT FROM THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND LEGISLATORS IN THE STATE OF
      MICHIGAN” to include MIGOP, Legislators who have not done anything to move anything
      forward. (Only grassroots movements have really done anything.)
    • • This current edition of this resolution came from the 11th Congressional District.
    • • “Monetary and Provisional support from” (instead of “physical and material support from”)

      vote was flipped, and reference them in the 7th whereas.
    • • 9th whereas to add “November” to “November and December respectively”.
    • • Page 2, paragraph 1, make it reflect the new title, (withhold material and promotional
      support part)
    • • Page 2, paragraph 3, change “MIGOP” to “MRP”
    • • Once edited as prescribed above, will come to a vote for approval.
  • ● Addendum 6 (Censure of Michigan Senate and House of Representatives)
    • • Originally came from the 11th Congressional District
    • • Title to change “Censorship” to “Censure”
    • • Title to remove “Leadership” from both Senate and Representatives
    • • Last line (9th paragraph) of this resolution to change “Censorship” to “Censure”
    • • Change “the United States and State Constitutions” to “Constitution of the United States of
      America and the Michigan State Constitution”
    • • Third paragraph, put the quoted portion into italics.
    • • Maybe add the leadership names to the resolution in a whereas or in the introduction, to
      better specify whom we are censuring.

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner

We're hoping that Greg can see if we can rent out the Masonic Lodge to host this dinner. Carrie really

wants the “Swiss Steak Dinner” from there if we can rent it out. Other options for venues are welcome

to recommended to Carrie.

Harrisville Labor Day Parade

The Harrisville Labor Day Parade is this Sunday at 1pm. Line up for the parade on 6th St. at 12pm

(noon). Carrie will have candies and other grab-bags to give away to the parade-goers.

Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup

Our portion of the M-65 Highway is due for another cleanup activity from Alcona Republicans! At the

next meeting we will discuss the day and time that we'll plan to gather and make our part of M-65

gorgeous. The dates under consideration are from September 25th – October 3rd. The stretch is a 2 mile

stretch near McCullum and Buck roads. (It's a total of 4 miles to clean up. 2 miles on either side.)

New Treasurer

Unfortunately, our Treasurer, Kathy McLean, has to resign from her position. Her husband is worse off

than she thought, and requires more of her time and care, which leaves her little to no time to be our

Treasurer. As such, the position of Treasurer is open.

Carrie Mullins nominated Chris Wagener to become the next Treasurer. Chris Wagener accepts this

nomination. Kristina Anderson motions to vote Chris into the position of Treasurer. Jeffrey Dobbs

seconds this motion. A roll call vote was held.

  • • Carrie Mullins – Yes
  • • Jeffrey Dobbs – Yes
  • • Jessica Dobbs – Yes
  • • Greg Anderson – Yes
  • • Kris Anderson – Yes
  • • William Sickner – Abstain
  • • Larry Brozowski – Absent
  • • Jaynee Germond – Absent
  • • Molly Adkins – Absent

The motion passes, and therefore, Chris Wagener is our new Treasurer. Congratulations!

Tentative Agenda for the Next Meeting:

  • – Update: Harrisville Labor Day Parade
  • – Update & Vote on Packet to be Sent to Lansing, etc.
  • – Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup
  • – Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner
  • – Other Agenda Items to be Added as Needed

Adjournment:

Motion to adjourn, called by Carrie, seconded by Jess at 12:43pm. Next core team meeting to be held

on September 7, 2021 at 1pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center. Next open meeting to be held

on September 27, 2021 at 7pm at the Chosen Ranch Community Center.

Business:

Full Forensic Audit Resolution

We are presenting a letter demanding a Full Forensic Audit to the Michigan Democratic Party,

Michigan Republican Party, all legislators in the House of Representatives and Senate, as well as the

Governor, Attorney General, and Secretary of State. This letter is to officially advocate and demand a

Full Forensic Audit of the 2020 General Election in the State of Michigan. We feel that Benson has not

done any audit as defined by her office. We have a grassroots petition that was available to sign at the

Alcona County Fair, that will also be included in this letter.

Alcona County Fair Report

The fair this year was rather slow, because the company who was to provide rides for fair-goers to

enjoy, backed out of their job, two days before the fair was to take place. However, our booth was

present at the fair, and it seems those who attended, enjoyed their time there to talk to people who are

interested in what we are up to and all about. We also had some new members join our party because of

the fair. Both of our silent auctions sold as well. Congratulations to those who won the auctions!

Censure of McBroom, Theis, and Bizon

It was discussed about censuring McBroom, Theis, and Bizon, for violating their oaths of office for

authoring a report that included the following statement: “The Committee recommends the attorney

general consider investigating those who have been utilizing misleading and false information about

Antrim County to raise money or publicity for their own ends.” This statement in their report goes

against the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. They are asserting that anyone who

disagrees with their assessment of the 2020 General Election, should be investigated by the Attorney

General. In doing so, they have weaponized the State against Citizens who disagree with them.

Jaynee Germond motioned to approve this Censure letter. Jessica Dobbs seconded the motion. The vote

was done by a roll call. It stands as such:

  • Carrie Mullins – Yes
  • Jeffrey Dobbs – Yes
  • Jessica Dobbs – Yes
  • Kathy McLean – Absent
  • Greg Anderson – Yes
  • Lawrence (Larry) Brozowski – Absent
  • Jaynee Germond – Yes
  • William Sickner – Yes
  • Molly Adkins – Absent
  • Kristina Anderson – Yes

The motion is tabled as of now until the three absent members can vote on this issue. Should this

motion pass, Precinct Delegates will be emailed a copy of this letter, so they can add their names to it

as well, should they wish to do so.

Treasurer's Report

Carrie will transfer the money needed for the domain name of the website for the Alcona County

Republicans to stay active and registered to our party. (Treasurer was absent today, so no report other

than that, at this time.)

Board of Canvassers Recommendations

Jessica Dobbs, Drew Wagener, and Jaynee Germond all volunteered to be recommended for the Board

of Canvassers. Carrie will submit these names to the County Clerk.

Redistricting Update

Livingston County might be split up into 3 parts. Redistricting meetings are open to the public, and the

next meeting will be held on September 9, 2021 at 3pm. It will be held in the same room that the Board

of Commissioners meetings are held. The new software that they're trying to use for the redistricting

efforts, are straight from Jocelyn Benson's office.

Kristina Anderson as Trustee

There was a hiccup at the last meeting. We thought we went through the official process to have Kris

become a Trustee, but we messed up and somehow overlooked that. Whoops! So, tonight we took a roll

call vote to make her a Trustee. The motion was called by Greg, and seconded by Jeff. The vote went as

follows:

  • Carrie Mullins – Yes
  • Jessica Dobbs – Yes
  • Jeffrey Dobbs – Yes
  • Greg Anderson – Yes
  • William Sickner – No
  • Jaynee Germond – Absent
  • Molly Adkins – Absent
  • Lawrence (Larry) Brozowski – Absent
  • Kathy McLean – Absent

The motion was passed, and Kristina Anderson is officially a Trustee. Congratulations!

Harrisville Labor Day Parade

The Harrisville Labor Day Parade is coming up this Sunday, and we plan to attend! It will be held on

September 5, 2021, and lining up starts at 12pm on 6th Street. We plan to have a float in this parade.

The parade itself will begin at 1pm. If you would like to join us in the parade, please contact Carrie

Mullins.

Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner

Jessica Dobbs motions to have the Lincoln-Reagan-Trump 2021 Dinner on October 2nd, 2021. Kristina

Anderson seconds this motion. Those still in attendance to the meeting (William, Jess, Jeff, Greg, Kris,

and Carrie) all voted yes, and the motion passed. More details to follow.

Grand Traverse County Resolution

Grand Traverse County passed a resolution for medical freedom. Dr Turek and his wife will be

presenting the same resolution to the Board of Commissioners on September 1, 2021. Alcona County

Grassroots Conservatives will be presenting a similar resolution that piggybacks off of this one.
