The Charlevoix County GOP hosted a visually-stunning event in support of Trump 2020, as well as in support of state-wide and local candidates.

GOP Candidates’ Forum: 107th District Race

Last night the ECRP hosted a well-received GOP candidates’ forum for the ladies and gentlemen who are running for Speaker of the House/Rep. Lee Chatfield’s seat and are eager to move, part-time, to Lansing. to represent a geographically-large, bodacious region. Six of the seven candidates for the 107th District MI House of Representatives race attended – Tana Baldwin, John Damoose, Sue Fisher, Terry Lamb, Damon Lieurance, and Kathy Twardy. (David Laughbaum did not make it.) This was the first time these candidates were in the same room at the same time together. An ECRP executive board sub-committee prepared ten questions, and Izzy Lyman acted as the evening’s emcee. The exchange was cordial, civil, informative, and interesting. Thank you to the candidates who participated (three drove from the UP!), as well as to their families who came to support them, as well as to the audience who was attentive and engaged. We wish everyone the best on August 4, 2020!

GOP Leadership Made Soo Lock a Reality

Janet Szymanski, an ECRP executive board member and a Precinct Delegate, wrote the letter, below, which was published in the Petoskey News-Review on May 21, 2020.

To the editor:

The Army Corps of Engineers announced that construction of a new lock in Sault Ste. Marie has started.

While the project is a long-term three-phased project, the significance of progress should not be lost on us.

This is truly a “shovels in the ground” moment that can’t be overstated.

This project has been talked about for decades by dozens of politicians. Congressman [Jack] Bergman promised he would make this project a top priority when he ran his very first campaign in 2016, and sure enough, he held to his word.

We heard the President talk at his rally in Washington Township two years ago that it was time to fix the Soo Locks. While doubters continued to doubt, this was a pivotal moment for the project as Rep. Bergman and his colleagues had garnered the President’s support for this project.

We should all be proud of Representative Bergman and President Trump for fighting for our economy and country.
