Republican Leadership Initiative

Sharing this info from the Michigan Republican Party

Friends,

I’ve got exciting news!

The Republican Leadership Initiative (RLI) has opened up its application process for the fall class.

We are ready to train Michigan’s conservative leaders to help us spread the word. If you are ready to take action, apply today. 

RLI is a national training program to equip grassroots leaders with the skills they need to work as professional field organizers.

It begins with our National Day of Training on Saturday, November 4th. We will be holding trainings in several locations across Michigan including Kent, Isabella, Oakland, Macomb, Monroe, and Marquette Counties.

Winning campaigns has always been about empowering our local activists and giving them the tools to make a difference in their communities.

Space is limited so apply today to secure your spot as a 2018 difference maker. www.migop.org/RLI

We’re going all in. I hope we can count on you to join us!

Thank you,

Chairman Ron Weiser

Highway Cleanup 07/22/2017

Come volunteer with other Republicans to do a good deed for our community and help keep Lapeer County beautiful!

Our next Republican Highway Cleanup is scheduled for July 22 at 9:00 AM.  We will meet at the Republican Office, 338 W. Nepessing (Parking Lot side of Nepessing next to Detroit Burger Bar) for coffee and doughnuts prior to the walk.  We always need the healthy sustenance to keep us going.  It generally takes a couple of hours which is great exercise and we find lots of exciting artifacts!
