Election Recount Volunteer Message from our Chair Jan Peabody


I’m reaching out to you this morning regarding the Election recount that was filed yesterday by Jill Stein.

The Michigan Republican Party has contacted me and is asking for volunteers to help with the recount.

This recount effort is unfortunately going to cost Michigan taxpayers lots of money.

If you are able to help with this process with any time you may have, please contact the Michigan Republican Party via email or phone per the directions below or myself via email at jpeabody27@hotmail.com or at 810-441-5029.

What You Can Do:

The Michigan Republican Party is the only entity organizing for this recount. Interested volunteers can sign up to help by visiting http://migop.org/recount. We are in need of organizers to act as Volunteer Captains and Deputy Volunteer Captains. Please email us with contact information if you know of someone in your county who can dedicate multiple days, is reliable and trustworthy, and who has a talent for organizing people.  We are working hand in hand with the Trump campaign and the RNC so that all sign ups flow to the same organizing team. If interested volunteers have any questions, please direct them to contact the Michigan Republican Party by emailing recount@migop.org or calling (517)487-5413.

Please forward this email to any Republican family members or  friends that you feel would be interested in helping in any area in Michigan.

Donald Trump Event in Michigan TODAY, 10/31/2016

trump-sign2016/10/31, LAPEER, MI:  We are sharing the following information we received from the Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney.

Good morning-

Donald Trump is coming back to Michigan tomorrow while Hillary Clinton continues to send surrogates on her behalf.  The more people see Hillary Clinton, the less likely they are to vote for her. On the heels of the announcement that the FBI is reopening their investigation into her emails, Americans are even more weary of handing her the keys to the Oval Office. Donald Trump wants to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C. and that’s what Michiganders want as well.

Donald Trump will be doing two rallies in the state.  Details are below:

Grand Rapids Rally – October 31 at 12:00 pm

DeltaPlex Arena, 2500 Turner Avenue NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49544

Tickets: Register here.

Warren Rally – October 31 at 3:00 pm

Macomb Community College, 14500 E. 12 Mile Rd., Warren, MI 48088

Tickets: Register here




P.S. We only have 9 days left to help Donald Trump win Michigan.  If Donald Trump wins Michigan, he will be the next President of the United States!  Let us know what you’re willing to do to help us win at migop.org/volunteer.

LCS School Board Candidate Forum

School Board Candidate Forum

Hosted by the Lapeer County Tea Party

Comprising Approximately 55% of the students in Lapeer County, Lapeer Community schools has many upcoming decisions that must be addressed soon. Currently, the districts teachers are working under an old contract, with an administration that has one of the lowest overhead costs in the state. From budget issues, to Common Core, to state regulated bathroom policy, there are very important challenges that will need to be addressed by the next Board of Education. We believe that it is extremely important to interview those who will ultimately be making those decisions in the name of our kids.

Please join us this coming Tuesday, November 1st at 7PM at Mayfield Township Hall as we welcome those individuals who are running for the Lapeer Community Schools Board of Education. As always, the public is welcome and invited and this event will be streamed live on our livestream page.
