DEMAND FOR RESIGNATION AND DISASSOCIATION
WHEREAS, State Representative Todd Courser has brought dishonor and embarrassment to the people of Lapeer County and to the Lapeer County Republican Party; and
WHEREAS, Todd Courser has been recorded in the act of directing his taxpayer paid staff to distribute an obscene and untruthful email which Courser describes as a “controlled burn” in which he openly states in the recording as “a little bit of truth mixed in with a lot lies” (May 19, 2015 recording); and

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Lapeer County Republican Party Executive Committee hereby demands that Todd Courser submit his resignation as State Representative so that a competent Republican can be elected to represent the people of Lapeer County.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Todd Courser is banned from participating in or displaying any literature or signs at events paid for by the Lapeer County Republican Party, such as event booths or parade groups.
