Oakland County Budget Townhall

Date: 
Thu, Apr 25, 2019 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

City:

In March, Governor Whitmer unveiled her proposed budget. It included a $507 million funding increase for schools, with a focus on students in special education and in poverty.

NOW WHAT???!!

The proposed budget has to go through a complicated process in the Legislature, and we will have to fight to get that funding increase through.

So, join us at this town hall near you for a breakdown of what's been proposed, what we still need, and how we can win it all. You'll leave with your own action plan to make a difference.

End the American Nightmare - Protest Trump Jr, Kid Rock

Date: 
Wed, Oct 17, 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:30pm

City:

Donald Trump Jr, Kid Rock and ex-Fox News propagandist Kimberly Guilfoyle are coming to Pontiac, MI to hype up John James in his attempt to unseat Debbie Stabenow.

While John James is welcome to his Senate campaign, his choice in company is not to be tolerated. He has an aspiring oligarch in Trump Jr, a musician that never saw a slaver banner he didn't like and a Fox News personality that couldn't even beat out Sean Spicer to the White House Press Secretary job.
