Jack Hoogendyke is bringing his Center Right Meeting to Muskegon. The meeting schedule is below. Toast n Jam's. I've hoped for this kind of thing since the start up of our Carmen Group breakfasts a year and a half ago.

If "Right to Work" rings your bell and you have been wanting to find out how to make Michigan a "Right to Work" state, Gary Glenn is a must see. All welcome.

Great news for Muskegon. Below is the email about it. The nice graphics won't transfer but the facts are there.

Do You Believe in Limited Government?
If you believe government is too big and intrusive, if you believe government taxes and regulates too much, then Center Right is where you need to be. Each month we will:
• Discuss bills before the legislature that need to be defeated because they grow government, or supported because they put limits on government.
• Hear from local elected officials or activists who are keeping watch on the growth of government at the city, township and county level.
• Listen to and ask questions of candidates for office who are running as limited-government conservatives.
• Network with local and state organizations like Mackinac Center, Americans for Prosperity, Education Action Group, MI-FairTax, and local Tea Party Organizations.
• Strategize on how to be effective at protecting our liberties.
You are welcome to bring any issues to the meeting you believe are appropriate. Please let me know if you would like to make a presentation. You will be given 5 minutes to speak, and answer questions. Please bring handouts that explain your issue in detail. Typical attendance is around 50.

If you would like to present, or if you have any questions, please contact me. I hope to see you there!
