MILegalize just keeps charging forward!
Last weekend there were multiple events where the MIlegalize crews were collecting signatures and conducting meetings. Jamie Lowell and I worked with supporters Charmie Gholson and Eric Gunnels to host a Town Hall meeting in Saginaw. We received a generous donation from a benefactor that does not want to be credited; Jamie picked up several donation checks on the way up, and the crowd was enthusiastic.
We also made it on the Fox 66 News, talking about legalization. It was a long segment and was one of the very first stories the news program led with. When the conservative Fox Network features positive stories bout marijuana legalization, we have to think we're winning the war.
The Port Huron crew withstood blistering heat, raging storms, winds that wiped out other booths- even intimidation by event officials- and still managed to pull off about 2,000 signatures at the Port Huron Boat Night festivities. The event actually lasts for four days, and local organizer Laura Rigby was superior in her efforts. The booth was donated by Jim Amsdill, from the Blue Water organization. I was proud to collect signatures with the crew for two days. My sunburned skin- not so proud.
Today, we return to Port Huron and conduct another Town Hall meeting. This time, attorney and Board member David Rudoi is supposed to join Jamie, Charmie, Laura and myself on stage. The Port Huron Times-Herald has covered the story. We expect media and strong attendance.
And I'll be swinging by Holistic Earth, LLC in Davison to pick up a check from owner Jamie Fricke and her buddies. This is the last week for donations to be matched by that generous benefactor, a result of the Ann Arbor Dinner of Champions fundraiser, and Holistic Earth's check will be doubled.
