Skype with Independents

October 09, 2013

Independents for Responsible Government (I4RG) host Dwayne Carson, legislative strategist for Heritage Action, via Skype at its Oct. 9 meeting at Fountains Golf and Banquet Center, 6060 Maybee Road.

Carson will discuss his group's scorecard on federal representatives, based on their vote relative to Conservative principles.

County Commissioners Tom Middleton, John Scott and Jim Runestad will also address I4RG on local issues.

The meeting, free and open to the public, will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a networking reception. The Heritage group will address the group at 6:30 p.m.

"There is so much going on in our nation's capital that it hard to keep track of which scandal, bad policy or failed program to highlight. Heritage is our link to DC, and their on-site, inside knowledge is invaluable." said I4RG spokesperson Ray Hamman, of Clarkston. "We are excited to get a chance to interact directly with the people at Heritage and Mr. Carson can help us with strategies to get conservative ideas to the forefront in Washington"

"It is great that we can get both national and local perspective on the issues at one meeting. The federal issues, especially healthcare are going to impact us in one way or another and we need to get educated on this very complicated issues." said I4RG organizer Tony Messina of Clarkston. "Our politicians make every subject so complicated that we need to take the time to learn for ourselves what is real so that we can hold our representatives more accountable. I think they talk in riddles just so that we don't know what they are doing until it is too late."
