MTTM Endorses Greg MacMaster for the Michigan 105th district House Seat

We are in the midst of a series of crisis that calls for absolute understanding in the primary cycle where the conservatives and moderates stand.  Never have we had to consider absolutes in such a way that a yes or no question was imperative as today. YES or NO..  Taking a stand and committing to principle, instead of some wishy washy nuanced approach that is designed to maximize votes and not hurt any feelings.  True conservative principle that has no room for an intrusive government. Our leaders need to be transparent in their core convictions, the part of them which drives their actions on our behalf.

They also need to be upstanding.

But imperfection is not the end of a person’s career, it merely shows that man is flawed.  What we do to improve ourselves, to own up to our mistakes, and commit to correction, is what can make us even better.  Responsibility to bettering oneself is a requirement to lead others by example. We grow by learning from our failings, but only if we take ownership of them. I know someone who has done and is still doing this.Secondly, a firm stand on what is right for the citizens being served is critical for effective representation.  A passionate interest in preserving rights and sovereign interest for the people of Michigan and the 105th district state house is validated by two simple questions I asked:

“Would you suport efforts in the house to reaffirm states rights?” and ” if you were there now, would you vote to invalidate the federal health care bill?”


On both counts from the man I would recommend, the answer was an immediate YES and YES.
These are simply two questions we should be asking ANY of the primary contenders who would represent the Republican party come November.

My advice for the voters of the 105th district house seat would be to choose Greg MacMaster to represent them.  Not because he was the weather guy, but because he WAS the weather guy.  He held a position he did not have to give up.  He voluntarily left a position of considerable positive exposure to try to become a servant of the citizens of the 105th.

For him, it is not a step up but a call to duty. Something he is familiar with as a veteran with overseas experience.  And as he has worked with responders, police and fire officials in his private and public life, he can bring a proper perspective culled from a variety of experiences necessary to running the proper functions of the state.

This is my official PERSONAL endorsement of Greg MacMaster. May he, as the best candidate, win the Republican primary for the House 105th.

    how can you make such an endorsement without even interviewing or approaching the other candidates for their thoughts? this is pretty bad, gillman. you don’t even live in the district. what’s your motivation here? are you being paid to give this endorsement? did he hire your son? macmaster doesn’t even live in the 105th.

      Are you a stalker? How do you know if I interviewed the other candidates? And as far as residency, I thought Kewadin was in the district. Either I am wrong, or you failed geography. But hey for the benefit of all, here is the map http://www.house.mi.gov/district_maps/dist105.pdf

      And true.. I do not live in the district.. I imagine you have never given support for a deserving person outside your own small world right? Yeah.. thought not.. ;O)

      And why would one assume I would be paid for an endorsement? Is that what you would do? I believe there is a psychological term for that.. “projection…”

      ” Projection is a form of defense in which unwanted feelings are displaced onto another person, where they then appear as a threat from the external world. A common form of projection occurs when an individual, threatened by his own angry feelings, accuses another of harboring hostile thoughts.”

      Who knows why you are upset because I have stated that I prefer one candidate.. oh wait.. ohh.. never mind.

    Hey Dennis,

    No, he didn’t hire me.

    What would it matter if he did?

    By the way, if any one cares, Dennis’s Committee street address is:
    5534 CLIFFORD ST
    TOPINABEE, MI 49791

    If Lennox is so upset about someone not living in the district endorsing Macmaster, should we care about Saul’s endorsement of Lennox? Why can people outside the district endorse Lennox but not Macmaster? Lennox needs to stop complaining and get a grip on his campaign. I heard him on the radio about raising more money than any other candidate. Well if you subtract what he loaned his committee, he’s only raised about $4000 in 15 months, not the $25,000 he’s told everybody. MacMaster’s committee is closing in on $3000 and that’s after two weeks on the campaign trail! That’s TWO WEEKS!

    Lennox is smearing Macmaster by telling everyone he doesn’t live in the district. Just like Jason said, Kewadin is in the District! Now, do you really want Lennox representing our district when he doesn’t even know where Kewadin is? I sure wouldn’t.

    I live in the 105th District and I’m paying close attention to who is doing the mud slinging in this campaign. This is exactly what voters have had their fill of! Leave these tactics to the Democrats. People are sick, of the same old “politics as usual” routine and this time it isn’t going to help anyone get elected!
