Part 2: Preparing for County Convention

The Macomb County Republican Party sent out the Call to the Convention to all Precinct Delegates in mid-July.  It is assumed that write-in candidates for precinct delegate may not have received the Call to Convention as their intent may not have been known at that time.

Persons seated as delegates to the county conventions shall be the precinct delegates as elected at the August 7, 2012 primary election.

All elected Precinct Delegates will receive a Notice of Election as Delegate to County Convention from the Macomb County Clerk.  In the past, it has been required that in order to be seated as a delegate in the convention, this Notice needs to be presented at convention checkout.  Be sure to bring your Notice of Election as Delegate to County Convention with you to the county convention.  If you did not receive this notice, you can call the Macomb County Clerk at 586-469-5209.

Also to be seated as delegates to the County Convention will be the most recent Republican nominees for state senate, state representative, county-wide and county commission positions, all incumbent Republican members of the State Legislature, the Michigan Congressional delegation, Statewide Officeholders, the Republican National Committeeman and National Committeewoman from Michigan and Michigan Republican Party Officers where such person resides in the county in question. These nominees will be referred to as “at-large delegates.”

Those candidates that were unsuccessful in their bids to run for state legislative office, county office, and precinct delegate are encouraged to attend the county convention.

Be sure to arrive at the convention prior to 7:30 p.m. so that all delegates can be seated to assist with starting the convention promptly.

PROXY VOTING PROHIBITED

No delegate to any convention or caucus governed by the convention Rules may give a proxy to represent him/her at such convention or caucus.

About Pete Hoekstra:

Pete Hoekstra

U.S. Senate Candidate Pete Hoekstra

Pete Hoekstra is a successful politician, businessman, and leader. He represented Michigan’s 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. Congress from 1993 to 2010. Previously, he worked at Herman Miller. He graduated from Hope College in 1975 and earned a Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Michigan.

Over his 15 year career at Herman Miller, Pete worked in product development, product management, dealer development, rising through the ranks to become Vice-President of Marketing.

In the U.S. House, Pete has served on numerous committees including Education and Labor, Budget, and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He also was privileged to participate in the development of the Contract with America that in 1994 laid the foundation for Republicans to capture the House for the first time in 40 years.

Working on a bipartisan basis with a Democratic President, Pete and the Republican Leadership in Congress, helped balance the budget for four years in the late 1990s, led the way to overthrowing the results of a corrupt Teamsters Union election, and was instrumental in reforming the Intelligence Community in response to the terrorist attacks of 2001 and the report of the 9/11 commission. Pete has continued to work for reform in education and government, advocating for increased flexibility for parents and states.

Pete and his wife Diane have been married for over 30 years, reside in Holland , and have three wonderful children, Erin, Allison, and Bryan. Spending time with family is Pete’s greatest enjoyment, followed by running, biking and golfing.

Join us from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. for social hour and dinner from the fine Hamlin Pub menu.
