Mike also kept his promise to bring tea party conservatives into the party. We had tea-party conservatives on the board and Mike discussed with me about the potential of adding a tea-party conservative to State Committee when a spot opened up. Unfortunately the tea-party member left our board before that opportunity arose.
Mike has been very open to new members becoming delegates. Mike made sure that we asked all in attendance in our meetings if they wanted to become a delegate during our meetings in early 2014 up to our April meeting, right before the May filing deadline. Mike made it easy for one to be a delegate as well as he personally offered to deliver delegate forms to the Wayne County Office and Barb Harrell offered to take the forms to the Oakland County Clerk's Office.
Mike was not only a leader but an extremely hard worker. He was instrumental in putting together many of our district events from Christmas Parties to Summer Picnics. All of this while maintaining his full time private sector job. Mike was one of the hardest workers and many have dubbed him the go to guy for putting up campaign signs. I can attest this fact as during October of last year, every time I called him, he was putting up signs for many of the candidates in the district. Mike has also donated hours of time door knocking and making phone calls for multiple candidates.
