Tell people what you think

Graphic designer with some political experience required for a few dozen (minimum) print/mail (likely a little website stuff too) projects starting immediately through October 29 (and perhaps for years afterwards). Much of the candidate work will likley be for Republicans (but we won't tell your friends if you're not one).

Call/text 517.285.9659 or FB message us or email First come first serve on this one (though I know it's Super Bowl Sunday and Late Monday). No need to be from Michigan (or to ever meet you in person).

No weird commitment paperwork (in case you don't end up liking it). You will be paid a few hours after each piece goes to the printer.

We understand if you can only (semi) commit through July 31. This is subcontract, not employee.

This is it, we’re settling our differences in house.”…/…/snyder_calley_ticket_set_for_n.html

Only Conservative in GOP Primary Race in Best Position to Win

WALLED LAKE, Mich. – Conservative Republican Dan Lauffer has officially entered the race for State Representative to represent the 38th House District, consisting of Walled Lake, Novi, Lyon Township, South Lyon and part of Northville in Oakland County.

“My solemn pledge to the taxpayers of the 38th District is that I will never vote expand ObamaCare in anyway and I will never vote for any kind of tax increase whatsoever under any circumstances,” said Lauffer. “This differentiates me from my moderate opponent who has pledged to ‘continue Hugh’s great record.’ While Hugh and Kathy Crawford are nice people, the Crawford record includes multiple votes to expand ObamaCare and to impose the senior pension tax on my fellow retirees. I’ll fight every day to overturn CrawfordCare and the Crawford Pension Tax if elected.”

Born and raised in Southeast Michigan, Dan Lauffer, 67, was a Pastor for 27-years before serving as a college professor for 13 years and is recently retired. Unlike Kathy Crawford, Lauffer has signed the American’s For Tax Reform “No Tax Hike Pledge.” Rep. Crawford was the deciding vote on passing the Senior Pension Tax.

The Dan Lauffer for State Representative campaign has retained the consulting services of Advantage Associates, LLC and its President, Jake Davison. “Dan Lauffer is in a perfect position to win this primary,” said Davison. “Kathy is the de facto incumbent and has embraced Hugh’s entire record, this is a one-on-one match-up and Dan has the ability to bring together Tea Party conservatives as well as those GOP primary voters who do not consider themselves to be Tea Party.”

On January 31, the Friends of Kathy S. Crawford committee had only raised $7,850 -- $1,000 of which was a personal loan from the Crawford’s, $1,000 was a loan from a political consultant and with another $5,000 from Hugh Crawford’s PAC. Having only actually raised $850 (and having only $1,398 cash-on-hand), there is no reason to believe that Crawford is in anyway “leading” the race seeing as how there was no actual race until today. In fact, in just a few short days, Lauffer has outraised Crawford.

Lauffer is a resident of Walled Lake, where he lives with his wife of 47-years, Christine. The Lauffers have two adult children and are expecting a fourth grandchild this summer.
