One and Counting
After all, he has no money, no organization, no political
connections and some unkind louts would say he has no brain either.
The other stuff is true but Steve Harry does have some gray matter
and he's on a one-man crusade to put it to good use by abolishing the
Michigan Senate, abolishing term limits, abolishing collective
bargaining for public employees and converting the union-dominated
State of Michigan into a Right to Work state which would gut the union
movement big time.
Harry wants to launch four petition drives and recently appeared
before a state election agency to get approval of his petition forms.
That's the easy part and didn't cost him a dime.
Isn't state government grand?
Now all he needs is about $2-3 million dollars, by his own
estimate. He's probably short about a mil or so, but then who is
"I think by April, we can come up with the money," he
optimistically says while trying to convince the doubters that maybe he
doesn't need a brain transplant.
"I can't do this alone," he confess in the under statement of the
Yep. He will need help and he hopes to drill a successful hole
by asking the Tea Party folks to join in the fun
"I will talk to them," he suggests.
Now all he needs is about 400,000 signatures to put these four
reforms on the state wide ballot.
And if he gets those, he'll need another couple bucks to sell
it to the voters.
Mr. Harry is a former state worker, a self-avoided liberal
democrat and ready to do his part to revamp the government.
Maybe he could get the Nerd to help out. Ya know..hold some
town hall meetings, draft a four-plan and then hope Virg Bernero gets
angry again and comes out against it.
