Six Michigan State Convention Delegates Needing Some Help (5/11 Deadline)Submitted by GibbsEricJ on Thu, 05/10/2012 - 21:32
Good Evening Everybody,
My Girlfriend and I were both chosen at our County Convention to be Delegates at our State Convention. Our State Convention is two days long, Friday 5/18 and Saturday 5/19. Unfortunately, money is real tight as I am personally in the middle of switching jobs, and she is part time. Not to mention our rent is late, lol. However we are really wanting to try our hardest to get to the State Convention in Detroit. The "cut-off" date for hotel reservations with the MI Republican Party is tomorrow.
For us to get to Detroit and participate, it is going to cost us $149 between lodging, travel, gas, etc. Edit: Turns out the hotel itself is $149, and they charge $25 a night for parking. What is up with that?
Does anybody have any suggestions on the best way to get help? I know that the campaign can not help directly.
So you all don't think that I am lying, here is my Precint Delegate form. The girlfriends is in the car at the moment from when we went to County Convention. lol.
We started a Chip In. Never used it before but this is what everyone seems to use.
If anybody has any advice or suggestions, please do share!
EDIT: I posted below about our friends Jamie and Samantha in Montcalm County and Brad and Connor. Thanks for everyones help! You definitely know how to make a grown man speechless.
