Dear R. George ,  
Congressman Pete Hoekstra to Keynote Event!

Gubernatorial Candidate Pete Hoekstra Keynote Speaker
Hoekstra Pete

  Pete Hoekstra, so far the only candidate for governor that is actively advocating for the MI FairTax, will kick off the event with a presentation at 11:30 AM sharp.  (Watch this short video as Pete Talks Taxes.) 

Mike Huckabee and Mike Gravel!
Mike Huckabee and Mike Gravel, Republican and Democrat respectively and presidential candidates in the last election cycle, will both address the summit by video!

The summit will provide some great training to candidates and their supporters on how to best advocate for the MI FairTax and the national FairTax, Q & A sessions and seminars, critical Do's and Don'ts, Debate Practice and Pointers, Working with the Media, and some good one liners and quotable sound bites.  As FairTax candidates, attendees will learn how to capitalize on the fact that FairTax candidates are the only ones with the key answer to Michigan's economic problems and out of control government.

Learn How the FairTax Can Help Your Candidate's Campaign

The summit will provide a great opportunity to learn from other candidates what has worked for them and to coordinate campaign efforts with candidates of neighboring districts for maximum benefit.  Candidates will learn how to be proactive on the FairTax proposals and how this will benefit their campaigns.

This is a Must-Attend Event for all candidates that think that, at the least, the MI FairTax should be placed on the ballot for Michigan voters to have the opportunity to vote on the issue; and that the National FairTax should be brought to the floor of the U.S. House and Senate for a up or down vote by our elected representatives in Congress.  

The FairTax - A Winning Campaign Strategy

The objective of the Summit is to arm candidates with the knowledge and skills necessary to optimally help them win their campaigns for office; and to help all
The FairTax - An Election-Winning Strategy
WIN with the MI FairTax Strategy!
candidates educate the public on these vary popular issues.  What we have found is that the more people learn about the FairTax proposals the more they like them.  Many candidates running on the FairTax proposals across the state will serve to educate the voters statewide.
Primary campaigns are a great opportunity to prepare the public on the FairTax issues for the general election.  Primary races with more than one FairTax candidate and FairTax candidates in neighboring districts are ideal as the discussion by more than one candidate adds to the acceptance of the proposal by the public and will help to get FairTax candidates elected in the primary and general elections.  
The Best Defense is a Good Offense
The more that voters are aware of the proposals the greater is the likelihood that attacks on FairTax candidates, in which the proposals are misrepresented as a basis for the attacks, will backfire on the attackers.  In fact, if the public is sufficiently aware of the proposals only a fool will try such an attack.  Being on the offensive will deny non FairTax candidates the opportunity to play on our field at all.

Call Your Candidates NOW!

Dialing Phone
Time is tight
so I suggest that you first contact your candidates that are likely to be the most receptive to the FairTax proposals so as to give them the most time to benefit from your counsel and sufficient time to arrange their schedules so as to be able to attend our July 18 MI FairTax Summit

Go get 'em as this is our best opportunity to educate the public via the campaigns of so many candidates across the state and to help us elect candidates that will assist us in the adoption of the MI FairTax and national FairTax.
Please keep us posted on all developments with each of your Candidates by e-mailing John Crawford with your updates. 
You are playing a critical role in implementing the MI FairTax!  Thanks for your all-important work on this task!
