Elect Jim Gurr

Northern Michigan is too much a part of my life to allow it to be sold to the highest bidders in Lansing.

Our current State Senator serves many masters, but unfortunately not the voters in the 37th State Senate District.  This is unfortunate, and sadly typical of those who hold power of office to be more important than the needs of the people they serve.

The needs of Northern Michigan can only be best met by someone who would not (as the current State Senator has done) :

  • Promote expensive and constitutionally prohibited legislation such as Red Light Cameras
  • Promote impossible-to-verify electronic voting  that threaten the integrity of our elections
  • Raise fuel taxes the disproportionately affects our region, lower income workers, and struggling families
  • Raise the cost of insurance, by holding the MCCA accountable for the Billions of dollars held in secret escrow
  • Raise the cost of vehicle registration by 40%
  • Allow more private property to be transferred to the state, which puts poorer communities in the position of having to raise taxes because of lost property revenues
  • Vote to essentially DOUBLE the state stipend to Detroit schools which continue to be mismanaged, and cause our other districts to be short changed
  • Continues to support the MEDC, which has lost our state Billions, which rewards political supporters and payola schemes.
  • Cozies up to the anti private property left regularly, suppressing our land use rights.

It needs to be said, that our political system is not exactly free of corruption.

I cannot speak to the intent of the current office holder, as many have the best of intentions for end results, yet fail to follow a path of integrity.  However, even the softest of corrosive forces in election and policy crafting processes can damage our ability to earn, live, and thrive.

Our communities deserve so much better than what we have had to endure, and it is my hope that I can make the case it is not too late.

Thank you.

  1. REVENGE 2018 !! Vote out never ending gas tax increase Wayne Schmidt !! REVENGE 2018 !!!

    need an address for donations.

  2. Presently, there is a Bill, HB 4220 in the House Energy Committee that would allow utility customers to have the right to have a safe analog utility meter on their homes. The new digital “smart” meters and the monopoly’s so called “opt out” meter have been proven to cause health problems for many in the state. The monopoly utilities, DTE and Consumers, are forcing people to take one of their digital meters. If they don’t, they are threatened with shut off. Many customers HAVE been shut off for refusing installation of a digital meter. A Cheboygan disabled woman who has letters from 6 doctors saying that they have diagnosed her with electromagnetic sensitivity, (EMS) and cannot tolerate the radiation that the digital meters emit had her power cut by Consumers Energy on 9/11/15! That’s right. Over 2 1/2 YEARS ago and it’s STILL OFF. She refused installation of the digital meter and this is how she is being treated. She contacted Wayne Schmidt, Lee Chatfield, the Attorney General’s office, Americans with Disabilities, and all the state agencies she could find. NO ONE is able to help her. The two monopoly utilities have more power over our lives than all of our politicians. To me, there is certainly something wrong with this. If elected, will you support HB 4220, the Analog Meter Choice Bill? Thank you.

    1. We are well aware of the extortion being practiced by DTE and Consumers. Jim Gurr is dedicated to the reduction of taxes, regulations, and corrupt practices of our current government in Lansing. He has been active in supporting Utility Meter Choice 4 Michigan, and will continue to do so, including HB 4220.

    1. Hi Pat, Jim has been busy campaigning. I believe he has discussed adding choices by including out of state insurers as well as looking at the reformning the no fault law which puts us at a disadvantage.
