Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I have no experience with alternative energy but have tried to privately work on making our home more energy efficient. I have replaced all light bulbs, lowered my thermostat and drive my most effecient gas mileage car (avg. 30 mpg).
What excites you about this campaign?
I want to do something positive for our country. Timing could not be better with new administration coming to Washington. The Pickens Plan is the best idea I have seen presented and I am encouraged when I talked to friends and they agree that this is a great start for our country.
What do you want to do to help?
I would like to be a District Leader for MI-09. I am retired and have the time to work on getting us organized. I have a background in sales, marketing and management and I would like to use my skills in helping the campaign. I have been sitting on the sidelines for three years and it is time to "get off the bench". Put me in coach! Michigan needs a positive approach to all our problems and this can be a starting point for getting people in this state headed in the right direction. I will do what needs to be done and help in any way.

I want to get a Haynesville "street team" going to get the film into
communities across the country via house parties and community
screenings. The movie is a great way to educate people as to the
potential of natural gas as a clean, domestic energy source/fuel. So
many people said they were not good at community outreach because they
didn't know what to say. Well, this film does the talking for you!!!
It is an independently produced film which means it is a grassroots
film for a grassroots organization! I'd like all State and District
Leaders to get a copy. We have all worked very hard on this movement
and I think this film will make our job even easier. Please tell your
friends on and off the web about the film via your blog or website and
please get your own copy of the DVD to show to people in your area
such as your friends and family, schools, churches, business groups,
The 2010 election is rapidly approaching, and some of you are aware I will be running for the Oakland County 13th district State Senate seat. I am calling upon you to assit me in establishing better standards and the necessary reforms needed in Michigan. I must stress I cannot do this without your help-Pickens cannot do this without your help!
It starts and ends with you and me; all of us working together and as I have said over and over in our discussions-ordinary people can do extraordinary things when given the chance to participate.
What I have learned over the past 16 months reading and listening to your achievements for our noble cause is the change rarely happens from the top down, it happens from the bottom up. Many of us live our entire lives waiting for the chance to make a difference, to count, to really matter-well that time is now-answer the call to action and pledge to RIGHT Michigan, Pledge to put an end to the same failed policies and practices of the past, to poor decision making, and the lack of political will and courage by our state legislature. Join with me to usger in an era of real accountability, placing people (our women, children, community and neighbors) before party; the working class before lobbyist and special interest group.
The biggest risk we can take this year is to continue down the path we on, being led by the same old political gamers, practicing the same old politics that has failed you and me. How about we start an energy bond in Michigan, and solicit other good ideas from people like you and me who have been excluded, ignored, and disappointed.
I need a team of speakers to travel with me in [birmingham, troy, royal oak, madison heights, clawson, berkley, bloomfield hills and bloomfield township] hosting community conversation informing residents of our current situation as well as of the opportunities that await us in the future with the right leadership.
Don't I wish on the boat...! We call it the Beater Boat, but it runs!
Your info was just what I needed to see. Most of our districts representatives seem to be heavily in favor of the Plan! Thank goodness.
I also wanted to let you know about the many House Parties to discuss the Stimulus being held this Friday, Sat. & Sunday too. www.recovery.gov has an EVENT tab, where you enter your Zip for a listing of the Parties. I've joined up with one and plan on bringing the Pickens Plan sign-up sheet and other info. Hope you can get to one of these too!
Jay, I have been in touch with our Senator's and Representatives in Washington. The phones were answered by what I suspect are interns or staff. I made my positive comments towards Wind, CNG and alt. energy conversion assistance to our State and Local governments known. Is there any protocol when calling and who should we ask for besides the official? Perhaps their office manager, or chief of Staff? It would be helpful to know for future direct calls... the staff member did affirm that he/she would pass the info along, though.
Obama gave a terrific speech Friday from a wind turbine parts manufacturing facility in Ohio. Now is the time to keep up the pressure. We ARE changing the way everyone in this country looks at the energy crisis, and how it directly effects our economy, environment and national security.
