. . . hear me ROAR!
.The People of Michigan Deserve Better!
A Democratic Leader who will not sit-back!
If ever there was a time to Elect a strong Leader, now is the time!
. . . . A big concern in our community right now is the potential dangers our citizens will be facing as Jordan Development whose corporate headquarters is located in Travers City-Michigan, starts up their projects in and around the near by surrounding areas of Waterford, Clarkston and the Independence Township. The Waterford Township Board and the Clarkston/Independence Township Boards have decided to let Jordan Oil Company into our communities for political and industrial profit gains, ignoring the disapproval from it’s citizens who have voiced their concerns during the past few months at several township hall meetings.Please note: The City of Lake Angelus has been omitted from the list of communities “buying into” Jordan Developement’s Big Oil Scheme. Could this be, because State Rep. Gail Haines lives there? Think about it!
Water is needed to sustain ALL Life.
Without WATER there is death!
. . . . When a decision of this magnitude is made, that will have a long lasting great and powerful effect on the environment for many generations to come - The Elected Officials should listen to their constituents and not their pockets! Let’s face it, human error is bound to happen – then what?
Call-it “ F-r-a-c-k-i-n-g ”
It ALL means the same thing!
Just DON’T do-it
in PURE-Michigan!(More on this topic near the bottom of this page.)
People of District 43
Need someone THEY can depend on!
Someone Who Will Stand-Up and Protect Their Rights!
If ever there was a time – Now Is that time
to Elect a Strong Leader!
.… .The partisan agenda of the G.O.P. is lacking leadership and accountability! They act like “bullies” in the name of democracy! The stability of our great state along with the future of our young and old are at grave risk of injustice if this kind of practice is allowed to continue!
I decided to run for
State Representative in 2012
Because My State Rep Voted in Favor of
PUBLIC ACT 4 of 2011
The “Emergency Financial Manager” Law
. . This new law gives the Governor full power to over rule the Voters decision by eliminating any persons holding an elected city official office, municipality or school board position without collective bargaining rights or honoring previously negotiated contracts. Instead of hiring a “shadow” person to help assist in resolving the financial crises and getting things back on tract, the individual or group of people are Fired! They are then replaced by a ridiculously over paid E.F.M. (by the way, this term has been changed several times since going into effect) and staff, who often are incapable of handling the “appointed” position and quit! In doing so, leave a larger financial burden and worst mess than what was originally present. Besides, this new law goes against the Michigan State Constitution and the Voice of the People!
. With the 2012 Elections over and Ballot Proposal 1 – Voted down, . . . . . . . . . “The Emergency Financial Manager Law” known as Public Act 4 of 2011, Michigan’s *Governor Rick Snyder (2011- present) has found yet another “loop-hole” in which to enact his will and go against the decision of the People’s vote by resurrecting Public Act 72 of 1990, the “Local Financial Stability and Choice Act” which was implemented while *Governor James J. Blancher (1983-1990) was still in office.
Public Act 72 of 1990, does not provide the necessary tools to properly address financial crises either, and still allows “emergency managers” to modify or terminate contracts much like Public Act 4 of 2011.
.My State Rep also Voted in Favor of PUBLIC ACT 38 of 2011
.The “Senior Pension and Property Tax” Law
. . This new law places a new Tax on public and private pensions of anyone born between Jan. 1, 1946 and Dec. 31, 1952, their retirement income will be taxed at 4.35 percent anything above $20,000 if they are single filers and above $40,000 if they are joint filers. This new Tax also reduces the homestead property tax relief for seniors and others and eliminated the senior exemption from the state income tax. At a time when families struggle to make ends meet, this is just wrong! I say, it’s time to corral Corporate America and REFORM TAXES, the High Cost of Living and Shrinking Benefits!
If ever there was a time to Elect a strong Leader,
Now Is that Time!
People of District 43
This is Why You should Vote for
The current State Rep. of District 43, Ms. Gail Haines
held the position of “Assistant Associate Whip” in the Republican Caucus during her 2010-2012 term and KNOWS BETTER!
She has intentionally betrayed Voters by VOTING against them . . .
. . . She assumes the duty of “Whipping” the Republican House of Representatives – into line! Making sure they understand the issues at hand and to influence their decisions to follow their “respected” party line in agreement on issues regarding legislation that is lead by the Governor.
Does the current State Rep of District 43
really care about YOU?
Does She Really Care?
IF she really cared about Women, WHY did She Vote in Favor of de-funding programs that offer Well Care and Reproductive Services to Women? HB 5711 is the most extreme anti-choice legislation and biggest attach on Women’s Health in History!
Where is the compassion and understanding as to WHY These Services Are So Important to Women who are unable to pay the outrageous fees to go to a doctor’s office! She should have at least, found it in her heart to put Women’s Best Interest first! INSTEAD Big Money has taken over control and these programs are being canceling!I wonder ? Does her husband . . . A “Doctor” have anything to do with her decision? .
She preaches against the “A” word of Pro-Choice Supporters and Patronizes Pro-Life Organizations Protecting Life! Tell me, How THIS is any different from a “Company” such as a Doctor, Hospital, Insurance, Special Interest Group with Big Money MAKING the DECISION to Deny a Life Saving Treatment to a Patient – because they are Not Covered by Insurance or have the money in hand – RESULTING in DEATH!?
Ms. Haines is the Chairperson of the Health Policy Committee and also a member of the Families, Children and Seniors Committee.
She is supposed to be “looking-out” for OUR Best Interest!
Instead, she is looking out for BIG MONEY and Special Interest Groups.
This Is My Body
A Woman’s Right to Decide what is in HER best interest!

Women should be treated with respect and cared forjust for the simple reason . . . They ARE the Care Givers of the World! God has given women the most important job of all, and they need to be protected. Women know instinctively what their bodies are telling them! So why should anyone including “Lawmakers” tell women they are not entitled to have the available services THEY Need in order to take care of themselves? Do These People know something that the rest of Us don’t know? . Are They Walking in the Shoes that a Woman Walks In? I think NOT!
I SUPPORT PLANNED PARENTHOOD
And, They Support Me!
Does She Really Care?
IF she “really cared” about the Seniors,
WHY did She Vote in favor of . . .
TAXING the Retired Senior Citizens Pensions!
Did you know “Gail Haines” the current/incumbent (R) State Rep of District 43,
Voted in Favor of Public Act 38 which was signed into law on May 25th, 2011???
This “new tax law” assaulted our Senior Citizens with a Senior Pension Tax on their retirement income! And, to add insult to injury, this new tax law also created an additional increase in Property Taxes on our Senior Citizens Retirement Homes!
Both new Tax increases went into effect January 1st, 2012!
WHAT WAS SHE THINKING ?
It’s already hard enough for many seniors to meet the financial demands they face in their everyday living, let alone worrying about Medical Bills, Prescriptions, Insurance, Utilities, Groceries, and final expenses!

PUBLIC ACT 38 of 2011
If She Really Cared, WHY is her name on this list?
Haines is On the Record for VOTING YES!
To TAX Our Senior Citizen’s Pensions and Increase Their Property Taxes!
Shame on You!
. . . and, “she talks” about helping-out our seniors!
It’s Time to REFORM TAXES,
the HIGH COST of LIVING
and SHRINKING BENEFITS !!!
Give Seniors the Respect and Confidence they Deserve!
Does She Really Care?
IF she really cared about Teachers, WHY did She Vote in Favor of House Bill 4627! This Bill allows “Schools” to decide WHO they will keep and promote and WHO they will get rid of! As she puts it, “the bad teachers”!
Haines totally misses the grade on this one!
Rep. Haines – A Retired Teacher
Turns Her Back On Peers
VOTES in Favor for HB 4627
SCHOOLS Choose WHICH Teachers to Get Rid-Of!
Collective Bargaining negotiated her Benefits and Pension!
. . . Dauh!!
She must be one of those “Bad Teachers”
who had to quit before they ”kicked-her” Out-The-Door!
HOUSE BILL 4627 – Roll Call 171
You FAILED this Test, Mz. Haines!
The Michigan Education Association
American Federation of Teachers, Michigan
I have been chosen and endorsed,
to be Their Voice!
The strong leader they need to Protect their Rights
and for Collective Bargaining!
Does She Really Care?
IF she really cared, about the Hard Working Middle Class WHY does She Support “Right To Work” for Michigan! IF that takes hold in Michigan, it will jeopardize benefits, financial welfare and the safety of All Michigan Workers! It will allow Big Businesses and Large Corporations and to “Call the Shots” in their favor, on every decision made regarding the treatment and well being of ALL Michigan Workers!
She SHOULD be doing everything possible to HELP the people who elected her into office, instead of making Life even harder for the Working Middle Class! So many people are struggling to make ends meet! Pay-Cuts, Reduced Benefits and Loss of Work are not helping Michigan to get back on her feet!
Let’s put the Back-Bone back into Our Economy
with good paying jobs!
It’s time Lansing’s Majority Party Leaders feel the affects of their decisions! Time for them to take a Pay-Cut! The GOP has lost touch with the People of Michigan! Too many of them have been bought-off by Lobbyist representing High Power Special Interest Groups - These Are Not the People We Elected into Office to Represent US!
Protects ALL Michigan Families!
Giving workers the Right to Negotiate Fair Wages and Benefits.
Working Together to Build a Better Tomorrow!
where as . . .
Voted to Unravel the State’s Middle Class
Flatten Wages and Crush Workers’ Rights!
I have earned the 2012 Endorsements from:
UAW Region 1 – International Union
The United Automobile Aerospace & Agricultural Implement
Workers of America
American Federation of Labor & Congress of Industrial Organizations
My Reputation at GM Truck and Bus as a UAW Leader for 18 years representing 9,600 employees – PROVES I take my work seriously! Just ASK ANYONE who has ever known or worked with me. They’ll tell you – NEIL BILLINGTON always kept his word and he made his Priority One the People he Represented! That’s why they called him, ” H A M M E R “ he got the Job Done Right NOW ! Before Retiring in 1992 with 28 1/4 years invested in GM, a Management Level 6 status was achieved.
We need Good Strong Leadership in Lansing
and that’s what you will get with me!
United We Stand!

Does She Really Care?
IF she really cared about Michigan and Protecting Our Great Lakes, WHY is She allowing “Her Party” to continue delaying the necessary action needed to Stop Big OIL Companies from buying-up all of the beautiful land and water ways that we call home?
In doing so, She is endangering the Well Being and Public Safety of ALL of US!
She Votes in favor of FRACKING!
There is a strangle hold in Lansing with the House Majority
keeping a “lid” on things!
This Is JUST Plain Wrong!!
It might be alright to have a big Oil Rig in YOUR Lake
but, you’ll never find one on hers!

You Have My Word!
You CAN Depend on me to Protect
the Citizens of Michigan!
I AM Against the un-ethical practices of Big OIL Corporations
trying to make Profit$ from
Our Great State with total disregard for
the Life It Will Destroy!
What the Michigan Legi$lature does not want you to know. . .
Is now happening in North Dakota and other once beautiful places to live,
AND it will happen here in Michigan too!
Viewer discretion is advised.
Don’t wait until it is too late to do something!
Because of Man’s Greed for Money and Power,
Mother Earth will soon look like
all other uninhabited planets
in the universe!
There are SO many more Important Issues
to add to this List of things . . .
BUT . . .
IF SHE “REALLY CARED” SHE WOULDN’T HAVE!!
