Saturday offers opportunity to see and hear from Mark Schauer
Lenawee County residents have the opportunity to meet their next U.S. Congressmen with a pair of town hall meetings set for Saturday with current state Sen. Mark Schauer, D-Battle Creek.
Schauer is leading his extremist opponent in the far-flung 7th Congressional District, but he is not quite as well-known in Tim Walberg's home county of Lenawee. But dedicated volunteers like me are changing that with the grunt work of going door-to-door.
You can meet Mark and still have time to see the MSU-Michigan football game on Saturday. Bring your friends and family, and especially undecided voters. He will be at the Lenawee County UAW Labor Hall, 1360 W Beecher St. in Adrian, at 12:30 p.m. Saturday Oct. 25. He will be in Blissfield at 2:30 p.m. at Beckey's Kountry Kitchen, 631 W Adrian – or US 223 across from the Coachlight Plaza. They have very good food; I have eaten there a few times.
Schauer will actually start the day in Hillsdale at the Hillsdale Community Library, 11 E. Bacon St., at 10 a.m.
The town halls will be a preclude to the first televised debate sponsored by Lansing TV station WLNS at 8 p.m. Saturday at Jackson High School, 544 Wildwood Ave, Jackson. It can also be viewed live at the station web site.
Other Town Hall meetings will be held Monday, Oct. 27 at 5:30 p.m. at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) hall at 7920 Jackson Rd. in Scio Township. He will be appearing with U.S. Sen. Carl Levin.
He will be in Battle Creek at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Barista Blues Cafe, 21 W. Michigan Ave. He will be with U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow at 5 p.m. Wednesday in Delta Township, 7711 W. Saginaw Hwy. He will be in Jackson at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Jackson Coffee Company, 201 S. Mechanic.
