Tea Party candidate announces bid 08.18.2010

Written by David Green.

Southern Michigan’s 7th Congressional District has one more candidate for voters to consider for the November General Election.

Dan Davis of Riga will represent the Tea Party and run against incumbent Mark Schauer (D) and challengers Tim Walberg (R) and Scott Augney of the Tax Payers Party.

Davis previously campaigned as an independent, but recently stated that the Tea Party provides voters with legitimate options outside of a two party process.

Davis stated that both Democrats and Republicans must share responsibility and blame for the serious issues facing the nation. He believes that control by one major party or the other has led to the establishment taking voters for granted.

Davis claims 30 years of experience in business, law enforcement and security. He has also owned and managed several business ventures and says that he understands the struggles of small businesses and entrepreneurs.

His “We are America” campaign will focus on reducing the size of government; reducing taxes; transparent governance; and increasing the production of energy through American coal, oil and natural gas.

More information is available at his campaign website, davis4america.com.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
