    But you are a Democrat sir and I can no longer support that party. It has proven itself time and again to be corrupt both in practices and morals. If you ran independent I’d have considered you.

    I really like you, I’m not a fan of the EM either but I don’t play party favorites, I like Viviano for this vote but I just want to encourage you to keep fighting and representing. I definitely appreciate your work in the political system and even though I don’t think this position is best suited for you I do think you have a great voice to offer the community. Good luck in the running!

    WELL…. we are getting closer to the big day. My commitment is to once again reach out to family, friends, colleagues and ask them to REMEMBER the Honorable Judge Frank S. Szymanski. This will be the third time I have used a “spot light”
    to focus on this request.

    This email and text Broadcast will be generated to Michigan residences AND out of state residences who I know still have Michigan contacts. This broadcast will be generated Sunday between 6pm and 8pm eastern time. This is the window that will allow them time to “pass the word”.

    See you soon

    Best Regards,
