A year ago, local citizens challenged our Congressman, GOP Representative John Moolenaar, to host a townhall meeting where citizens could voice concerns.
That meeting was very successful for citizens, but not comfortable for Mr. Moolenaar. It is not likely he will do it again during this election cycle.
But the issues grow only more urgent.
Many Americans are deeply worried about a Russian cyberattack on American Democracy, just yesterday, all leading Trump-appointed intelligence agency heads agreed that our elections continue to be under attack. But Mr. Trump has not made any directive to counter that attack, in fact, the President refuses to activate sanctions that have been ordered by overwhelming vote in both houses of Congress.
This initiative will challenge Rep. Moolenaar to answer the question - "What is John Moolenaar doing to protect Elections against Russian attack".
By cross promoting a billboard campaign, through mainstream and social media, we hope to force local media to engage on the issue, and demand an answer to this most basic question of national security.
According to inquiries I have made, billboards locally can be leased for 4 weeks, at price points of about a thousand, and 2500 dollars. We could begin a campaign as soon as end of March or end of April.
