Madison Heights: Rally

Writing on Eclectablog, Chris Savage reports on a recent gathering sponsored by Organizing for America (OFA) and Health Care for American NOW! (HCAN), held in Madison Heights in southeastern Michigan. The rally called for Congress to take action on jobs for Michigan. Savage, a Dexter resident, described the remarks of Congressman John Conyers, Jr., a Democrat who represents Michigan’s 14th District, and addressed the gathering: “Reading off an attached label he said, ‘We need real reform, not small potatoes’. The bag of potatoes was a gift from a constituent who was trying to get his attention and clearly succeeded.” [Source]
