Dexter — U.S. Congressional Candidate Steven Friday has announced his candidacy to unseat unpopular Congressman Tim Walberg in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District.
In what is sure to be a very exciting Democratic primary season and a turning point in elections in the state of Michigan, a group of grassroots organizations are supporting candidates to challenge the party establishment’s old way of electoral politics.
Steven Friday has begun organizing a grassroots team to mobilize the people of the 7th District who have become disenfranchised, disempowered, and apathetic about their chances of having an impact on the political system that so seriously negatively affects their lives.
“Too many people are struggling to survive the serious income and wealth inequality and lack of social justice that our current system has put in place.” Friday said, when speaking to protesters in Representative Walberg’s Jackson office. “The most vulnerable among us will be made to suffer. We are the warriors. We are the fighters. We must get the word out that there is a movement happening that will finally bring the power back to the people, ALL people. This is our fight and our campaign to lose.”
Friday’s team is made up of members from many local grassroots groups. Steve stated, “They have underestimated us for too long. Our skills, our talents, our passion, and our dedication to all of the people of this district will bring this movement to the forefront of local, state, and federal politics. Whether they are Democrats, Republicans, Independents or aligned with any party or group, there is a space for everyone on this team. We are human first and we must remember that our differences are our strength. We need to prevent ourselves from being divided up. This allows us to be controlled. We shall not be forgotten or thrown away any longer. We cannot be bought and sold like a commodity. We are here to take the power back! We are Human First!”
The primary election is Tuesday, August 7th, 2018. You can learn more about Steven Friday and his campaign by visiting www.fridayforuscongress.com.
