Enough Is Enough

Open The Offices!

I’m running for Secretary of State because enough is enough! Our current Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson would continue to make the 10,000,000 People of Michigan wait weeks or even months to see her staff at local offices – all AFTER booking an appointment online. 

That is unacceptable. This, and many other issues we will discuss between now and election day, is why I’m running to Open the Offices and Restore Integrity to the SOS.

About Representative Beau LaFave

My name is State Representative Beau LaFave, and I am going to be your next Secretary of State.

I was born and raised in Iron Mountain, MI (cross the Mighty Mac, turn left, continue to drive several more hours and you’ll be in the vicinity of my hometown). When I was born, I was air-lifted to and spent six weeks at Milwaukee Children’s Hospital with a threat to my survival. But I was a fighter, and I beat the odds.

Then when I was eighteen months old, I had to have my left leg amputated. I was not given a lot of hope for walking. But I beat those odds too.

I eventually graduated from Michigan State University and entered Wayne State University Law School, but I kept my eye on my hometown happenings – particularly the politics. Unfortunately, what I saw was a very popular Democrat Sheriff had declared for State Representative in an area that has ALWAYS alternated between a Democrat and Republican State Representative. And it was the Dem’s turn that year.

To make things worse, the Dems believed they had a good chance at majority that year. This would have meant a Democrat Speaker of the House and a Democrat Majority Floor Leader. 

I spent some time searching for a candidate who was willing and who could beat this popular Sheriff. Eventually, I realized that person was a 23 year-old law student at Wayne State University. So, I passed my finals, packed up, and went back home.

After winning a primary I wasn’t supposed to (beat those odds too!), I suddenly found myself one-on-one against that very popular Sheriff. And to make matters worse, the Sheriff had help – LOTS of help. You see, the Dems needed that seat to make majority. So they spent $600,000 in the cheapest media market this side of the Mississippi in order to make certain their man won. The odds were highly stacked in his favor.

But I’ve been fighting my entire life, and I learned as a child that huge odds against me could still be overcome. I couldn’t outspend that Sheriff, so I outworked him instead. I knocked on 15,000 doors, going through three pairs of shoes and two prosthetic legs in the process. And once again, I beat those odds.

Since then, I’ve been fighting for the people on the Upper Peninsula. When our current Secretary of State said she would accept ballots that arrived ten days beyond the due date, I sued her and won. When she declared no weapons would be allowed near the voting, I sued her and won. I have fought the Governor, the Attorney General, the lobbyists, the media, and other legislators time and time again. And I continue to beat the odds.

Now, you have three choices for the GOP nominee for Secretary of State. And any of the three of us would be better choice than Jocelyn Benson. But being a better option means nothing if you cannot beat Jocelyn Benson in November.

I ask you to consider what kind of fight you think the Dems will put up for this race. Do you think they’re mildly interested in the outcome, or do you think they will bring out the heavy artillery? 

They are going to bring out the big guns. And of all three candidates, I’m the only one who ever took on the full force of the Democrat Party and walked away a winner.

The odds are stacked against us.  And once again, I will beat those odds.

I ask for your support on April 23rd.
