Campaign Kick-Off Bob Alexander for Congress, Thursday July 24, 2008



Change is coming to Mid-Michigan, and Bob Alexander is leading the way.

Bob believes Mid-Michigan deserves a representative who understands that the serious challenges facing its citizens require real solutions and immediate action. He wants to foster America’s energy independence, protect the environment, and safeguard Michigan jobs.

So when it came time to say goodbye to his 1995 Ford Escort – all 256,000 miles of it – Bob chose the Chevy Malibu hybrid: an American car driven by American innovation.

Made right here in the United States, the state-of-the-art Malibu Hybrid has a better MPG rating and a smaller carbon footprint than the Honda Accord. It reflects Bob’s dedication to American jobs, energy innovation, and environmental stewardship.

To kick off his campaign, Bob will take delivery of this new Chevy Malibu at Shaheen Chevrolet in Lansing at 9:00 AM on Thursday, July 24. From there, Bob will set off on his “Road Trip for Change,” visiting locations in all five counties of Michigan’s 8th District. Bob will share the campaign’s themes of American products, Michigan innovation, clean energy, and a clean environment. The day will finish with remarks at the GM Orion Assembly plant.

Bob, an East Lansing consultant and long-time community leader, is running for Congress because he knows Mid-Michigan demands a change after eight years of poor leadership under Mike Rogers and George Bush.

Bob will bring Michigan’s concerns to Washington, supporting working families and individuals, working for healthcare solutions, fighting for quality public education, and protecting our environment.
