During his two terms as Governor of Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty used innovative and conservative leadership to balance the state’s budget, cut spending, reform health care and improve schools without raising taxes. Under his leadership, Minnesota had nation-leading health care, the highest school test scores, and a leading economy.
The Wayne 11th CDRC, under the leadership of Mr. Xuereb, offers community outreach in the district through various channels such as online social networking (Facebook); the Wayne 11th CDRC website, www.Wayne11th.com; recruiting, training and engaging over 800 precinct delegates; and hosting “awareness” forums throughout the district that informs the general public of the issues and mobilizes their support. “The Republican candidates seeking elective office this year, starting with our presumptive Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, offer hope for real change, from lowering taxes, to reforming government, to fostering more investment and jobs growth in our economy. That’s real change that Michigan and this country needs now,” Xuereb exclaimed.
