The Real War on Women

As a little girl, I loved working alongside Grandma Jenny at our family motel.  Grandma was not the typical woman of her time; she helped run the family business, which was a rarity. Her and grandpa were a true team, with grandpa running the day-to-day operations of the motel, and grandma managing the books.  I helped her clean the rooms and was thrilled just to be a member of the family team.

After college, I became the motel manager, and it was Grandma Jenny who taught me that with hard work, women could not only succeed, but also excel in the workplace.  Ever since I was a young girl — standing on the stool at the kitchen sink doing dishes — I’ve kept Grandma Jenny’s advice with me.

When Washington politicians like Congressman Peters and Barack Obama sit in their offices in Washington, D.C. to talk about the struggles Michigan women face, I think of Grandma Jenny and chuckle. The fact is that these men don’t understand this struggle and have no idea what a war on women really is. (more…)

Terri Lynn Land Outraises Gary Peters… Again

By on April 16, 2014 |

On Tuesday, MLive Media Group reported that Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Terri Lynn Land outraised her opponent, Democratic Congressman Gary Peters, $1.5 million to $1.35 million.

“Terri is gaining support from hard-working families across Michigan because she shares their values and they know they can trust her as a mom, small business owner and public servant to go to Washington and advocate for them,” said Heather Swift, spokeswoman for Terri Lynn Land. “Terri is leading in fundraising and in the polls; almost every poll this year has found her ahead of Congressman Peters. And thanks to hard-working grassroots and the support of tens of thousands of Michigan families from all 83 counties, Terri was the first candidate to file to be on the ballot. It is clear that Terri has all the momentum in the race to become Michigan’s next U.S. Senator.”


Terri Lynn Land Leads by Six in New Poll

By on April 15, 2014 |

A new poll conducted by Mitchell Research and Communications finds Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land leading her Democratic opponent, Congressman Gary Peters, by 6 points (44-38). The poll was conducted on April 9th with a margin of error +/- 2.56 percent.

“Terri has all the momentum in the race because Michigan families trust her as a mom and small business owner to bring their values to Washington, D.C.,” said Heather Swift, spokeswoman for Terri Lynn Land. “Despite spending over a million dollars, and Harry Reid spending millions more on his behalf, Gary Peters is still trailing Terri in the polls. While Terri lays out a clear vision for a stronger economy with more jobs and more opportunity, Gary Peters’ only idea is to distract Michigan voters from his long record of higher taxes, higher spending and support for ObamaCare.”
