ADAPT Present as McCain Visits Michigan
ADAPT-Michigan had a presence today at John McCain’s "by invitation only" appearance in Belleville, MI. Though we couldn’t get inside, five of us carried signs and chanted in front of the building and throughout the driveway/parking area. Secret Service booted us from the parking lot, but not before we managed to have an agent get the CCA summary into the hands of one of McCain’s staff people.
Susan and Teddy Fitzmaurice were interviewed by the local Belleville newspaper. Joe Stramondo and Scott Heinzman were interviewed by WWJ 950 AM news radio - the main news radio outlet in metro Detroit. WWJ reporter Pat Sweeting took pictures for their website, www.wwj.com with no guarantees we’d make the site. Jim Dillon ably assisted with sign making and handing out flyers reminding McCain we vote and want him to support CCA.
We were well positioned with signs as McCain’s motorcade left, so we know he saw us.
Not a bad bit of work for less than a day’s notice.
A camera phone picture is attached.
