Last Thursday afternoon, June 24, Rockford’s Frenz Coffee House hosted a “Meet and Greet” for Michigan House of Representative hopeful, Peter MacGregor.
MacGregor, a Republican who is currently serving as Cannon Township Supervisor, is running for the term-limited 73rd District seat of Rep. Tom Pearce.
The first hurdle in what will be an arduous campaign is that of being chosen by voters in the August 3 Primary Election. MacGregor is but one of nine vying to be the Republican candidate on the ballot in the important November 2 General Election. With so many hats in the ring, this primary will be very contentious and result in an extremely splintered vote. Every vote counts. Your single vote might well be the one that puts your choice over the top.
At the Frenz gathering, with wife Chrissie at his side, MacGregor met with friends, supporters and others who just wanted to get a feel for the man and just what he stands for. Many in attendance that afternoon were members of the Friends of the White Pine Trail. MacGregor, it seems, is no stranger to the trail, having lost 57 pounds in the past year and a half by regularly jogging the Rockford section of the White Pine Trail (WPT).
Fit and trim this afternoon he was joined by Rep. Tom Pearce along with Chairman Dave Heyboer and Kerry Kilpatrick from the “Friends.” Pearce had previously given his election endorsement to MacGregor and was present in a strong show of support for his friend.
In addition to numerous endorsements from many quarters, MacGregor was pleased to announce that that very day he had received the endorsements of the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce PAC and the Michigan Farm Bureau.
For the better part of two hours, questions were given to and answered by MacGregor. Judging from the smiles on the faces of those in attendance at the close of the meeting, all were pleased by what they had heard.
