Walberg in Tecumseh August 15

Apparently there's a robocall going around announcing that Congressman Tim Walberg will be in Tecumseh tomorrow, August 15, at Cal Zorn Park on Russell Road, 6 to 7 PM. (My source didn't sound sure on the time, so you might want to contact a district office if you're planning to attend.)

Stop by, enjoy the great outdoors in one of Tecumseh's largest parks, and ask Congressman Walberg some tough questions.

Also, for your reading pleasure, here's a letter to the editor that appeared in the Battle Creek Enquirer. I enjoyed it, so maybe you will too.

I think Tim Walberg must have had a very easy childhood. Apparently his mother, or anyone else for that matter, never explained to him that he can't have his cake and eat it too.

In a recent press release available on his Web site, Congressman Walberg "secured" funding ($500,000) for the Battle Creek airport in a transportation bill. The congressman must have thought, "Wow! What a nice cake to present to Calhoun County. Maybe they will vote for me the next time around."

Then Mr. Walberg must have thought, "Oh shoot! I need to be tough on government spending or else budget hawks in my district will throw me out as quickly as they threw out Joe Schwarz!"

Then perhaps he called his district aide, Chris Simmons, and asked, "Help Chris! I don't know what to do." Chris must have replied, "No need to worry representative. You can say that you support the funding, then vote against it. I do similar stuff on my radio show all the time!"

The congressman may have then replied, "Great idea, Chris! If anybody calls us out, we'll just blame the Battle Creek Enquirer for not being fair like we always do."

And so began the latest escapade with the Battle Creek Enquirer after they simply told Mr. Walberg that you can't have your cake and eat it, too.

Perhaps Congressman Walberg always got two cakes for his birthday - must be nice to live by a double standard.

Scott Brown,


UPDATE: In addition to being in Tecumseh tonight, Congressman Walberg will be in Adrian Township.
