Campaign Final Push
Words from the County Chair
Many ways to help....
You may be feeling overwhelmed by all the calls and emails asking for donations to various Democratic campaigns. It is easy to get frustrated with the seemingly endless requests. You know the importance of funding to assure success of our candidates. The stakes are high, so we stretch to meet the financial challenges. Please be patient with all your colleagues pleading for more of your financial resources. They are doing a vital job and they hate having to ask.
Money is vital but we have so much more to offer than just money. To make the greatest contribution, you might consider some of the vital opportunities for local action and leadership.
Staffing our local Dems office is my personal favorite volunteer activity. Many people drop by to get campaign signs, to choose buttons, to obtain bumper stickers and to show their support. Working at the office provides a wonderful opportunity to meet people and to become involved.
Our local, state and federal candidates also need help with phone calls, visiting strong Democratic voters and making sure we get out the vote in November. Behind the scenes opportunities include making campaign buttons, stuffing envelopes, preparing newsletters, working on computers, maintaining the office and preparing for events. There is vital work for all people and for all interests.
This November, Manistee County Dems will elect a new Chairperson, Vice Chair and Secretary. We are in desperate need of youth enthusiasm, seasoned experience and new ideas. You have great untapped potential that will not be unleashed unless you step forward.
As the campaign season progresses, please be kind and generous to our fellow Democrats asking for your financial support. Money is essential. But your most significant contribution may not be cash. Manistee County needs your time, your energy and your leadership.

Ken Falk in Battle for Sheriff
For over 24 years, I have been employed with the Manistee County Sheriff’s Office. I have experience in most of the positions within the Sheriff’s Office. For the past eight years, I have been the Manistee County Emergency Manager.
I have written and have been involved with numerous grants, bringing over $100,000 to Manistee County for public safety. I brought the Wireless Emergency Notification System (WENS) to Manistee County.
I’m running for the office of Sheriff because I feel I know Manistee County’s strengths and weaknesses, when dealing with public safety issues. I will continue the professionalism the Manistee County Sheriff's Office gives to our community. I have lived in Manistee County almost my entire life and want to keep this community as safe and prepared as possible.
