Ottawa Grassroots Defense Fund
On December 1, 2022 the Ottawa County Republican Party held its county convention to elect a new Executive Committee. The Ottawa County grassroots precinct delegates voted for 24 new Executive Committee members with an overwhelming supermajority vote. Nearly two weeks later on December 14, 2022, three individuals sued the Ottawa County Executive Committee.
Instead of consulting with the new Executive Committee, the current Interim-Chair of the Ottawa County Executive Committee retained a lawyer and then proceeded to enter into an agreement with the three plaintiffs to invalidate and remove the newly-elected Executive Committee, and nullify the supermajority vote of the precinct delegates. This agreement was reached without notice nor due process!
To overturn this fraudulent usurping of power we must immediately fight back, and we need your IMMEDIATE help to do it!
We need to raise $25,000 before December 30th as we consider all of the legal options before us. We are asking anyone who wishes to join us in this fight to contribute to this defense fund. The newly elected Executive Committee, and the delegates who elected them, must not be disenfranchised without legal recourse.
