Gina Johnsen, candidate for State Representative, signs Contract with Michigan

March 17, 2022: Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced today that Gina Johnsen, candidate for State Representative, has signed its Contract with Michigan. If elected, Johnsen pledged to honor the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions and work to restore election integrity throughout the state. 

Johnsen, a small business owner and community service leader, signed the pledge, saying, “I am running for office to fight for good governance in every level of the political system. We must restore confidence in our system of voting in order to sustain our republic.”  

Mike Lindell, founder and CEO of My Pillow, Inc., threw his support behind Johnsen, and wrote, “I am honored to endorse Gina Johnsen in her bid to represent the citizens of Michigan’s 78th House District.” District 78, under the newly redistricted maps, encompasses Lowell, Lake Odessa, Ionia, Portland, Clarksville, Hastings, Nashville, Kalamo, Sunfield, and Mulliken.

Johnsen credited Professor William Wagner, Attorney Dave Kallman, and Senator Patrick Colbeck for convincing her to run for office. 

“We need qualified people like Gina,” Wagner confirmed. “Her strong background in business and community service will equip her to make the right legislative decisions for Michigan.”

Johnsen joins a growing list of Candidate Signatories to the Contract with Michigan. In signing, she pledged her commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs: 

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty
  10. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights
  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes.
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

“This is an exciting yet challenging campaign year, with more new voters than I’ve seen before in my lifetime. We can win this, and restore our freedoms and opportunities.”

Johnsen and her campaign supporters are busy running a successful campaign to win the election in November 2022.

March 2, 2022. Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced that Ryan Berman, candidate for Michigan Attorney General 2022, has signed its Contract with Michigan. If elected, Berman pledged to honor the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions and work to restore election integrity throughout the state. 

Berman, an attorney and current State Representative for District 39, signed the pledge in the presence of Shane Trejo and Amber Harris of the Rescue Michigan Coalition on February 15, 2022. Berman, a Republican attorney and counselor at law whose general practice operates in Bloomfield Hills, was elected state representative in 2018. 

“I felt compelled to run for Michigan attorney general after Dana Nessel stood by while Governor Whitmer claimed unconstitutional emergency powers that she wielded to restrict our freedoms and decimate our economy,”Berman said. “If I were attorney general last year, no one would’ve been forced to close their businesses or have had to choose between providing for their families or risk sanctions.” 

“Ryan has a tremendous background as a reserve police officer and special prosecutor,” Shane Trejo, Operations Director for the Rescue Michigan Coalition and Chairman of the 11th Congressional District Republican Party, added. “He has an excellent conservative voting record as a lawmaker, demonstrating extensive knowledge of our fundamental constitutional rights and the importance of the rule of law. He is demonstrating great leadership by signing onto the PIME Pledge during his run for Attorney General.” 

Berman credited his personal experiences for convincing him to run for Attorney General. “I have an extensive background in law enforcement and 17 years as a licensed attorney in private practice. I’ve represented businesses and individuals, and handled both civil and criminal law matters. From the private sector to public service, my varied background puts me in a unique position to serve as Michigan’s next attorney general.”

Berman joins a growing list of Candidate Signatories to the Contract with Michigan, co-sponsored by nine grassroots organizations (below). In signing, he pledged his commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs:

  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes.
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

“Many of these issues I’ve already worked on in the Michigan Legislature. Whether strengthening or protecting them, it’s easy to look up and check my voting record in regard to them.”

Berman is seeking the Republican nomination at the party’s Endorsement convention on April 23.

In signing the pledge, Boone, a grassroots conservative activist, said, “I felt compelled to run for Commissioner after attending multiple Kent County Commissioner Board meetings and speaking out for concerned parents and citizens, and learning about the role of the Board of Commissioners within Kent County, and then realizing that this would be the perfect place for me to BE that voice that could turn words into positive action.”

Tom Antor, current sitting Kent County Commissioner for District 2, spoke enthusiastically of Boone. “Stefanie is a tireless worker, a fearless and unapologetic parent who is simply trying to protect her kids and our quality of life here in Kent County. We need more people like Stefanie to run for public office and take back the government from the establishment at every level.”

Boone credited her personal experience for prompting her to run for office. “I have worked my entire life for this moment and feel led to take this stand for those who cannot. My experience as a schoolteacher, mother of six, wife, business owner and manager, co-worker, and friend within Kent County, the place I grew up, has given me the tools I need and the confidence I have to be a voice for my community.”

In signing, Boone pledged her commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs: 

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government

 “I am proud to stand by these words I have acknowledged and will back them through my actions,” Boone said.

Jayme McElvany of Let Them Play MI agreed. “Stefanie’s love for God, our country, and freedom is unwavering. She will fight to bring common sense, morals and parental rights back into our society at all levels.” 

Boone said many of her supporters are running their own campaigns for Board of Education, Board of Commissioners, State Representative, and even for Governor of Michigan. She keeps busy, she says, “holding area school boards and administrators accountable for transparency and truth in education, to raise our children in a wholesome and safe learning environment, while preserving Conservative values.”

Boone anchors two organized parent groups, Forest Hills for JUST Education, and Lowell Kids 1st. She attends Kent County Board of Commissioners meetings, Township and City meetings, as well as other area meetings and events, “to keep abreast of current events, concerns, and actions taken, and to hold our elected officials accountable to their oath of office.” For more information on Boone, go to https://booneforkent5.com.

Jonathan Lindsey, candidate for Michigan Senate, signs Contract with Michigan

Jonathan Lindsey, candidate for Michigan Senate, signs Contract with Michigan.

Feb. 23, 2021. Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections announces that Jonathan Lindsey, a Donald Trump-endorsed candidate for Michigan State Senate 2022, signed PIME’s Contract with Michigan on February 12, 2022. If elected, Lindsey, a Special Forces veteran and America First Republican, pledged to honor the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions and to work to restore election integrity throughout the state. 

“I’m running for state Senate because our elected officials have shown they lack the courage and conviction to stand against the radical woke mob of the left,” Lindsey, a graduate of Yale University with a degree in political science, said.

“I signed the pledge because I stand behind the Constitution. From corrupt elections to COVID-19 tyranny, our self-serving officials have failed to stand for the people’s rights.”

Lindsey enlisted in the United States Army after graduating from Yale. While in the military, he completed infantry training, airborne school, special forces selection and assessment, and the special forces qualification course. He ultimately earned the coveted Green Beret.

During his time in the U.S. Army Special Forces, Lindsey served in three combat deployments, one in Afghanistan and two in the Middle East. He was recognized with a Bronze Star, a Joint Service Commendation Medal, and various other awards. After his honorable discharge from the Army in 2016, Lindsey worked as an executive in the private sector. 

To top off Lindsey’s credentials, he was the first 2022 candidate in Michigan to receive the much-coveted endorsement of former President Donald J. Trump. “We need a warrior like Jonathan Lindsey to uphold our America First agenda. Jonathan has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” Trump wrote.

“It is not enough that our leaders claim to share our values,” Lindsey said. “We need leaders who are ready and willing to fight for them.” 

The native of Branch County is running in Michigan’s new 17th State Senate District, which includes portions of Jackson, Hillsdale, Calhoun, and Berrien Counties as well as all of Branch, St. Joe, and Cass Counties. 

Lindsey credited his personal experiences for convincing him to throw his hat into the ring. “I helped people in Afghanistan secure their rights, including fair elections. When I saw what happened in the 2020 election here in the States, I thought, This looks like a third-world country. What government comes out right after an election and declares the most secure election in history? Dictatorships, that’s who: Iran, Venezuela, Russia.”  

Lindsey joins a growing list of  Candidate Signatories to the Contract with Michigan. In signing, he pledged his commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs: 

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty
  10. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights
  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes.
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

“I’m proud to sign the contract with Michigan.   I’m grateful for the hard work the citizen activists at PIME have done over the last year.  It really is an incredible organization of great Americans working hard to save our state and save our country.”

When asked about his greatest achievements in life, Lindsey is quick to respond. “My marriage to Allison and becoming a father to two amazing children.” Lindsey married Allison Laffer Lindsey in 2015 and became a father in 2016 and again in 2018. 

“All of my goals for service to this country are made with them in mind. What kind of America will I leave behind for them and future generations?” 

Lindsey and his supporters are gearing up for a grassroots campaign focused on the people, not on the political establishment. More information about candidate Lindsey’s campaign is available at https://WeNeedAWarrior.com.

Tami Carlone, candidate for State Board of Education signs Contract with Michigan

Feb. 5, 2022: Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced today that Tami Carlone, candidate for State Board of Education, has signed the Contract with Michigan

 When presented with the contract and reading it, Carlone exclaimed, “Sign me up! I stand for this contract wholeheartedly. This details some of the founding principles I fight so hard for every day of my life.” 

Straight-talker Carlone is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and seven of her relatives served in the Revolutionary War. More family members served in the military, and her cousin was Chief of the US Border Patrol during the Kennedy Administration.

A certified public accountant and long-term conservative activist, Carlone indicated she decided to run for one of the two vacant seats on the State Board of Education because the board “is in dire need of a conservative majority, so it can best serve the students of Michigan, and that is my goal. We must give our children truth and excellence in their education. Their futures and the future of our state and nation depend on it.”

If elected, Carlone said her top goal will be to reverse the BOE’s recent decision to support the teaching of 1619 Project-like ideology. 

“We need to stop teaching critical race theory and the 1619 Project or anything related to those things,” she declared. “Instead, we should institute the accurate teaching of American history and American exceptionalism. Our students must know what made America great. They must be clear on the reality of the alternatives.” 

Carlone said students must not be taught that, based on their skin color, they are either racists or victims, or that our country is rotten to the core, like they are now being taught. “Teaching our entire population those things and teaching them to hate guns is a great way to bring a nation down.”

Additional goals included outlawing “indoctrination of all kinds and making sure teachers that do it are fired,” “stopping anything that is unhealthy for our students,” and returning to the pursuit of academic excellence in education for every child, getting out of Common Core, and instilling strict discipline policies in Michigan’s schools.

Carlone joined a growing list of Candidate Signatories to the Contract with Michiganauthored by PIME and co-sponsored by nine other grassroots organizations (see logos in contract). In signing, she pledged his commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs: 

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty

Dr. Linda Lee Tarver, candidate for State Board of Education signs Contract with Michigan

Feb. 4, 2022: Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced today that Dr. Linda Lee Tarver, candidate for State Board of Education, has signed the Contract with Michigan

Tarver smiled at learning that Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections prepared the initial Contract and then eight additional grassroots organizations stepped forward as cosponsors (see logos in Contract). 

“PIME is a group I have had the pleasure of supporting since its early meetings,” she said, breaking into her characteristic smile. “The 12 pillars encompass almost all of the areas pursued by our founding fathers and protected by patriots.” Tarver summarized the contract’s pillars as election integrity, free speech, right to bear arms, states’ rights, privacy, due process, constitutional education, private property, protecting US sovereignty, enshrine nuclear family, job creation, and a secure border. 

Tarver, an  election integrity expert and businesswoman, may often be found speaking at statewide and national events. She holds a doctorate in theology and education, has authored two Christian books, and owns Tarver Consulting. 

She credits the federal government’s behavior for tipping the scales for her to throw her hat into the ring to fill one of the State Board of Education’s two vacant seats. “They’re poised to treat parents as enemy combatants and terrorists.” 

Married and mother of two, Tarver is renowned for her no-nonsense, straight talk. “My top goal, if elected,” she said, “will be to ensure students return to their classrooms. Their lives depend on it.” She went on to explain that schools like Detroit and Flint have become crime scenes in which children are the victims. “I will push for an immediate assessment of academic deficits and the social, emotional, physical, and financial damage done. This timeline must be aggressive to provide surgical-like remedies to help our children.”

“Critical race theory, revisionist liberal history, the lack of constitutional education in our classrooms–There’s much work to do.” Tarver spoke of the soft bigotry of low expectations and the school-to-prison pipeline. “The pathetic reality is that 92% of Detroit third graders can’t read. Can you believe children are suing for the right to read? The failures in public education lead to prison, poverty, and pain.” 

The lockdowns made the situation worse, Tarver stated. “A high majority of child abuse and neglect reports come from teachers. Virtual classrooms and indefinite separation from schools place vulnerable children in the hands of abusers or traffickers.” 

Truancy from virtual education has grown so out of control that larger school districts no longer report it. “As little as 25% of students have checked into online classrooms with upward of 75% of students missing in action.”

If elected, Tarver plans to stress curricula that return to the basics and focus on excellence in reading, writing, and mathematics. “Success in all other subjects depends on mastery of these foundations.” 

School choice? “Yes.”

Transparency? “Yes, communicating school data, honestly, accurately, understandably, and in a timely manner must be the new normal,” Tarver insisted. To learn more about candidate Tarver, visit https://lindatarver.com/.

“Im ready to serve again,” Jon Rocha said. “It should be an easy decision for every official who serves. I am humbled to be part of PIME’s vision for constitutionally strong legislators.” 

Jan 26, 2022: Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced today that Jon Rocha, a Trump-endorsed candidate for State House of Representatives in Michigan’s 87th District, has signed the Contract with Michigan.

If elected, Rocha pledged to honor both the United States and Michigan Constitutions and work to restore election integrity throughout the state. His district encompasses 25 townships, among them Lowell, Ionia, Hastings, and Portland.

Rocha’s immediate embrace of the contract was evident in his statement after signing. “When presented with an opportunity to sign the Contract with Michigan there was no hesitation.

Election integrity is essential to our Constitution, which is the bedrock of our founding principles,” he said, beaming with his characteristic winning smile. “Declaring I defend it was an easy decision. In fact, it should be an easy decision for every official who serves. I am humbled to be part of PIME’s vision for constitutionally strong legislators.” 

In his endorsement of Rocha on Nov. 19, 2021, former President Donald J. Trump wrote, “Jon is the kind of leader we need in Michigan: a fighter with courage….I want him to win, and I want all America First Patriots in support of Jon to get him into Lansing where he belongs.” 

Jo DeMarco, a resident of Kent County and active supporter of Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections, introduced Rocha to the Contract with Michigan. “Jon is born and raised in the 87th District, and except for his time in the Marine Corps, he’s lived there his whole life. He knows what’s needed to make the area thrive. When he’s elected to the House, I have no doubt he will succeed,” she said. “I knew Jon would want to sign the contract considering his commitment and service to our country, overwhelming patriotism, and love for his home roots.”

Rocha joined a growing list of Candidate Signatories to the Contract with Michiganauthored by PIME and co-sponsored by nine grassroots organizations (see logos in contract). In signing, he pledged his commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs: 

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty
  10. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights
  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections started with a handful of concerned citizens in January 2021. Since then, the group has grown to more than 520 supporters statewide. As a grassroots group committed to helping restore election integrity to Michigan elections, PIME analyzes election legislation with an eye toward closing gaps and opportunities for abuse by those who would undermine free and fair elections. The group works to achieve maximum transparency, checks and balances, ethics, and integrity in election law. PIME is a peaceful, issue-based, nonpartisan political movement that welcomes all who support election integrity and the US and Michigan Constitutions.

Jan. 24, 2022: Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced Angela Rigas, candidate for Michigan House of Representatives has signed its Contract with Michigan. If elected, Rigas pledged to honor the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions and work to restore election integrity throughout the state. Her district, the 79th, entails Caledonia, Byron Center, Gaines Townships in Kent County; Thornapple, Irving, Rutland townships in Barry County; and Leighton Township in Allegan County.

“I believe and live by everything in this pledge,” Rigas said as she signed it in the presence of attendees at a Patriot Breakfast held in Caledonia on January 14.

“I’m honored to have the endorsement from President J. Trump,” she said, and shared the document from him, dated Dec. 13, 2021: 

“I love people who love America and know we have to fight the Deep State to take America back. We need great leaders to rise up and continue that fight for our values. Angela Rigas is a committed fighter. She is a champion for America First and for documenting the 2020 voter fraud, and an amazing American. She embodies the spirit that made America great, and it is no surprise to me that she is related to Revolutionary War heroes. Mom of four boys, Angela stood toe to toe in court against Michigan’s disgraced shutdown Governor Gretchen Whitmer and crazed Attorney General Dana Nessel. She’s not afraid to fight and not afraid to lead. That’s exactly what Michigan needs right now. I wholeheartedly endorse Angela Rigas for Michigan State Representative.”

–Donald J. Trump

Jo DeMarco, a resident of Kent County and active supporter of Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections, introduced Rigas to the Contract with Michigan. “I’m enthusiastic about seeing Angela elected to the House,” she said. “Based on her values and patriotism, I knew she’d want to sign the contract.”

Ryan Kelley, candidate for Michigan governor, signs Contract with Michigan

Ryan D. Kelley signs the Contract with Michigan, following the candidate for governor’s presentation as featured speaker at Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME’s) monthly meeting, Oct. 9, 2021, in Stockbridge. 

Nov. 1, 2021: Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections (PIME) announced that Ryan D. Kelley, candidate for governor of Michigan 2022, has signed its Contract with Michigan. If elected, Kelley pledged to honor the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions and work to restore election integrity throughout the state. 

Kelley, PIME’s featured speaker at its October meeting, signed the pledge in the presence of attendees at the Stockbridge Activity Center. The Republican business owner who had never before sought public office explained that he felt compelled to run for governor after witnessing what appeared to be flagrant election law violations during the 2020 election.

“We need to restore election integrity, or we are going to lose our republic,” Kelley told the audience of PIME supporters. “A full forensic audit is necessary in order to find out what went right and what went wrong during the election.”  

Attendee Becky Mayer spoke enthusiastically of Kelley. “I hadn’t had the opportunity to know much about him until meeting him at a PIME meeting. He immediately had my vote when I learned of all he has been doing for election integrity since November 2020. He doesn’t just talk the talk; he walks the walk.” 

Kelley cited his personal experience with the current governor’s shutdowns as another factor prompting him to throw his hat into the ring. “She has no right to take away people’s livelihood, to shutter businesses that have taken a lifetime to build. She weaponized government bureaucracies against the people. As Michigan’s next governor, I will respect people’s rights, not violate them.”

Kelley joined a growing list of signatories to the Contract with Michigan, co-sponsored by nine grassroots organizations (below). In signing, he pledged his commitment to protecting and defending a dozen citizen rights and needs:

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty
  10. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights
  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes.
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

“Teaching critical race theory in our schools is indoctrinating our children to hate themselves and their country,” Kelley said. “As President Trump stated, CRT is a ‘program for national suicide.’ We need to fight to protect our medical freedoms and privacy, build a strong economy, and keep our country strong.”

Meeting emcee Lori Zick, a member of PIME’s Executive Committee and resident of Ingham County, agreed. “Ryan Kelley seems authentic, and his policies align with my beliefs. He appears to have a lot of energy and determination to fight to return our state to one that we can be proud of. I am following Ryan Kelley on Telegram, and I am learning more about him. I like what I see.”

Kelley and his supporters are circulating nominating petitions at events spanning the state. In order to run for governor or senator of Michigan, a candidate must submit at least 15,000 valid signatures from registered voters in each of at least half of the state’s 14 congressional districts. Voters may sign only one candidate for governor’s petition. 

When asked for her assessment, Kathy McClinchey, a PIME Executive Committee member and Jackson County resident, nodded approval. “What made me a believer was when he mentioned his young kids and another on the way. He will fight hard for them to have the America we all have known and love.”

Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections started with a handful of concerned citizens in January 2021. Since then, the group has grown to around 500 supporters, located primarily in Ingham, Eaton, and Jackson counties–and all around the state. As a grassroots group committed to helping restore election integrity to Michigan elections, PIME analyzes election legislation with an eye toward closing gaps and opportunities for abuse by those who would undermine free and fair elections.

Ralph Rebandt II signs Contract with Michigan at of Pure Integrity for Michigan Elections meeting.

Dear PIME,

As a candidate for Governor, I would be honored to sign this contract with Michigan. 
It is spot on; on point; and on my heart. If I had drafted a document myself, it would have been in total agreement with this.

Your group understands the threats, the issues, and the solutions needed to protect our State, and to return our State to righteousness. 

Thank you to all of you who had a part in drafting this document. When you get the final version, I will wholeheartedly sign with full commitment before God to seeing it executed when I am governor of Michigan.  

All for God’s glory,

Ralph A. Rebandt, II

Gina Johnsen, signatory Sunday, Aug. 22:

Gina Johnsen holds the signed Contract with Michigan, signed in Howell, MI, on Aug. 22.

On signing the Contract with Michigan on Aug. 22, 2021, Representative candidate Gina Johnsen (left) said, “After reading this document carefully, I am pleased to sign.”

Having worked in both the healthcare and insurance industries, she added, “We need to be vigilant. We need to be smart and organized and focused. This is a spiritual battle.”

Johnsen said she is committed to God and to the cause of stopping  governmental abuse. Too often, green energy is used as a front to expand government control, she said, and fighting for the right to life and defending the elderly are two of her priorities. She would like to see more churches offer kindergarten through 6th-grade education.

Contract with Michigan – Bob Scott

Contract with Michigan

In affixing my signature below, I, __Bob Scott,___Candidate for Governor__, of Michigan_____, (Candidate) do solemnly pledge my allegiance to the United States Constitution, to the Constitution of Michigan 1963 (Constitutions), and to the State and US Bills of Rights. In seeking public office, I pledge to serve honorably as a servant to my constituents in Michigan (State). Further, to restore the bonds of trust between the people and their elected representatives, I pledge to protect and defend citizen rights and needs as delineated below:

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government
  2. The right to free speech
  3. The right to keep and bear arms
  4. State rights
  5. The right to liberty and protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies
  6. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic
  7. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
  8. The right to private property
  9. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty 
  10. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights 
  11. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes. 
  12. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws

Description:

  1. The right to honest, transparent, fair, and accountable elections run by the State legislature, not by the federal government

Restore election integrity to Michigan elections. Establish fair and transparent elections. Ensure valid and fraud-free absentee ballots. Require photo identification, residency, citizenship, and clean voter rolls. Ensure the authenticity and chain of custody of every ballot. Prevent federal takeover of State election laws.

Defend State rights. The US Constitution and Michigan Constitution guarantee State rights to conduct elections within State boundaries. The State shall conduct all elections for all levels of government, including federal, state, county, township, and municipality.

  1. The right to free speech 

The First Amendment guarantees free speech. Government agencies must not directly or indirectly (as in collaborating with private industry or organizations) filter and stifle citizen dialogue or free speech.

While the First Amendment does not specifically apply to or govern private technology companies, the American people need their representatives to curtail large technology companies from filtering and stifling citizen dialogue and free speech.

Regulate Big Tech and social media companies like “common carrier” telecommunications services and public utilities. Require them to host user posts regardless of what the posts say, much like phone companies host all telephone calls regardless of content.

  1. The right to keep and bear arms

Defend the Second Amendment, which states, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” 

Candidate agrees to: Protect citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms. Stop the passage of new laws that make it harder for people to acquire firearms or ammunition, or that restrict/ban certain types of firearms or accessories. Oppose any effort to deprive individuals of their right to keep and bear arms without due process of law. Oppose the enactment of schemes such as firearm registration, waiting periods, and “universal background checks,” all of which undermine individual liberty as well as the security of our republic.

  1. State rights

Defend the Tenth Amendment, which expresses the principle of federalism, also known as states’ rights. This amendment states that the federal government has only those powers delegated to it by the Constitution. All other powers, not forbidden to the states by the Constitution, are reserved to each state.

Fight federal, State, and county government power grabs and protect local government authority.

  1. The right to liberty and the protection against invasion of privacy through the abuse of technology or bureaucratic agencies.

Though the Fourth Amendment does not explicitly protect the privacy of forms of communication that did not exist at the time of its writing, it explicitly guarantees citizens the right “to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

Candidate agrees to: Protect the Fourth Amendment, liberty, and privacy. Stop the politicization and overreach of government agencies. Ensure the government does not abuse technology, invade citizen privacy, or conduct unreasonable searches and seizures.

  1. The right to due process and the rule of law in an impartial and blind judicial system, and to funded and functional police and sheriff systems that protect the citizenry and the republic.

Support law and order. Support anti-crime packages to keep people secure in their neighborhoods and kids safe in their schools.

Enforce and uphold all constitutional protections and Sixth Amendment guarantees to make criminal prosecutions more accurate, fair, and legitimate. Stop the judicial system from weaponization against the citizenry and ensure the crimes of those in power receive justice.

Conduct legislative and administrative hearings under oath. Prosecute those who commit perjury to the fullest extent of the law.

Prevent citizens from being held as political prisoners without bail.

  1. The need for an educational system that nurtures student understanding of the noble principles in the US and State Constitutions, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Ensure that schools adopt educational curricula that teaches understanding of and appreciation for this nation’s dedication to the individual’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Prohibit teaching any form of critical theory (i.e., that one group is better than another) in our schools. Fine or suspend certifications of teachers who teach any form of critical theory (racism, classism, sexism, agism, etc.). Support the Hillsdale 1776 curriculum and reject the 1619 Project. Teach the hazards of communism.

  1. The right to private property

Defend the Fifth Amendment and the right to own private property. The right to private property forms the cornerstone of freedom, individuality, independence, and right to pursue happiness.

Support free enterprise and never shut down market sectors (e.g., as occurred during the 2020-2021 pandemic and caused devastation to entire industries, including entertainment, restaurants, and gyms). Stop government overreach from determining winners and losers and making business success reliant on government support or regulation.

  1. The right to protect the nation against invasion, and the need to preserve the nation’s sovereignty 

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that the US “shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion.” Acknowledge that the Chinese Communist Party and globalism represent an imminent threat and have been waging a long-term economic, political, and cultural war against the republic. Adjust trade, public, educational, scientific, and State policies to ensure the republic’s survival.

Article 1, Section 8 grants Congress the power to “provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States,” “to regulate commerce with foreign nations,” and to “define and punish offenses against the Law of Nations.” Neither the State nor US Constitutions can be upheld if their authorities are ceded to another entity. Do not cede the sovereignty of the US to an international body. No U.S. troops shall operate under U.N. command. No U.N. inspectors or troops are to be invited onto US soil.

Protect the environment and natural resources while simultaneously pursuing energy independence. Develop renewable power sources that supplement and do not undermine national security.

  1. The need to protect and defend the nuclear family and parental rights

Reinforce tax and social welfare programs to encourage nuclear families. Offer tax incentives for adoption and strengthen parental rights in their children’s education. Support an elderly dependent care tax credit to reinforce the central role of families in American society.

  1. The need to encourage job creation through pro-growth tax and monetary policies that adhere to fiscal responsibility with no new taxes.

Support a pro-growth tax code. Impose no new taxes. Adhere to fiscal responsibility. Stop unchecked government spending and the printing of money. This irresponsible behavior will lead to hyperinflation, wipe out the retirement savings of senior citizens, and lead to the destruction of the US dollar.

Support favorable tax policies and cut excess regulations to encourage job creation and wage enhancement. Encourage small business incentives and capital gains cuts. Eliminate the supplemental government unemployment and welfare incentives while employment opportunities are readily available. Provide financial encouragement, rather than discouragement, to potential workers to participate in the job market.

  1. The right to secure borders and the need to uphold and enforce immigration laws.

The first sentence of the US Constitution declares, “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

In a time of terrorism, drug cartels, human trafficking, and criminal gangs, the presence of millions of unidentified individuals in this country and state poses grave risks to the domestic tranquility, general welfare, and security of liberty to current citizens and their posterity.

Support secure borders and all ports of entry. Uphold and enforce immigration law. Stop the US government from enabling illegal immigrants to cross into the State. Restore and maintain the essential parts of our national security funding to strengthen national defense.

Comments/Remarks from Candidate: ­­­­­­­­­­­

In signing below, I agree to the above Contract with Michigan and commit my true and unbreakable oath of intent.
