His campaign has taken him many places. Like the Birmingham Farmer's Market where he has been most Sunday's before slipping off to attend Noon Mass at Holy Name Church. McCready a Seaholm and Western Michigan graduate (he actually worked his way through the latter) owns a business in Birmingham.
He also gets to Birmingham City Commission meets when he can and attended the second annual Baldwin Library's Books and Bites fundraiser.
A small business owner himself McCready has been endorsed by the Michigan Retailers Association, Small Business Association of Michigan, National Federation of Independent Business,Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce.
Last week in West Bloomfield McCready attended a Gala at a Dress Shop on Orchard Lake Road.
The next night in Bloomfield Township (Mike grew up Bloomfield Village) he was at the Republican Victory Center on Woodward south of Square Lake making telephone calls for the Romney Ryan ticket and taking in the sights which included Senate Candidate Pete Hoekstra and Senator John McCain.
Then it was on to a Bloomfield Hills Schools District Community Partnership meeting. The Partnership committees were founded to bring the community and school system together. They are open to anyone. You can come to as few or as many for as long as you like.There are four separate committees that discuss different topics. While the committees are not in themselves legislative or policy making bodies their input has guided the school Board and school district administration in making decision making. They have also been good source for future leadership. School Board candidate Howard Baron and School Board Member Joan Berndt have been active in the Community Partnerships.
The one McCready attended was the the Legislative Committee which discusses the school district's relationship with Lansing vis a vis various State mandates and initiatives. The perfect topic for resident McCready(16 years in the City of Bloomfield Hills) and a would be State Rep . Below Mike is far left participating in a break out session.
Thursday was lunch with the big boys at New opened Bagger Dave's ( Telegraph and Maple where the Kroger's used to be).The Purpose? Create more business opportunities and jobs in the 40th district.
