Today, former State Representative Vera Rison and I are proud to join fellow elected leaders including Genesee County Commissioner Omar Sims and Flint City Council Vice President Dale Weighill to announce our endorsement of Eli Isaguirre for State Representative.
Eli Isaguirre is running in the special election to fill the seat vacated when my friend Jim Ananich was elected as a Michigan State Senator. It is essential we have a strong partner in Lansing and Eli is the best person for the position. I ask for your support for Eli and here’s why.
Eli has had many opportunities because of a great education, but his story is too rare in Michigan today. He knows that the children in our community deserve every opportunity to succeed. Over the past two years, we have seen tremendous cuts to education and other vital services along with a shift in tax burden onto middle class families. This is the wrong direction for Michigan.
Vera and I know that Eli Isaguirre will be a true champion for Flint and Genesee County, starting with a better education system. Eli will fight to restore funding to our public schools with dollars focused on the classroom, so that kids have the best teachers, books and technology. And he will work to make college more affordable, so that graduates can focus on their careers and not be paralyzed by a mountain of student loan debt upon graduation.
We are ready to work with Eli to build a better Flint and Genesee County with great schools, good jobs, and opportunities for all. Are you with us?
Thanks for all your help and continuing to support our work to secure a bright future for Flint and Genesee County in Michigan.

This is an exciting time in my life and in Flint. I am celebrating my birthday this month and I hope you will join me at the newest restaurant in downtown Flint for the party. Table & Tap will be opening in April so this is your chance to come and get a preview of what will soon be known as the best urban barbecue and tap house in Michigan.
Wednesday, March 27th
5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Table & Tap
555 S. Saginaw Street
Table & Tap has 30 craft beverages, on tap of course, with something for everyone, from Frankenmuth Brewing Co. Blonde Ale to Arcadia Starboard Stout, from Vander Mill Hard Apple New Holland Dragons Milk. Plus there is Schmohz Sammie Rae Root Beer for the kids.
One of my first official acts as mayor in 2009 was to cut the ribbon at 501 Bar and Grill. Now with the opening of Table & Tap there will be a total of 6 new restaurants in downtown to accompany all the traditional favorites. We have a long way to go but the most difficult years are behind us. There is an energy and optimism this year in Flint. I am inviting you to come be part of the fun and excitement.
I am turning 39 this month so the suggested contribution is $39 per person or $100 to be listed as a host. There are ongoing costs associated with my campaign committee including the website, supplies, mailings, and advertisements, so I do appreciate your financial support.
Please make checks payable to Friends of Dayne Walling, PO Box 937, Flint, MI 48501 or contribute online at www.votewalling.com. Thanks for your friendship and support.
