I’m Back!

Hi there!

My long, unexpected blogging hiatus is finally over. Believe me, I did not plan to be away this long. Anyway, I have so much to tell you! I am full of rants and temper tantrums, random nothing, questions I still don’t know the answers to, politics, and all kinds of other stuff. And I can’t wait to get started.

It’s so good to be back.

How are things with you? What have you been up to during my two-year hiatus? Comment below or send me an email.

Vote La Cracha Handy for Flint Township Trustee

Hi there!  I know this post is different than what you’re used to on this blog, but I am excited to share my good news with everyone.  I am running as a Democrat for Trustee in Flint Township, Michigan.  You know, the mitten shaped state.  The only state where you can show people where you live at on your hand.

Here is my campaign page.

Three challenges lie ahead of me as a candidate, and if I am elected to a seat on the Flint Township Board of Trustees:

  1.  I am a first-time candidate
  2.  I am a minority
  3.  I have little political experience

However, none of the above will hinder me from serving my community if I am elected.

With that being said, I would love and appreciate your support.  If you know any registered voters residing in Flint, Township Michigan, then please spread the word that I am running for Trustee.  Tell you family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers.  If they are not registered to vote, then please encourage them to get registered so they can vote Democrats across the board in the upcoming elections.

I am looking for your support on August 4, 2020.  If you would like to make a small donation, then you can go here.  No amount is too small and all will be truly appreciated.

Hello to my fellow Michiganders living in the 5th Congressional District.  My name is LaCracha Handy (pronounced Lacrisha), and I am running for District Level Delegate for Joe Biden for the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in August 2020.

Not only am I am a lifelong Michigander,  but I have also been living in the 5th Congressional District since day one.  I am a full-time employee in the Emergency Room at an area hospital, and I have two teenage sons.  They both attend public schools and my youngest is special needs.

My priorities are:

  1. Special needs community
  2. Affordable health care
  3. Public education
  4. Retirement including pension and health insurance (I will be eligible for retirement     in a few years so I’m all for protecting retirees benefits)
  5. Medicare
  6. Social Security

If you live in the 5th Congressional District in Michigan and you are a current member of the Michigan Democratic Party, then I am asking for your support.

Thank you in advance.
