It seems U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Rochester, Rochester Hills) of the 8th District doesn’t want his fellow congressman, David Trott, to get all the attention – at an April 13 town hall in Genoa Township in nearby Livingston County, Bishop failed to show, so organizers created a “Flat Mike” – like school kids’ favorite “Flat Stanley” – to represent him. Bishop has held a few town halls, cherry picking a few dozen or so constituents to speak with. A proposed Democratic challenger, Darlene Domanik of Brighton, spoke at a town hall in Brighton on April 11, which Bishop did not attend, asserting that the district needs “rise up” economics rather than “trickle down” economics. She’s an attorney who has specialized in child care facility law and child care providers, as well as environmental issues. Her key issues, she says at this point, are the environment, health care, education and the economy. That about covers everything.
