Apparently Congressman Tim Walberg (CD7) has been answering constituent phone calls this week as Congress works on limited resources during the government shutdown.
"It's all hands on deck for me and my staff - and that includes me helping with phone calls - as operations have been limited by the [Democrat controlled] Senate's unwillingness to discuss a compromise with the House. Most callers are appreciative that I'm here to listen to what they have to say as I work towards finding solutions to fund the government. My staff and I remain committed to providing excellent constituent and legislative services during this difficult period."emphasis mine.
Rep Walberg is also encouraging constituents to send him at email with their comments and concerns at: https://walberg.house.gov/contact/contactform.htm.
There are ample opportunities for other congressmen from Michigan to keep us informed here as well. hint hint

Lest anyone become confused about Fred Upton's positions on 'climate change', they might perhaps take time to read this at the Madison Project:
Yeah. Not so long ago either. The debate is over huh?"I have said at nearly every climate change hearing that for me I don't dispute the science. Right or wrong, the debate over the modeling and science appears to be over."
And people wonder why there isn't excitement in the elections any longer.
The Madison project points out what everyone should know, that Upton would be as comfortable on the left side of the aisle as he is presumably, by voting with the Republican Caucus. Aside from the several extreme environmental in-your-face regulatory votes where he did in fact jump ship and vote left of center. Like THIS VOTE. Or even a famous vote banning the incandescent bulb, and costing US Jobs in the process.
Yay! Pelosi! Woot! Aren't you proud???!
Retire Fred. Your heretical pandering to the big government left ideals is pathetic.
I'm with the Madison Project. I wonder if it isn't time to go here?: DONATE TO HOOGENDYK?

April 17, 201 there was a meet the people candidate's forum at the Mill Creek elementary school.
This is merely two of several candidates running for the 1st US Congressional district. Scheduling conflicts apparently keeping republican candidate Benishek, and two Democrats (that we know of) from attending. These two are running for the seat to be vacated by Bart Stupak, who seeing the writing on the wall for his political career, decided to make it possible for other Democrats to pick up the seat.
The sound could be better, and as with some of the videos taken at the event, I could not compress without losing content, so they are broken into two parts.
The Two US Congressional Candidates from the Forum below the fold.
