Find out what happens when fed-up citizens turn an engineer loose on the political swamp. The beginning of this century marked the "Lost Decade" for Michigan. More than a half million people fled the state, decreasing her Electoral College votes from eighteen to sixteen. Career politicians in both parties are clenching their gator-like jaws tighter and tighter on hard-working Michiganders. Instead of serving the common interests of the people who elected them, the politics-as-usual crowd is beholden to special interests that generously support their pursuit of power. That's what drove a successful aerospace engineer and small-business owner to get out of his comfort zone, run for office, and restore the voice of the people. Echoing President Trump's battle cry, Colbeck's strategy is to drain the swamp and rid Michigan of her entrenched "alligators." Michigan is on the verge of making a dramatic comeback. Colbeck's strategy for returning power to "We the People" is well on its way! In Wrestling Alligators, you will learn -How government really works. -How good people are seduced by the political swamp. -What happens when one attempts to drain the swamp. -How we can restore our faith in government.
