We are the Benzie County Republican Party representing the 13 precincts that lie within Benzie County Michigan.

Our Action Center is up and running! Hours are Wednesday 4-7 and Saturdays 11-2.

Reverse PA 233 – Read the bill HERE. This new law, effective November 2024, forces local communities to go through the state when it comes to the zoning authority of utility-scale wind and solar projects. To “fast-track” the development of renewable energy projects, local voices were shut out of the conversation. The ability to decide where corporations place utilities like wind turbines, solar farms, and battery storage facilities should be decided by our own communities that we know best. For more information check out this WEBSITE.


From Joyfield Township Delegate Jim Evans: “I am collecting signatures in order to restore our right to vote locally on local land use issues regarding industrial wind, solar and battery storage. The State has removed our ability to decide – join me to make this a ballot issue in November. Please help stop this! Please call me (Jim Evans) at 231-871-0044 or email me at fortress@benzie.com I will come to you!!! I can also give you petitions to collect signatures from family, friends, church family, etc.”

We have less than 40 days to get this done!
Time is running out on our chance to change the law. Act now before it’s too late.
