submitted by an angry delegate that wants to remain anonymous
The group is run by Matt Maddock, who unsuccessfully tried to become the 11th Congressional District Republican Committee Chairman, by hijacking the Oakland County Republican Convention in January. Mr. Maddock would have faced a race against current 11th Congressional District Republican Committee Chair Deb O'Hagan. Because of his behavior with the violation of Robert's Rules and Michigan Republican Party Rules, Maddock's portion of the convention was thrown out and he ended up with just a few votes at time of Chair election.
Continuing with his quest for power, and in this author's opinion a sore loser, Mr. Maddock aided by his wife Meshawn formed the 11th Congressional District Majority Committee. The name "Republican" was left out of the title as some legal minds have suggested to avoid a potential lawsuit while others have joked that the group is filled with many Libertarians who are following Libertarian leader Peter Schiff's plan to take over the Republican Party through infiltration.
Mr. Maddock has a history of either intentionally misleading delegates or using poor use of words mislead the delegates. A couple of weeks ago a post was made in the Michigan Delegate Facebook Group about a training session that was available to delegates. Since Mr. Maddock used the word "mandatory" in his promotion in a Delegate group this confused many and though they had to sign up and pay for this training. This training was being put on by a group Mr. Maddock supports.
Quite few delegates were confused and upset by an e-mail received by the 11th CD Majority Committee, which to this day the title doesn't make sense, majority of what? One has stated to this author just that, "Majority of What" They have yet to win an election, have a successful fund-raising campains and they typically lose in the primary.
The following is a copy of the e-mail delegates received from the group's Secretary, Kathy Chestnut, whom by the way was put on the real 11th Congressional Republican Congressional District Committee, in addition to Lauren Burriss (also on the 11th CD Majority Committee) as a sign of good faith that all are welcome on the real 11th Congressional District Republican Committee.

There are numerous clubs that any can belong to and that includes the club of the 11th CD Majority committee. Ask questions though as to how your time, talent and treasure will be used. The real 11th Congressional District Republican By-Laws state that the committee as a whole shall remain neutral in contested Republican Primaries and will support/endorse the winner of the Republican Primary in the November General Election. Will the 11th CD Majority do the same? Research the group you wish to join before you make a mistake and realize you wasted your time talent and treasure for something that may not be what you thought. Also get it in writing, see the by-laws. In politics few tell the truth especially if they are power and money hungry.
