In a press release, the Modern Whig Party has announced the addition of a new chapter in Michigan.Â That brings their grand total to “12 state affiliates… more than 10,000 official members.”Â The press release profiles their new Michigan chairman, Samuel S. Cummings, as,
“an executive in the private security sector and is also a telecommunications and computer engineering consultant. Coming from a family of national service, his immediate family has been associated with the federal Departments of Transportation, Treasury, Homeland Security and Justice, he has lived around; and has seen a great deal of the United States. A former mortgage banker and having strong familial and friendship ties with the military, Mr. Cummings considers Veterans affairs and the general economy first priorities in our nation today. Mr. Cummings resides in Livonia, Michigan.”
The Modern Whig Party seeks to be an alternative for those who cannot decide between Democrats and Republicans.Â While they’re a minor party, they call themselves “non-fringe.”Â For anyone who’s curious, you can look up your state chapter at www.modernwhig.org/states.
