Please support Don Cooney in MI-6
I am not a Michigan resident, but I know Don Cooney for several decades now. I just found out that Don is running for Michigan's 6th district.
You will not find a more honorable man than Don. Of course, Don himself would probably disagre with that - so true is is his faith in all people.
Without getting into too much detail, Don is a man who had tremendous influence in my life at a time when I was most in need of a moral compass. This was back in '70-'72. Don is all heart, but he's also a incredibly intelligent and an emotional mature man. Everything he does, he does from a perspective of goodness, charity, and a genuine desire to help others. Congress may not, on the surface, fit into a place where I would expect Don to go. But I know that Don is working hard to bring some sense of what our true values in America are - or should be since so much has been lost.
Don Cooney will make you proud to have voted for him and he will make us all proud to have such a good man in our Congress.
I may be a nobody, not a celebrity or someone who has experienced fantastic success in business or any endeavor outside of my year marriage and personal life. But I am what I am, in no small measure, due to Don's guidance when I needed someone the most. In those days, I believed that Don was sent by a higher power to be there for me. I have never since met a man since that personified being a man of God more.
Good luck, brother!

1. Was he a social work prof at WMU in the 80s?
I remember a Dr. Cooney, but I can't remember whether his first name was Dan or Don.
