Share this:

The Livingston County GOP’s annual Reagan Day Dinner begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, at Crystal Gardens Banquet Center, 5768 E. Grand River Ave., Howell, MI 48843. A VIP reception held prior to the dinner.

The evening’s keynote speaker is Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., who is currently serving in his fourth consecutive term as sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisc. He was re-elected in 2014 by 79 percent of Milwaukee County voters. Prior to becoming sheriff, he served 24 years with the Milwaukee Police Department.

Clarke is also the author of “Cop Under Fire: Moving Beyond Hashtags of Race, Crime & Politics for a Better America,” which tackles the issues of America’s growing racial tension, animosity toward law enforcement professionals, government corruption, and disregard for the constitutional process. Deeply rooted in his life story, Clarke challenges Americans to stop blaming others; examine our problems honestly; take ownership of our family, community, and country; and turn to God for solutions.

In February 2015, the Conservative Political Action Conference presented Sheriff Clarke with the Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award; and he was also honored in May 2013 with the Sheriff of the Year Award from the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association.

Sheriff Clarke is a frequent guest commentator for national new services and organizations regarding law enforcement, Second Amendment, immigration, and homeland security issues.

Livingston County Sheriff Michael J. Murphy will serve as the evening’s emcee. Murphy is currently serving in his first term as Sheriff of Livingston County.
