Jewish Reagan-Bush coalition
is organized for Michigan

The Jewish Coalition for
Reagan-Bush '84 has announced
the formation of its Michigan
Committee. Honorary chairman
of the Michigan Coalition is Max
Fisher, who also holds the honor-
ary chairmanship of the national
group: He will be assisted by co-
chairmen Edward C. Levy Jr. and
Alan May. Staff director will be
James Alexander. The coalition
has opened offices at 700 E. Maple
in Birmingham.

At a meeting of the coalition
last week, Levy stated, "We will
put together a comprehensive
campaign within our community
to insure a significant contribu-
tion to President Reagan's re-
election. Since this election is cer-
tain to be a hard fought, close
race, the Jewish vote in Michigan

Fre

can be the swing vote this
President needs."
May, who currently serves as
GOP chairman for the 18th Con-
gressional District and as chair-
man of the Michigan Civil Rights
Commission, added, "The coali-
tion will function as an arm of
Reagan-Bush '84, the President's
Campaign Committee, and mount
a strong grass roots organization.
To do this takes an enormous
number of volunteers, and we are
actively seeking to include as
many people as possible in this
effort."
Staff director James Alexander
is a former campaign chairman of
the Republican Committee of
Oakland County. The coalition
has set a goal of obtaining 50 per-
cent of the identified Jewish vote
for President Reagan.
