Our Billboard Campaign

October 2005

Summer 2005

April 2005

blue cherry billboard

Our first billboard went up in April 2005 in an ongoing effort to unite and catalyze the region's liberals and progressives. Now we're on to our second (pictured above). We're spreading the word about Traverse City's Democratic majority and such blue values as pursuing alternative energy, preserving constitutional freedoms, and protecting our children and their future world. To contribute to this year-long campaign, please send donations to TC Common Sense at P.O. Box 1925, Traverse City, MI 49685. For information, please email us.

You'll find the billboard by driving north on Cass toward 14th Street. It will be on your right hand side, just past the Profile building.
