Chaldeans Called to Vote in Tuesday August Primary
By Chaldean Caucus :: 17535 Views :: Opinion and Editorials


Chaldean Caucus of Michigan is a non-partisan group of politically knowledgeable Chaldeans.  We serve the Chaldean community by engaging and encouraging Chaldeans to be more politically active.  Some of our efforts include helping Chaldean candidates run for office, registering and encouraging Chaldeans to vote, and educating the community about local politicians and where they stand on issues important to the Chaldean community.

We use our community culture as a measuring stick in responses to questionnaires, researching the candidates, reviewing voting records, and making these recommendations for our community.

The following candidates are officially endorsed by the Chaldean Caucus of Michigan.  All Chaldeans are encouraged to go out and vote Tuesday August 3rd in the Michigan primary.  We tend to list only those offices where a large Chaldean population exists.  If your particular city or district is not listed please contact us for a custom guide.  You may VOTE in ONLY ONE party's primary - either Republican or Democratic.  If you attempt to vote in more than one party's primary, your ballot will be invalidated.  In a Primary election, voters CANNOT "split their ticket" for the Partisan offices.

Chaldeans Wonder Which Presidential Candidate Is Best
By Chaldean Caucus :: 26169 Views :: Government & Society, Chaldean Caucus

Michigan, USA – “Chaldeans will overwhelmingly vote on values,” says Roger Shamoun a legal officer with Oakland Courts.  “Chaldeans know the root of so much evil in the world comes from what we as Americans value.  That does not mean Chaldeans are oblivious to the suffering of Iraqi Chaldeans in Iraq.  Both issues are important to the community, and it seems the community is leaning towards Senator McCain as the best candidate to address both of these important issues.”

Julie Hindoo, a college freshman at Oakland Community College disagrees and plans to vote for Barack Obama. “He is cool and hip.  It would be sweet to have a black president in America.  Plus look what Bush has done to Iraq,” she says.

“That seems to be the crux of the issue in the community,” says Shamoun.  “Chaldeans who are voting on faith, family, and tax issues will be voting for McCain hands-down, but what about those who don’t care about those issues and instead care about the Iraqi war.  How should they vote?”

Chaldeans Can Help Pass Senate Bill S. 223 — Cast Light Onto Darkness
By Chaldean Caucus :: 27864 Views :: Government & Society, Chaldean Caucus

The U.S. Senate is considering a bill -- S. 223 -- that would require senators to disclose their campaign contributions electronically, just like the House and presidential candidates have been doing for years. The Center for Responsive Politics, Sunlight Foundation and other transparency advocates have been pushing hard to get this bill passed this session, and they now have more than 40 co-sponsors of the bill.

The Chaldean Caucus needs your help to get it passed into law.  Chaldean readers need to make two quick phone calls to your senators. Our pro-transparency coalition has set up http://Pass223.com so you can easily make the calls and report back what you hear. 

Go to http://Pass223.com to urge the Senate to pass this bill without any amendments. The site leads you through simple steps on how to do it, and it even includes a suggested script. Then you can report back and let everyone know how the call went.

Here's some more information on the bill:

Obama's Attempt to Please Everyone Backfires
By Chaldean Caucus :: 25346 Views :: Government & Society, Chaldean Caucus

Michigan, USA - Obama’s relations with Muslims were further stressed as a private back-door meeting spiraled downward over Jewish support.    Among over 150 African-American community leaders and a handful of Arab-Americans were invited to the private meeting.  An argument ensued between Obama and  Osama Siblani regarding the presidential hopeful’s public support of Israel. 

“The more people learn about him the more they feel he is like any other politician,” says Husam Abid, a Chaldean business man in Detroit, Michigan.  “I was told that the Arabs at the meeting made it clear that they want Obama to return to his roots and stand against Jews.  Others feel Obama is purposely alienating Muslims to mask his heritage and show he would not favor Islam.”

Chaldean community leaders, like Ramzi Dalloo, of Troy Michigan  are hopeful that Obama’s efforts to reach out to the two communities are reciprocated.  Nonetheless, tension between Jews and Obama grows.  A website sharing Jewish frustration titled, www.JewsAgainstObama.com is gaining national attention.  The site catalogs Obama’s anti-Jewish stance.  Danny Ayalon, Israel's former ambassador in Washington adds to the growing discourse in a published article in the Jerusalem Post.  Ayalon writes that the Democratic candidate wasn’t entirely forthright regarding Israel.

John Kuriakuz Files To Run For 39th District House Seat
By Chaldean Caucus :: 32312 Views :: Government & Society, Chaldean Caucus

Michigan, USA - 28-year old West Bloomfield attorney John Kuriakuz officially filed paperwork last week with Oakland County establishing himself as a Democratic candidate for the Michigan House of Representatives in District 39. Last week also marked his last day at a Detroit law firm, where he walked away from a six-figure salary to focus full-time on winning the race to represent his hometown in the State House.

In January, Kuriakuz filed papers with the Secretary of State showing that before the New Year even began, his campaign had already raised over $45,000.

"I am passionate about serving my hometown in the State Legislature and am very grateful for the amount of support I've received so early on," Kuriakuz said. "I am especially proud to announce that unlike many candidates, I did not raise any money from special interest groups. All of my supporters are longtime friends, neighbors and relatives who have known me for years, believe in my abilities and support my vision for the State of Michigan."
