Lebanese American Leaders Meet with United States Senate Candidate Keith Butler

(SOUTHFIELD, MI)...Lebanese American Leaders in Michigan today met with US Senate Candidate Keith Butler at a private luncheon organized by John Akouri and hosted by Edward Moussawer, Chairman of Auxilia-Michigan and owner of Kabobgy Lebanese Cuisine in Southfield. Topics of discussion ranged from local to international issues focusing on the present situation in Lebanon and the Middle East region. Keith Butler reiterated his support for a free, sovereign and independent Lebanon - a pledge he first made before hundreds of Lebanese Americans gathered to celebrate the 9th Annual Lebanese American Club of Michigan Trailblazer Awards Banquet in November. Following the luncheon, an announcement was made creating the formation of the Lebanese-Chaldean Coalition for Butler 2006. Co-Chairing this new leadership alliance are John Akouri and John Oram. Farmington Hills City Councilman John Akouri formally endorsed Keith Butler for US Senate in November.
