Among other things, the state needs to pay up.
And we’re here to remind them, as this isn’t the first time its been said.
Here’s hoping every township, and county clerk is ready with a bill for services on May 6, 2015.

Proposal 15-1 is going to cost us money no matter what. Legislators added about $9 million or more dollars to the cost of doing state business when they punted to the citizens of Michigan in that December lame duck. A recent special election in Grand Traverse County cost over $85,000 and we have about 90,000 for population. At a cost of about $1 per Michiganian, each county, city, and township government is having to officiate what is accurately called a ‘special election.’
And how special is it?
