This Is A Big Deal

voteMany Michigan ‘Snowbirds’ seem to have gotten wise to the February election trickery.

After expending taxpayer dollars to maximize win potential with the most obscure voting time, these Northern Michigan schools have found a much wiser electorate. Elk Rapids, was looking to cash in on a “close call” in November, published glossy mailers and went full tilt propaganda. It is only one of the following which has fallen backwards.

And an interesting tidbit not school related. Three townships were potentially going to consolidate into “Houghton Lake Twp.” Lake, Markey, Roscommon and Denton Townships apparently did not find it in their best interests. It required EACH to pass the consolidation plan. One township below pretty much tells the rest of the story.

    And then there is this:

    Voters in the Grosse Pointe Public Schools district shot down a $50 million bond issue in Tuesday’s election, quelling, for now, a fierce debate over technology needs and spending in one of the state’s most upscale districts.

    70-30.. you betcha
