You may have heard by now there will be a special election on May 5, 2015. The Governor and the State Legislature are asking for the state sales tax to be raised one cent for roads and other special projects. You can find out more about the issue on the state’s website: www.michigan.gov
There may also be some school proposals on the ballot, but we haven’t received official notice of that yet. We will be sure to let you know well in advance of the election what offices or proposals will be on the ballot.
We are always recruiting new election workers, to help fill in for the “snowbirds”. Being an election worker is fun, fulfilling and pays well, too! If you are interested, please call my office at 248-370-9402 and ask for Lindsay. She can answer any questions you may have about being an inspector.
If you know you will be out of town on May 5, or if it is difficult to get to the polls, you can ask for an absentee ballot application to be sent to you. Just call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
More information on the special election will be posted as soon as we get it.
Terri Kowal, City Clerk
