Don Rice by Anonymous Citizen on February 28, 2006 Good morning Lansing: Do you hear the people? What happened to Government of the people, by the people and for the people? Looks like we should be electing those who represent us rather than the party agenda. Don
Stealing Again by Anonymous Citizen on February 24, 2006 Stealing again this way when the 911 system needs a up-grade you can Tax us again. The General Fund is what has got us into trouble
Hook and Switch by Anonymous Citizen on February 17, 2006 This is a tax that was earmarked to up-grade the 911 service. It was NOT intended for the general fund. If the 911 service up-grade is complete then the tax is SUNSET. PERIOD!!! I am so sick and tired of you money grabbers in Lansing. Michigan operated MUCH more efficiently when we had a part time legislature, because they conducted business at hand and were NOT dreaming up ways to steal more money from the residents. It's OUR MONEY NOT YOURS!!
