It is unfortunate that the letter writer of "Convenient style," printed in the Grosse Pointe News on March 28, or anyone was caught unawares by the Nov. 6 Wayne County Community College District millage election.
An article, "WCCC asks for a 70 percent millage hike: Some say it's worth it, other say it's not," printed on Oct. 25 in the Grosse Pointe News; and an editorial, "WCCC wants $$$," printed in the Nov. 1 issue of the Grosse Pointe News, quoted me as being very strongly opposed to the 10-year 1.5-mill increase.
Not only did I urge residents of the Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods to vote "NO" on the millage increase, I called the timing of the election to coincide with the Detroit mayoral election "sneaky." The millage request was a clear example of the kind of greed I have consistently opposed as a member of the WCCC Board of Trustees.
One reason I am a Republican candidate for the Michigan House of Representatives from District 1 is to introduce and support legislation that will allow local voters to direct their tax dollars to a Community College District of their choice, and to rescind this countywide increase.
I have always voted for "Need, not greed," and I will continue to do so in Lansing.
