It’s a new year and a new session of Michigan government that features new legislators and a change in the balance of power in Lansing. While one thing – our state’s economic challenges – has not changed, there’s always an opportunity to change the low participation in state government by Michigan’s citizens. The best place to start is with you: get involved, let your legislators hear from you and make your investment in Michigan (your tax dollars) count.
Keeping Michigan great starts with you.
Our government is elected by, paid for, and serves us. It takes the people to dictate how the government is run. It starts on election day by voting for those you think best represent your interests. It continues with each of us communicating our agenda to our public servants, the elected officials. Face it, if they don’t hear from us, how are they going to work for us??
All next week, we’ll be reviewing the various branches of government and their websites. Stay tuned, and get involved. It’s your government.
