Town Hall Meeting to Discuss Public Act 4 (Emergency Managers)

Posted on: June 21st, 2011 by Erica Ackerman No Comments

The Washtenaw Community Action Team (WCAT) is hosting a Town Hall Meeting at the Ann Arbor Community Center on Saturday June 25th (10:30am-12:30pm) to discuss Public Act 4 and the statewide initiative to repeal the law.

Public Act 4 is a new law that empowers the Governor of the State of Michigan to appoint Emergency Managers (EM) to communities placed in the receivership of the state. The EM has broad, unchecked powers to sell public assets, close schools, shred public contracts and agreements, and dissolve governments and remove elected officials. A $1.7 billion tax cut for businesses has made a number of Washtenaw County municipalities and school districts at risk of receivership. (more…)

Online Petition to Fight Gov. Snyder’s Devastating Cuts

Posted on: June 1st, 2011 by Erica Ackerman 1 Comment

We need to stand up and tell Governor Snyder that devastating cuts to public education, eliminating the earned income tax credit (EITC), and sharply raising taxes on our seniors is no way to “re-invent” Michigan. It’s not “shared sacrifice” and it’s no way to create jobs in Michigan.

Help fight Gov. Snyder’s budget proposal. Sign the online petition and tell the Governor that we won’t stand for a $2 billion tax cut for special interests while our seniors, children, middle-class families, and low-wage workers suffer. Click here to sign the wiredforchange.com petition.
