Strong collaborators

I endorse Mary Marois and Scott Hardy for the Traverse City Area Public Schools school board. Both Mary and Scott have experience managing multi-million dollar budgets and are well known in the community as strong collaborators and dedicated volunteers.

Both care deeply about children. Mary's commitment to improving the lives of children and families has earned her recognition on the state and national levels. Scott's commitment is evidenced by his past service as a school board member and City Commissioner.

Their actions and decisions on the TCAPS board will be made in the best interests of children of the district.

Correcting an injustice

The truth is, the Traverse City area barely escaped the environmental degradation a planned biomass incineration plant would have created. Opposition to biomass was huge, yet no apparent recourse existed to stop Traverse City Light & Power from pursuing it. Persistent and urgent protests fell upon seemingly deaf ears. The petition drive to put Proposals 1 and 2 on the ballot was an emergency measure undertaken to correct this injustice.

Negative statements about the proposals are misleading. The city commission will not be doing the work of TCL&P. The truth is, TCL&P will be doing the will of the citizens.

Voice for tourism

I would like to endorse Rep. Wayne Schmidt for State Representative. Rep. Schmidt has been a big voice in Lansing supporting tourism especially in northern Michigan.

He has been a big advocate for Pure Michigan which has brought thousands of people to our area.

As a former manager in the hospitality industry, Wayne understands the importance of hospitality in our area.

Northern Michigan needs strong leadership in Lansing, and that leadership comes from Wayne Schmidt.

Please send Rep. Wayne Schmidt back to Lansing Nov. 2.
