Balanced the budget

Do we want a governor who is a multimillionaire and was on the board of a company that outsourced 19,000 American jobs to foreign countries? Do we want a man who has little understanding of what it means to make a middle-class income or run any type of governmental structure? If so, vote for Snyder.

If you want a middle-class person who has successfully managed the third-largest city in Michigan in which he balanced the budget, did not raise taxes and knows the process of obtaining consensus between bickering parties, then vote for Virg Bernero for governor.

Firm, fair, fatherly

Many of us moved to Leelanau County because of the natural beauty and friendly family atmosphere that make this a great place to live. These social and family values of our county are exemplified in long-time resident and Probate Judge candidate Larry Nelson. As a judge I am confident he will be firm, fair and, when needed, fatherly in dealing with issues that come before him.

We are extremely fortunate to have Larry Nelson as a candidate. We will support him and urge others to do likewise.

Excellent judicial traits

I am writing to support Mike Stepka for 86th District Court Judge. As a paralegal, later an attorney, I have had the privilege of working and litigating with Mike. I have found Mike to be knowledgeable in the law, fair, and even-tempered, all excellent judicial traits. Mike is also experienced; appearing almost weekly in the District Courts representing clients on an appointed, retained, or pro bono basis for the last 20 years.

Mike's work in the sobriety, domestic violence and mental health courts has proven cost effective for taxpayers by saving thousands in treating non-violent offenders rather than incarceration.
