The bums' rush

Last week I received a Michigan Republican Party political ad accusing Dan Scripps of wasting $862 billion in taxes; creating trillions in debt; and voting for the federal stimulus package.

We all know that our state Legislature does not vote on national legislation nor does it spend all 50 states' federal money. When Republicans can't find something that is true to campaign on they just fabricate stories and send to everybody. They seem willing to go to any extreme, try every misleading trick to get elected.

Let's give them the bums' rush out of our government, state and federal.

Nothing in return

My electric utility has delivered exactly what they are supposed to; the cheapest power you can get, and they have awesome dependability. Please be alarmed when Proposal 1 could change all that for nothing in return but political gain and fame for its author. Don't let these politics ruin our utility!

Intelligent and effective

Dan Scripps has my vote because he is an honest, intelligent, effective representative who has worked diligently for the people in his district. In addition, Dan Scripps protects our rights. Contrary to his opponent's recent fact-distorting robo-calls, Scripps' water bill makes it even more difficult for mega corporations like Nestle to drain a common aquifer from under unsuspecting neighbors. His opponent's bogus water claims have been called what they are — false by independent fact-checking groups.

Dan Scripps has integrity and will fight hard for your interests in Lansing.

Vote to retain Dan Scripps as our representative.
