Proposal to create jobs

Republicans and conservatives should rally to support Proposal 3. It sets the goal of diversifying 25 percent of Michigan's electricity.

A Michigan State University study projects 94,000 new jobs will be created. In Illinois, where the 25 percent goal was set in 2007, clean energy is the top sector for job creation this year.

Michigan has the manufacturing capacity and human resources to become the global arsenal of clean energy.

This as good as it gets for Republicans. Set the goal, then let the free market decide how to achieve it.

And we create nearly 100,000 jobs.

A vote for integrity

A vote for Kirsten Keilitz for Probate Judge is a vote for integrity.

She has more experience than her opponent. She has served for several years as a referee, handling the same cases as the current judge.

Kirsten is knowledgeable, qualified, and dedicated.

I have known Kirsten for many years, and have had the opportunity to work with her on legal matters as well as volunteer activities.

Kirsten has donated countless hours to organizations helping with projects, people, and legal advice.

Please join me in voting for Kirsten Keilitz for Probate Judge on Nov. 6.
