TRAVERSE CITY -- Northern Michigan Community Network is planning a gathering from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. today in the parking lot of the Traverse City Clinch Park Marina, to tell elected officials at all levels to, "Please quit spending money we don't have."

After a brief introduction, participants may sprinkle a few symbolic tea leaves (or crushed maple leaves) into the bay, and sign a group card to Washington, Lansing or their own respective counties and townships.
