Guest Editorial

Why recall Pavlov?

There is a recall effort for State Senator Phil Pavlov. Why?

I’m pleased with his service for his part in replacing the job killing MBT, passing a reform budget in record time, capping welfare benefits and emergency manager reforms among other matters. This is what we elected him to do and voters in our district are smart and should be respected. What the heck are we supposed to do with cities like…

The MI4CS process is, rightfully so, being questioned. I wish to sincerely thank Pete Konetchy and those who do articulately question this process. There have been very good cogent opinions, One of the biggest is that we don't need another organization telling the Tea Party who to vote for. Please consider that if you belong to a Tea Party and need some to tell you how to vote you are probably in the wrong club. We, who have joined and participate, OF OUR OWN FREE WILL, in MI4CS are…
