Several area political/education groups sponsored the Prop 1 panel discussion at the Emagine Theater in Novi, Monday March 9th.
There were more than 140 in attendance who came to hear from experts from 4 different citizen groups: Tom McMillin and Adam de Angeli from Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan, Tony DeMott and David Dudenhoefer from Michigan Campaign for Liberty, Bill McMaster from Taxpayers United Michigan Foundation, and Scott Hagerstrom, from the Coalition Against Higher Taxes and Special Interest Deals. They explained what was contained in the May 5th ballot proposal. While several legislators, Mike Kowall, Klint Kesto and Mike McCready, were asked to join us to explain why they voted in favor of putting prop 1 up for a special election May 5th, their offices told us none were available to attend. We also invited several groups who support the initiative, however, not one representative of their position was able to join us.
