What’s your agenda for Michigan?

Consider this: This November, voters will elect a governor, all 38 state senators and all 110 state representatives.

Clearly, it’s an important year for our state’s future. The Center for Michigan, described by founder Phil Power as a nonpartisan “think and do tank,” wants your input. What issues do you want elected officials to address on the campaign trail – and in the state Capitol once they are elected?

The League is hosting a Community Conversation, one of many held around the state, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Monday at the Greater Lansing Housing Coalition, 600 W. Maple St. Lansing.

The Center for Michigan is gathering opinions to summarize and share with policymakers. Topics include the size of government, taxes, investing in roads and bridges, the minimum wage, and education and job training. What services should be increased? Decreased? If you were to increase taxes, which ones would you choose? If you were to decrease taxes, which ones would you choose?

It’s an important opportunity to speak up and make sure your priorities are part of the mix.

There are still a few seats available for the Monday conversation. Please join us to make your voice heard. RSVP to mlogan@mlpp.org by noon Monday.

For more information on community conversations, go to www.thecenterformichigan.net.
