With election day closing in on us, it's time to look over those proposals. There are six state proposals, the first of which is about the appointed emergency manager that can be appointed by the governor to oversee the operation of any school or local government and to develope plans to modify or terminate contracts and reorganize those units when they are failing and ask for assistance,and it is evident that they cannot get out of the finanacial problem. This apointee would be in place until such time as the failing unit can return to solvency.
There is an immediate reaction against a stranger coming in and taking over a city of school, but it is the best solution possible. The alternative is having the entire state assume the responsibility to pay the bills. Supposing the entity has passed a bond issue for several million? This would be a great burden on the rest of Michigan citizens. A similiar law has been successful and is now working. Vote yes if you agree.
