Support for Bloomberg

Dear Editor, As an independent voter, I always hope that elections are between qualified candidates. Political party affiliation is secondary. For that reason, I am supporting Mike Bloomberg in the upcoming Michigan Presidential Primary on Tuesday, March 10. Bloomberg is a self-made (no inherited wealth) extremely successful business owner who served three terms as the […]

A call for truth

Dear Editor, As much as one tries, mass media in America is hard to ignore. All day, all night we are bombarded by network news, radio, television and major newspapers that publish only three or four stories a day. Studies have shown over 90 percent of this blather and chatter is negative about our sitting […]

Memories of 1945

Dear Editor, Yes, I remember 1945 (“History in headlines,” Feb. 5). It was a historic year. Our president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, died of a heart attack. Two other world leaders, the infamous Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, also died. Reportedly, Hitler shot himself and Mussolini died from the rifles of an Italian firing squad. Over […]

DIA renewal

Dear Editor, When is a promised, one-time, 10-year tax NOT as pledged to the voters? When it has to do with the DIA. In 2012, when the City of Detroit was consumed by bankruptcy, the DIA was successful in asking Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties to pass a 10-year millage. I supported this temporary tax […]

Reader doesn’t see benefit of regional transit

Dear Editor, I would like to thank you for publishing information from our representative, Andrea Schroeder, regarding her office hours and the 2019 Legislation Review. I would also like to thank Pat Kittle for his informative article on the Regional Transit Authority (RTA). That motivated me to attend Rep. Schroeder’s office hours on Jan. 13, […]

Warped War Powers

Dear Editor, The Constitution provides Congress with the sole power to make declarations of war. The 1973 War Powers Resolution passed by the House and Senate requires congressional approval before the president deploys armed forces and commits troops to war. U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s House resolution (not passed by the Senate and therefore has no […]
