Four vie for three board seats By MARY JO WHITE mjwhite@lsj.com

EATON RAPIDS - Four candidates are running for three four-year seats on the Eaton Rapids Board of Education. Jon Althouse, Theresa Platte, Tom Reich and write-in Mike Williams will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot. In addition, Carolyn Wyckoff is running unopposed for a two -year term.

The candidates Jon Althouse, 49, has lived in the district for 18 years and has two children in the high school. He has been on the school board for eight years, serving in every position. He is a professor in the Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering Department at MSU. Theresa Platte, 42, has lived in the district for seven years. She and her husband have three children. A 1986 honors graduate of Lansing Everett High School, she earned a certificate in data processing/computer programming in a two-year program at Hill Vocational Center. She has also completed various business/finance courses at Lansing Community College and several training courses while employed by the State of Michigan.

Unopposed Carolyn Wyckoff, 64, has lived in Eaton Rapids her whole life and graduated from the high school. She and her husband have two grown children and two grandchildren. She worked for the district for more than 25 years.

Tom Reich, 55, has lived in the district for five years. With an associate’s degree in criminal justice from Lansing Community College, he served for 25 years in the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office, retiring as a detective lieutenant at age 43 in 1998. Currently he works as the gaming director for the charitable gaming division of the Michigan Bureau of State Lottery. Mike Williams, 61, has lived his entire life in the Eaton Rapids School District, except for his years in the military, and graduated in 1968. His two children. He is a retired community mental health contract worker, concentrating on inhome care. He is also a retired captain in the Eaton Rapids Fire Department and a past state commander for the American Legion. In addition, he chairs the local Asset Building group.

The issues Following is a “question/answer” session with the candidates:

Q:

Schools everywhere are struggling with budget issues. What specific budget proposals will you bring to the board if (re)elected? Althouse: First, we should try to find services that we can share with other districts. For example, we currently share food services with Waverly. Next, we should find ways to conserve energy. Doing this will not only impact us now, but in the future.

Wyckoff

Platte: Until the state reforms how money is generated for public schools, budget issues will be an ongoing problem in Michigan. However, there is another area that I believe we have a chance of turning around that could benefit our revenue greatly. It is our declining

enrollment. Since state funding is based upon student population, we need to make sure that we are not only retaining the students we already have, but attracting others to our district. To do this we need: to deliver a relevant, first-class education to students of all ages and abilities; a curriculum that is rigorous and effective; staff that is committed to the success of our students; buildings that are secure and conducive to 21st century learning; technology that keeps pace with the real world and forging relationships with parents and community members for the benefit of our students. Reich: It is a known fact Michigan’s economy is at an all time low and school districts across the state have felt the wrath of cuts and forced retirements. The Eaton Rapids Public school board must continue to be innovative and implement new ideas, ideas that work. School boards must work as a team to be successful for the school district but also ensure our children are given the very best education possible. Williams: I’m very much in favor of the proposed bond because of the technology it will bring to the school, as well as infrastructure improvement. We have some 50-year-old buildings with 50-year-old furnaces. I would have to look at budget proposals and enrollment before I made a decision on closing a school. On average, we’ve lost 80 kids a year for the last ten years.

Williams

Wycoff: Schools need to find a more fair way of receiving funding. The students in Eaton Rapids deserve the same opportunities as other more affluent districts. At the same time we need to be prudent with the money we do have.

Q:

What specific steps could the district take to attract new families? Althouse: Having the most vibrant educational program we can deliver, having good scores on standardized exams, having Eaton Rapids grads going to college and having good programs in the earlier grades, preschool, for example. Platte: Making the changes suggested above would be a good start. However, another key element to attracting new students and families is marketing. I currently serve on the district’s marketing committee and we have worked very hard to promote awareness of our programs and shed a positive light on our district and community. Working hand in hand with the Eaton Rapids Chamber of Commerce and Kolt Communications, we have advertised through billboards, television commercials and local newspapers, just to name a few.

ELECTION 2010: Eaton County Probate Judge Thomas Byerley (i) w Party: No party w Age: 57 w City of residence: Dimondale w Occupation: Eaton County pro-

bate judge w Education: BBA,business man-

agement, Western Michigan University J.D., University of Toledo College of Law w Political experience: Eaton County Probate Judge, appointed April 23, 2010. w Family: Married, four children, five grandchildren w Campaign website: JudgeByerley.com What makes you qualified for this position? Before assuming the Probate Court bench by appointment of the governor, I practiced law for over 30 years in the state of Michigan, including: Assistant prosecuting attorney in Cass and Berrien Counties, where I handled cases of child abuse and neglect, juvenile delinquency and criminal prosecutions of adults; I served as county attorney, advising elected officials of their legal responsibilities and litigating cases where the county was a party; I served 10 years at the State Bar of Michigan, where I was ethics counsel for lawyers and judges throughout the state; and I engaged in the private practice of law, which included estate planning and litigation of all types. Many sitting judges and practicing attorneys have endorsed me as the most qualified person to be Eaton County Probate Court. These endorsements may be found at www.JudgeByerley.com. All areas of government are under pressure to improve efficiency. What are your suggestions for improving the efficiency of this court? Since being appointed to the bench, I have learned that my predecessor recently reorganized staffing levels and programs to improve efficiency and cut costs to the taxpayer. Even though I have served as judge for only a few weeks, I am also discovering that additional efficiencies in personnel costs and operating expenses can be gained to better serve the public. I will be working with the court administrator to incorporate those additional changes as the new court budget is prepared. Do you believe that the court is providing timely and quality service? If so, elaborate on

details. If not, what do you propose to improve? I have been fortunate to assume a highly competent and professional staff at the Eaton County Probate Court and at the juvenile facility. The staff has been dedicated to provide timely and quality service to families, juveniles, attorneys and others who become involved in the probate court process. I am very proud of the dedicated employees of the court, but the quality and timeliness of service can always be improved even further. My management philosophy is to reject the “top down” approach, unless necessary, and allow the individuals who are performing the tasks every day to suggest ways for improvements in quality and timeliness. That will take place soon. Do you accept political contributions from attorneys or law firms that appear before you? Is this a conflict of interest? Please explain. The Code of Judicial Conduct, adopted by the Michigan Supreme Court, applies to all judges and judicial candidates and cannot be disregarded. Those rules provide that lawyers may be asked to contribute to a judicial campaign, but the lawyer may not be asked to give more than $100 per election cycle. The theory of the rule is that lawyers have a right to be a part of the political process and have a right to contribute to campaigns of judicial candidates. By setting a $100 limit for solicitations, however, it is presumed that no judge would be prejudiced by a contribution of that level. I strictly follow the Code of Judicial Conduct and accept lawyer contributions within the limit imposed by law.

onstrated that I am an advocate for families, children and the elderly. I firmly believe that children and teens learn what they experience and live. I am deeply committed to family values and will protect our children and elderly. This will be my first priority. I have dedicated the past 21 years concentrating my law practice in the area of probate law earning the highest rating for legal ability and ethical standards by a leading peer review organization. I have received a Certificate of Completion in the areas of probate and estate planning issued by the Institute of Continuing Legal Education and the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan. I have been a member of the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan for over 20 years. I am the co-chair of the Probate and Trust Section of the Ingham County Bar Association, and am a long-standing member of the Greater Lansing Estate Planning Council. I write a regular monthly column, entitled “Estate Strategies”, in the Ingham County Legal News, and am recognized as an attorney with probate and estate planning expertise within the local legal community. I have a second career as a U.S. Naval officer. After completing 3 years of active duty in 1988, I have spent the past 22 years in the U.S. Navy Reserves in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. I am a Captain and currently assigned as the Staff Judge Advocate for the Navy Region Midwest, Reserve Component Command, Great Lakes, Illinois. My legal and military experiences have prepared me to be an effective leader and probate judge. All areas of government are under pressure to improve efficiency. What are your suggestions for improving the efficiency of this court? As a Naval officer with over 25 years of military experience, my courtroom will be run with discipline and efficiency. I also have a strong background as an executive and leader. I was the President of the largest Eaton County law firm for 7 years and managed an annual budget in excess of $2,000,000, including 20 employees. In addition, I have served as a Commanding Officer for 2 separate naval reserve units. With total responsibility for the men and women under my command and the allocated budgets, I demonstrated a high level of competency for management and administrative matters. On 2 separate occasions, I was awarded a Meritorious Service Medal for my outstanding performance as a Commanding Officer.

With regard to particular suggestions, I would strive to make mediation a regular tool of the probate court. Mediation with a focus on collaboration is a good process for disputed probate cases. Issues can arise in several probate matters that may be mediated, including but not limited to estates, trust, guardianships and conservatorships. Do you believe that the court is providing timely and quality service? If so, elaborate on details. If not, what do you propose to improve? Judge Michael Skinner was an outstanding probate judge, and he was providing timely and quality service to the citizens of Eaton County. I would like to continue his legacy. Judge Skinner was a strong supporter of the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) organization and the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Council. I would continue that support. I believe that each person deserves his or her day in court, and I will work diligently to improve any backlog of cases. The Friend of the Court (FOC) Division needs to be reviewed and evaluated. I have heard several complaints about the FOC’s processing time and the inconsistency in its rulings. I will do my best to ensure that the FOC does its job and follows the law. I also believe there are ample opportunities to refer contested matters to mediation, pursuant to a recent Michigan Court of Appeals ruling. This process could save families time and money if it is done in the appropriate circumstances. Do you accept political contributions from attorneys or law firms that appear before you? Is this a conflict of interest? Please explain. My campaign committee is following the Canons set forth in the Michigan Code of Judicial Conduct. My committee has accepted donations from individual attorneys, and this is not considered a conflict of interest under the Michigan Code of Judicial Conduct. Contributions cannot be accepted from law firms. Whether someone (including attorneys and other private citizens) contributed to my campaign will not be a factor in any ruling. As a judge, my rulings will be confined to the law and facts of the case. The Michigan Code of Judicial Conduct prohibits a candidate for judicial office from personally soliciting donations. A candidate may establish a committee to secure and manage contributions. A campaign committee is prohibited from soliciting contributions in excess of $100 per attorney.

Food drive will start on Oct. 25 EATON RAPIDS — Eaton Rapids Medical Center (ERMC) is holding the Michigan Harvest Gathering food drive from Oct. 25 to Nov. 8. Non-perishable food and personal hygiene items collected will be donated to the local food bank, Heart & Hands. Collection barrels will be located at Eaton Rapids Medical Center, Family Fare, Ross & Associates Realtors, Meridian Magnesium Products of America, Eaton Rapids Public Safety, Island City Academy and Greyhound Intermediate School. A few of the desired items include canned meals, boxed dinners, dry pasta, cereal, and infant formula. Non-food items such as soap, toothpaste, laundry deter-

gent, disposable diapers and feminine hygiene products are appreciated as well. Last year, the Michigan Harvest Gathering in Eaton Rapids collected more than 3,000 pounds of food. This year, ERMC hopes to exceed that amount, because according to the Hunger in America 2010 report published by Feeding America, 26 percent of Michigan residents seeking assistance have to choose between buying food or medical care and medicine. For more information, contact Leslie Neubecker-Czubko, registered dietitian, at (517) 663-9453. — From the Eaton Rapids Medical Center

College player of the week OLIVET — Olivet College senior Cara Underwood (Holland) has earned Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Defensive Player of the Week honors in women’s soccer. Underwood anchored a Comet defense that posted back-to-back shutout victories. In a 2-0 win over Trine (Ind.) University Oct.

5, Olivet held the Thunder to five shots, while Underwood scored a goal and added an assist. Her play helped keep Kalamazoo College off the scoreboard in a 2-0 victory Oct. 9. The victories helped the Comets into a first-place in the MIAA standings with a 2-1-1 record. — From Olivet College

The only two choices we have are massive tax increases, or we make the cuts,” Jones said. “We can’t print money like the federal government.”

EATRAN seeks to expand By ALAN MILLER alanmiller@lsj.com

CHARLOTTE — Public transportation systems supported by tax levies face a dilemma: While somewhere around 10 percent of citizens actually ride the buses, they must find support from more than 50 percent to levy the tax. If a system seeks to change an existing tax levy to serve future riders, the calculations become more complicated. In less than two weeks, the Eaton County Transportation Authority (EATRAN) will either be making plans to implement an expanded public transit system, or else they will be in survival mode, making plans for a special election to allow them to keep their doors open. A ballot proposal on the Nov. 2 ballot would replace a quarter mill tax levy, which expires after the Dec. 2011 tax collections, with a threequarter mill levy to be collected for five years, beginning in Dec. 2012. “The impact of this election will be felt for many years by citizens whether they ride the bus or not,” said EATRAN General Man-

ager Donna Webb. The current levy, which costs the owner of a $100,000 house approximately $12.50 per year, yields $860,000 per year for the EATRAN system, and covers 34 percent of its operating expenses. The proposed levy, which would cost the same homeowner approximately $37.50 per year, would produce an estimated $2.55 million per year, and allow the system to expand its services by adding fixed routes in addition to the current demand service. Webb said the addition of fixed routes will allow the system to be more efficient than the current model of relying entirely on curb-to-curb service. This planned expansion troubles Charlene Wagner, a leader of the “Friends of the Taxpayer” committee, which seeks to defeat the proposal. Wagner said she is not opposed to EATRAN, but believes this is not the time for expanded services, with record foreclosure numbers and many taxpayers struggling. “I think EATRAN has some needs, and they have their struggles, but I don’t

think this is the right plan,” she said. “I feel that even if you do need extended hours, you should find a better way, asking less from the taxpayer.” Bob Robinson, spokesperson for the “Friends of EATRAN” committee, feels this is exactly the time to expand public transportation. “We can talk green economy, and most people have pictures of solar panels and windmills. But public transit is a part of the green economy,” he said. “It has probably a bigger return on investment than any other investment in infrastructure.” Neil Rohrs, another opponent of the proposal, believes the system should demonstrate more efficiency in using current resources before they get larger. “When you look at the ridership, how can you justify expanding this with so few riders on those large buses?” he said. “I’d like to see them a little more efficient in their current 12 hours a day.” The EATRAN board is counting on the increased revenue to finance the transportation improvement plan,

Hundreds of signs across Eaton County urge votes for or against a proposed property tax levy to support the Eaton County Transportation Authority (EATRAN). If the proposal passes, the current quarter mill property tax levy, which expires Dec. 2011, would be replaced with a three-quarter mill levy beginning in Dec. 2012.

Board: 4 vie for 3 available spots

Williams: Five hundred thousand dollars of the $25 million bond proposal will go to attract families by bringing in a high tech high school. This would be a separate school of 400 kids maintained within the current high school. The rest of the bond will allow us to be academically competitive with an improved auditorium, more modern computers and 19 school buses that run on butane, thus making us a greener community. Wycoff: I have no magic wand

Q:

What particular skills/expertise will you bring to the board?

Althouse: My educational background. I’ve taught at MSU for 25 years. I now run the program where I was once a student. Platte: In 1995, after 10 years of civil service, I put my career on hold to focus on raising my children. Being a single-income family of five for nearly 15 years has made me very frugal and budget minded. As a parent, I have been an avid school volunteer for more than 16 years, serving in every capacity from field trip chaperone to room parent. Since being appointed to

YOUR

the board in January of 2010, I have had the benefit of working through the school budget process as well as other important issues. Reich: I’m fortunate to have had two career paths. I bring 25 years of law enforcement experience and leadership qualities to the school district. As the gaming director, I have extensive experience in developing and evaluating program policies, procedures and rules, and developing and analyzing legislation. I have participated in the forecast of revenue and preparation of the division budgets. Williams: I’m a no-nonsense person and firmly believe in being forthright. If the kettle’s black, I’ll call it black. This community was kept in turmoil for a whole year in discussing whether or not to close Northwestern Elementary. I would have pursued an earlier vote. I’m not afraid to voice my opinion. Wycoff: I feel that I can see both sides of issues from being a part of the school and that is my biggest asset for being on the school board.

Reich: In order to attract new families to the school district, it is very important to work closely with the local governing bodies to ensure growth development and to ensure future expectations of growth are achieved. Eaton Rapids is a great community to raise a family and a great place for manufacturer expansion including future manufacturing possibilities by great people with great work ethics.

or great plan to bring any additional money to the district other than marketing the great programs we have to attract more students. How do we do that? We have to let people know all the great things we do and at the same time never be satisfied with not doing better.

Pledge has long history Jeffrey Owen Jones and Peter Moyer recently wrote and published The Pledge, which chronicles the pledge of allegiance. The Pledge of Allegiance was adopted on Oct. 12, 1892, the 400-year anniversary of Columbus’s voyage to America. This creed has not achieved the notoriety of other documents (the Constitution and Declaration of Independence) or songs (America the Beautiful and Star Spangled Banner), but the tradition of reciting the pledge has lasted close to 120 years. A young Baptist minister, Francis Bellamy, wrote the Pledge for a national magazine called the Youth’s Companion. It was included in the magazine as part of the first Columbus Day pro-

gram. The original Pledge contained 22 words and now stands at 31 words. The authors of The Pledge trace the history of each change. The last major change occurred when President Eisenhower signed a bill in 1954 adding “under God.” I checked into each Eaton Rapids school building’s practices as to saying the Pledge of Allegiance: • Lockwood (K-1) students say it in their rooms with their teachers

• Northwestern (2-3) students say it in unison being led by student leaders over the PA system. Classes take turn with the leadership. • Greyhound Intermediate (4-6) students say it in unison being led for the starting words by our building secretary, Suzie Griggs. • Middle School: We were not saying it regularly but a student has encouraged us and we are going to be doing it • High School: We do not say it regularly but will work it in as a result of this article and book. Early on, many states mandated that we recite the Pledge in school. Gradually, challenges occurred because of “under God.” Rights under the first Amendment, and people just not wanting

to be told what to do. There have even been three Supreme Court cases dealing with this topic. Rotarians say this each week at the beginning of our meeting. As I write this article, I wondered if I had been saying the Pledge by rote without thinking about its significance. I am going to put a little more effort into thinking about the words. I like closing this with an insight from a Washington Post journalist (Mary Kirkpatrick) who reviewed The Pledge: “The Pledge “is a powerful unifying ritual that brings together Americans in an affirmation of shared patriotism.” William DeFrance is the superintendent of Eaton Rapids Public Schools.

The Truth About the EATRAN Transportation Millage

October 24, 2010

Nathan uses a wheelchair and he’s furious. Nathan takes EATRAN to work four days each week, Photo of Nathan earning his pay at Walmart. Without EATRAN he wouldn’t be able to work, pay taxes, or spend money at all. So Nathan would like to see the EATRAN millage (to increase operating hours on weeknights, bring back weekends, and establish efficient new bus routes) pass in November. That way his freedom and mobility can include weekends and weeknights throughout the entire county, and our region would benefit from the increased economic activity. Everyone knows that public transportation is good for the economy. But a small group of opponents want to prevent Nathan from that reality, saying that EATRAN isn’t “efficient” and that providing transportation LJ-0100044228

to Nathan, seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, those in poverty, and other citizens is too costly. They have even gone so far as to spread rumors that EATRAN is running a deficit, exaggerating about a tax increase, and blaming the millage proposal on “tax-and-spend liberals.” They’re dead wrong. These opponents don’t understand that:

So we ask these naysayers: Before spreading rumors about the essential services that will be provided by the EATRAN millage, could you please learn the facts? Life for Nathan, persons with disabilities, seniors, low-income folks, students and others doesn’t stop weeknights or weekends. Keep EATRAN moving...

1. EATRAN is a local, state, and federally funded public service, not a profit business. EATRAN does not operate on a deficit or lose money. 2. The millage proposal put on the ballot for November 2 was approved by bipartisan vote of 11 out of 14 Eaton County commissioners, and has significant bipartisan support. 3. The millage will only cost the average Eaton County family $1.20 – the cost of a cup of coffee – each week.

Vote

YES on EATRAN

LAW FIRM OF

Why should you vote “yes” on the Eaton Rapids Public Schools Bond Proposal this November? There are many good reasons. But I am worried the most obvious reason may be overlooked — because it is so simple. The district needs the money to prevent it from having to use “operational” (general) funds to take care of capital improvements that need to be made. Teachers, support staff, administrators and others are the heart of our school district. There would be no education taking place at all without them. And staff salaries come out of the district’s operational/general fund budget. There is no “extra” money in the general fund, and it is a constant struggle to balance that budget. The school district does not get enough money from the state to take care of everything. For many years, this community has relied on support from the people who live here, through a tax-payer supported school millage. The bond proposal asks the community to continue its support without any increase in the current school millage rate.

Many of the items listed in the bond proposal simply have to be done — including fixing building infrastructure like roofs, purchasing new computers and computer-related equipment and buying new buses. The district is going to have to spend money on these things in the near future regardless of whether the bond passes or not. If the bond doesn’t pass, money for those critical needs is going to have to come out of the general fund budget. But the district wants and needs to keep that money for the people that make the district run. The bond would allow the district to pay for needed capital improvements without sacrificing staff costs. We have the unique opportunity to give the district $25 million without an increase in what property owners are already paying. There would be no tax increase. A “yes” vote on the bond would allow the district to use its general fund budget for what matters the most — teachers, support staff, administrators and all the other people that make our district a great place to educate our children.

Letters to the editor

Education is the key

I’m voting for Abed

The founders of this nation believed that a democracy must have an educated constituency to function effectively. They set up public schools to achieve this purpose. We still believe this concept. In Eaton Rapids, we have a public school system that is working hard to educate our children and we are paying taxes to support this obligation. The new bond being pre-

I turned 18 this October and as a first-time voter in November I will be voting for Theresa Abed for State Representative. I am appalled by the negative and untrue attacks from the Republicans. My family has received countless mailings and robo calls defaming Ms. Abed while she has conducted her campaign with dignity and respect. Ms. Abed sticks to the issues while the Republicans

are running dirty campaigns. Vote Abed on Nov. 2! Whitney Williams Grand Ledge

Schauer good choice I really love what Democratic Congressional Candidate Mark Schauer stands for, integrity. In political leaders these days, it’s one commodity that’s all too lacking. While I doubt that I will be on the same page with Mark on every issue, at least with him, you know where he stands. Mark Schauer has my vote in this election. He’s the best choice for the 7th Congressional District because he’s fighting for good paying jobs for Michigan workers and he’s working to protect Social Security. Linda Kimball Lansing

sented for a vote in November does not raise the present tax but does extend it over a longer period of time. Please vote yes for the new bond proposal on the November ballot. I know a good education system is a key to the future. That is the reason I support this bond proposal. It has been said many times, “You are looking at your future and the future of this country when you look at our children.” This is still true. Charlie Page Eaton Rapids

LJ-0100048758

I am asking the voters in the Eaton Rapids School District to vote yes for the bond proposal on Nov. 2. By voting yes, you will help improve the infrastructure of our school buildings, allow for necessary repairs, the purchase of new buses, and to update our technology used by students. Many of these things have to be done whether or not the bond passes — our bus fleet is aging, the roofs of our school buildings are leaking, and our technology has become outdated. The difference is that without the bond, the money must come from the general fund, which also funds everything else from curricular materials to the biggest chunk — personnel. With budgets already stretched, and the fat already cut, it will come down to the elimination of people — resulting in larger class sizes, as well as the elimination of programming — resulting in less choice and opportuni-

ty for our kids. Since we as a community are struggling in this current economic climate along with every other Michigan town, we need to look to the future. A vibrant community has safe, opportunistic, and competitive schools. Please know that by voting yes, you will not increase your tax rate, but you will help make the Eaton Rapids Public School District the best it can be — and as a direct result, the city itself will be the better for it.

Letter to the editor Theresa Abed is honest We hope all Eaton County area voters had a chance to read reporter Alan Miller’s excellent investigative news story entitled “Negative Flyers and Robo Calls Attack Abed” (Community Newspapers, Oct. 10, 2010). In case you missed it, he researched the allegations made against Theresa Abed in the flyers (from the Michigan Republican Party) and the anonymous robo phone calls. He concluded that they were negative and “misleading at best” and went on to objectively relate the

facts. Commissioner Abed has never had anything to anything to do with federal programs, such as health care reform. She does not receive paid health insurance or any lifetime benefits from the county. As an educator, she has devoted her whole life to children and families. As a county commissioner, she has not raised taxes. She voted for a five percent decrease in commissioners’ pay, to reduce county expenditures and has balanced budgets on time. She serves on the Tri-County Office on Aging board and advocates

for senior citizens. Theresa is honest and hard-working. She listens to and understands the concerns of area residents on a variety of topics. She will be a strong advocate for Eaton County families. Her campaign has been about issues, not personal attacks and innuendo. We respect her for running a clean campaign on her own merits and what she has to offer. Please join us in voting for Theresa Abed for 71st district state representative on Nov. 2. William and Helen Schneider Charlotte
