It concerns me greatly that the current Grant Township Board is running as one person. They have the same signs, in the same locations and they all vote the same way. They have not listed anything they have completed in the past four years – all they want to do is stay on the board and keep us in the dark.
Their exclusive club is threatened – so they respond with rumors that the challengers…. wait for it….. are running as a group! Yes, the very thing that they are so proud of doing to hide their lack of achievements – is what they are trying to smear on the other candidates. Incredible! What is the big secret? Why is the Grant Board afraid to run on their own individual qualities?
I looked for myself and yes, the Grant Township Board spent over $60,000 in legal fees for a document called an “Urban Cooperation Agreement” with the City of Clare. It has never been used – and they still claim it as a proud accomplishment. They voted for zoning (Bell voted for it 3 times over the years) and the Grant voters have voted by a 2 to 1 margin that they don’t want it. The board GAVE AWAY our tornado siren! I guess we don’t get tornados here anymore? The current board is out of touch and needs to go.
It is time to bring in some new individuals who are not afraid to use common sense and vote with their own head.
