the reason Michigan cannot fix roads or pay teachers a decent wage? Big government. For example, Muskegon County has 29 governments with only 173,000 citizens. 1county, 13 cities/villages, 16 townships ( townships are 6 square miles instituted by Pres Jefferson because a horse could travel 6 miles a day) muskegon township is 6 miles from city of Miskegon offices and is 3rd largest government with 17,000 people!!! Budget $13.5 mill. think of buildings utilities redundant employees I was told by State Rep Mary Valentine 20 yrs ago that would take constitutional amendment to reduce gov size why? Decades ago amendment written to protect gov jobs. is there a reporter out there who would investigate this and report to Michigan residents??
