Letter to the Editor – Fruitport District Library Millage

To the Editor:

Regarding the so-called “new” millage to continue financing our Fruitport District Library. There’s really nothing new about this, although the Lansing bureaucrats who make the rules on ballot proposals would have us imagine there is. The requested millage will continue funding at exactly the same level as we’ve paid for years, with zero tax increase. To vote “No” is to vote to close Fruitport’s library, which for two generations has served the needs of Fruitport families at its home in Pomona Park. So let’s vote “Yes” to keep our library open and separate from intrusive, expensive county control.
