Years ago we almost got our part-time legislature back. We just missed the mark. We also thought that Term Limits would help alleviate some of our problems and it did. Now it is up to us to make another attempt. A Part-Time legislature just might help them come home to their constituents (they really only work part time anyway) and have to do work in the real world. Get a petition and
circulate it. We have a much better network now to promote and make contact.
Take the petitions to your work, church. clubs and family gatherings. If enough
people get involved we can make this an easy job. Do your share and make it harder for the lobbyists to be heard over their constituents. If you are unable to circulate petitions, (that means you can't sign your name and have no friends) then you can at least make a contribution for printing the petitions and fighting those special interests that will be trying to defeat the proposal. As a matter of fact, do both. Lets give this all we have got. http://parttimemi.com/
The WCTA was organized in March of 1982 because of a deep concern over rapidly escalating and unjust property tax assessments. We are a non-profit, non-partisan volunteer taxpayer organization dedicated to obtaining fiscal integrity and responsibility from all levels of government.
In July of 1982, we incorporated with the State of Michigan and proceeded to build our membership. We have resolved that our elected officials should be more accountable to their constituents for their actions.
We believe that individuals can be effective but that together we can be even more effective. We hold regular membership meetings and also sponsor special and educational meetings on topics of interest to our members and the general community.
Only through a vigilant watch of the government can taxpayers ensure that our government is operating responsibly and efficiently.
Information is a very important ingredient of the WCTA. Our newsletter is sent to all members and we try to keep them apprised of existing and pending legislation that will directly affect their lives.
