With three weeks to go until the May 5 election on Proposal 1, the Michigan Municipal League has recently posted a number of new videos and community-specific information showing why people should VOTE YES on the road funding initiative.
Proposal 1 will benefit communities in multiple ways and in particular it will bring in additional, much-needed dollars in the areas of road funding and constitutional revenue sharing. The League has put together a slide show illustrating how much additional dollars will be generated in each Michigan community if Proposal 1 is approved by voters May 5. View the slide show here.
The League also has produced a series of short videos of municipal officials from all parts of the state explaining why they support Proposal 1. The League has put together a compilation of the videos that you can view here.

– League President Dick Bolen, Mayor Pro Tem of Wakefield
– League Vice President Nathan Triplett, Mayor of East Lansing
– League Board Member Catherine Bostick-Tullius, Lapeer city commissioner
– Elk Rapids Village President Dan Reszka
– Huntington Woods Mayor Ron Gillham and Commissioner Jeff Jenks
– Kalamazoo City Commissioner Eric Cunningham
– Pleasant Ridge Mayor Kurt Metzger
– Dearborn Mayor Jack O’Reilly
We believe these videos and information not only show the broad-based support Proposal 1 has, but also help explain why the passage of this proposal is so vital to the future of our communities. The League board in January unanimously supported Proposal 1 and joined the Safe Roads Yes! coalition. For community-specific information related to Proposal 1 go to the League’s Safe Roads Yes information web page here.
This page has talking points, neutral information and other details about Proposal 1. The page also includes a list of the more than 20 Michigan communities that have passed resolutions in support of Proposal 1.
