Community Conversations: What’s YOUR Agenda for Michigan in 2014?
The Center for Michigan, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think-and-do tank that strives to be the state’s “Citizenship Company,” is holding a Community Conversation at the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce on Friday, April 4, beginning at 8 a.m.
This conversation is one of the series the Center for Michigan is holding to identify the priorities of Michigan’s citizens. These priorities will then be amplified in all campaigns and then in the state capitol after the election.
Make sure your voice is heard and attend.
Community Conversations — like the one planned for the Howell chamber — are one of The Center’s leading “products.” According to The Center, more than 20,000 Michigan residents have participated in Community Conversations since they began in 2007. Reports from previous Community Conversations provided public momentum for state leaders to:
• Approve the nation’s largest expansion of public preschool.
• Approve deeper state investment in the “Pure Michigan” marketing campaign.
• Reform state business taxes.
• Institute reforms to save taxpayers $250 million in state prison costs.
Discussion topics for the Howell chamber conversation will include:
• How you feel about Michigan today?
• Economy & Prosperity
• Quality of Life
• Public Money Priorities
