“Put me back protecting our streets, not in debt to Canada”
October 20, 2012 PLYMOUTH VOICE.
“We’re hurting in the area of public safety. Our numbers are constantly falling with police and firefighter layoffs.”
Dan Schewe, Brownstown, MI
“Citizens should have the right to decide if the State should undertake major international bridges or tunnel projects for motor vehicles due to the possibility of ongoing taxpayer-funded expenses.”
Patrick Colbeck, State Senator*
Brownstown resident, Dan Schewe was a police officer in the city of Inkster, MI, for 12 years before he was laid off on June 30, 2012. As a father of two daughters, he’s worried about his community deteriorating as public safety falls by the wayside with budget cuts and layoffs. He’s voting yes on Proposal 6 because he wants taxpayer money put toward safe streets, not wasted on poorly thought-out multi-billion-dollar projects.
“We’re hurting in the area of public safety. Our numbers are constantly falling with police and firefighter layoffs. The communities are suffering. I believe that the money could be spent elsewhere to enhance public safety in the state of Michigan.”
