Washtenaw: EFM Repeal

Heritage Newspapers reports on Saturday’s press conference of the Washtenaw County Action Team, launching an effort to help repeal state Public Act 4. The law, passed earlier this year, empowers emergency financial managers appointed by the governor to take over management of municipalities in the state that are under economic duress. Speaking at the event were Brit Satchwell, president of the Ann Arbor Education Association, state Sen. Rebekah Warren of Ann Arbor, state Rep. David Rutledge of the Ypsilanti area, Ypsilanti mayor Paul Schreiber, Ann Arbor city councilmember Sabra Briere and Steve Norton, an Ann Arbor resident and K-12 schools activist. [Source]
