HOUGHTON -- Some local union members, including members of the Michigan Building Trades, will be canvassing Michigan Rep. Matt Huuki's 110th District on Wednesday, June 15, because of concerns about children's education. Any Copper Country residents who wish to join them in a series of informational canvasses here in Huuki's home district are invited to meet the organizers and assist with the local canvass from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 15. The meeting place is the Houghton Wal-mart parking lot, where information, maps and street addresses will be distributed.
According to the canvass organizers, "Lansing politician Matt Huuki recently voted to cut over $1 billion from our local K-12 schools. That’s so Huuki and other politicians can pay for a $1.8 billion tax break for corporate special interests like insurance companies, oil companies and Wall Street banks."
We Are the People offers more information on Michigan citizens voicing their concerns about these cuts to education. Visit their Web site at http://wearethepeoplemichigan.com/.
