The people of Southfield should allow this millage to expire in July of 2014, and not be replaced.

Southfields millage is one of the highest in the state.

Other communities do just as well with a lot lower millage.

Our kids must go begging for anything extra. The senior class for 2013 had to pass the hat for a Prom.

They hold Proms in Detroit area hotels, and graduation at Chene Park in Detroit. Why does this happen ?

Parents must pay exorbitant amounts of money for any uniforms the kids need to join any activity, and we are already paying the highest tax in the state.

What is happening to the already extremely high normal millage that we pay ?(this is an extra millage) Maybe we pay Administrators to much money. We are not using Southfields municipal buildings for school activities. Why does this happen ?

What about the thousands of people who bring their kids to Southfield to live in apartments, vote on millages, but do not pay the taxes.

We need to lower the millage so these people can afford to buy houses, and pay taxes.
