Before asking citizens to pay they should have cut wasteful spending , ridiculous good ole' buddy salaries and pensions.Taylor tucky is prime example. They do not need that many firefighters or police. They received $6.6 million from feds to keep overstaffed. Fire dept. That money instead should be used for important things like upkeep of schools.also their pensions r ridiculous.they make more retired than active. In Ohio they made sure .schools were of importance also.also counties r out of line with pensions and salaries and wasteful spending fer this day and age.cut the fat already!!!

Just for clarification, this is a school district millage vote within Wayne County. Wayne County Community College has cut expenses and still delivers a tremendous service of education to the community. They are not part of the graft associated with Wayne county government generally such as the county commission and Ficano and the airport.

Also it should be noted that the college district covers all of Wayne County except for Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Garden City, Highland Park, Livonia, Northville, Plymouth and part of Canton. You are not asked for the tax if you are in these communities.
