Rep. Stanley to Hold Town Hall on School, Local Govt. Funding Cuts
State Representative Woodrow Stanley (D-Flint) will welcome community members tonight at a town hall event intended to update residents on potential cuts to local schools and governments.
The Michigan Legislature is currently working to complete the general fund and School Aid Fund budgets for Fiscal Year 2012-13.
According to Stanley, many of the changes made by Republicans last year, changes that shifted the financial burden from big corporations to moderate and low-income residents and seniors, were not reconsidered or changed in this year’s budgets.
Stanley will take questions from constituents. The town hall is being held from 5-7 p.m. at Potter Elementary on 2500 N. Averill Ave. in Flint.
