Take a look at some of the proposals put forth by Battle Creek City Commission candidate Chris Simmons - quite refreshing after last weeks actions by the State of Michigan:
"Reduce property taxes by 3 mills over tw years to ease the burden on our citizens and encourage residential and economic development.
Tax deductions for home improvements, moving into the city, and new businesses.
Hire an ombudsman to identify and reduce wasteful and inefficient government spending.
Restory leaf pickup.
Preserve, improve and maintain green space and protect the environment."
