Interesting to note that reports of organized anti-tax opposition to millages and other issues were prevalent in some of the reporting; Chippewa Valley and Mason school votes being two prominent ones. Both passed. Troy's public safety issue did not.
Here is a roundup of some of the votes from yesterday, starting off with the public safety tax proposals. School bond issues did well across the state, other services were a mixed bag. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive; it's just the stories that have popped up so far this morning in local reporting:
Some of the losers from yesterday:
This is just the start of requests at the local level, as many communities are planning May votes for school and public safety issues. The GR Press has an extensive list of what is to come in the West Michigan area alone, and already stories about May votes are starting to emerge in other areas of the state, Albion and Ishpeming to name a couple.
In other words, if you value your schools and quality of life, better get ready for Round Two!
