Emergency Financial Managers — June 2, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Repealing Michigan’s odious Emergency Financial Manager Law, P.A. 4


There is a movement afoot to repeal the unconstitutional Public Act 4, Michigan’s Emergency Financial Manager (EFM) law. The group heading it up is Michigan Forward. Trainings are being held across the state to help people be as effective as possible in this effort. Here’s the information and note that the trainings are this weekend.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for volunteering and spreading the word about our efforts to repeal Public Act 4. Governor Rick Snyder’s takeover legislation, Public Act 4 of 2011, “The Local Government and School District Financial Accountability Act,” commonly referred to as the Emergency Manager (EM) legislation.

Our referendum petition has been submitted to our state Board of Canvassers and our message is clear: Michigan isn’t a state of emergency, we are a revitalized state. Saturday, we will begin the next step in our campaign; training the hundreds of volunteers from Traverse City to Detroit and all points in between to reach our goal of 250,000 petition signatures.

Thank you again for standing against the threat to Democracy in our state.

Brandon Jessup
CEO & Chairman
