Regardless of your political leanings, we all agree that we want a vibrant and thriving Michigan. This was true when I proudly served Oakland County in the Michigan Legislature from 1998-2010, and I imagine it is just as true in today’s Legislature.
But there is a growing divide over how best to achieve that. Some current legislators argue that eliminating Michigan’s state income tax is the magic bullet to resolve our economic woes. However, in my work at the helm of the Michigan League for Public Policy, which has been around for more than a century and seen countless political trends come and go, I know that the opposite — investment — is a much more effective way forward.  July 5, 2017 — Oakland Press
