Troy City Election 2015

The list of candidates for the 2015 Troy City election was finalized last Friday, July 24th. For some reason the list has not yet been posted on the City's website. Fortunately, Troy City Clerk Aileen Dickson was kind enough to send me the official list. Click here to download and read/print the official list.

Looks like we will also have one City ballot proposal to consider. The Troy City Council has approved language asking voters to decide whether to renew a tax to fund the Troy Public Library. Click here to view the story about the Library millage on the Troy Times website.

Thank you to the Troy City Council for placing the Library renewal millage on the 2015 ballot. The Troy Library is a great asset to our community and I know our family is supportive of the millage renewal.

Leaving Troy on Amtrak - Part 1

On July 12th, I had my first opportunity to see the inside of the new Troy Transit Center. I was dropping off my son so that he could take the morning Amtrak train to Ann Arbor. We had a minor problem that day with the Center that I'll discuss in an upcoming blog post. In this post I'd rather dwell on the positives by sharing some of the photos I took that day.

Knollenberg's 2015 Gas Tax Vote

It took a lot of courage for State Senator Marty Knollenberg to cast a vote that will anger those who think we can repair Michigan's roads without a tax increase.
