Former Green Oak Trustee and well known democrat Sally York wrote a letter to the editor today. You can find it here. I'd like to make two points in response.
1. The GOP did not endorse the Andersons in that school board race. The county GOP endorsed the opposition to the countywide enhancement millage. Carney won due to a combination of the teachers union support, and also conservative mad at incumbents due to the millage. I know some straight GOP votes in that race who were looking for a fifth choice, only voting for one of the Andersons and leaving the rest blank.
2. The problem is not just that Ms. Brennan was appointed or a democrat. This isn't a moderate Jim Barcia type of democrat we are dealing with. Granholm appointed the most leftist judge she could find - One of Debbie Stabenow's top supporters. The same Stabenow who prevents judges in Michigan from having an up or down vote in the senate. Ms. Brennan is also a supporter of radical MI List, the Emily's list of Michigan. Only partial birth abortion supporters need apply. If that isn't enough she organized a war protest with Bob Alexander. Those are mainstream views in Ann Arbor, but not in mainstream Livingston County.
