Brighton Township Residents send extremist treehugging measure to referendum

Some local news in nearby Brighton Township. Great work by Lana Theis to get this on the ballot. The Sierra Club and a bunch of RINOS on Brighton Township's board of trustees tried to sneak this through on the residents. Excerpt From the Livingston County Daily Press and Argus:

"""Tree ordinance goes before voters
By Jim Totten

A controversial tree ordinance opponents have called far-reaching and an infringement on their property rights will be put to a vote in Brighton Township.

Ann Bollin, township clerk, said more than the necessary 1,094 signatures calling for a referendum on the tree ordinance have been verified. She said the next step will be for the township attorney to draft the ballot language, get it approved by the township Board of Trustees and have it submitted to the Livingston County Elections Commission by Sept. 9.

Bollin said the referendum could then be placed on the ballot for the Nov. 8 election. The township board will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. today to discuss ballot language. At this time, she said, the tree ordinance would be the only item on the ballot for township voters."""

This is much more restrictive than an anti-clear cutting measure. If you want more information about this, go to the Care for Brighton site.

Good luck to the pro-freedom residents in Brighton Township.
