Park Township Trustee Tom Springer has written a letter in response to a recent Letter to the Editor published by Watershed Voice titled “Park Township Proposed Tax Increase.” Springer writes that implying the township board tried “to keep the road millage ballot proposal a secret” is “inaccurate and unfair.”
Katie Sweeney of Park Township contends township residents have “not been properly informed” of a proposed millage that, if passed, would result in an increase of up to .5 mills to help fund road repairs within the township over a four-year period. The issue will appear on the upcoming Michigan Primary ballot on Tuesday, August 3.

Friend of Watershed Voice, Emme Zanotti, on Pride: “And that’s what the first Pride was. It was a revolution fueled by the fire of Black trans women and trans Latinas. A revolution generated by the kind of spark and passion that can only exist in the hearts and minds of people on the receiving end of an oppressive force so strong that it’s quite literally costing them their lives. The First Pride was a language of the unheard, to paraphrase Dr. King.
“And through it all, we (white people, yes the gay and trans ones too) tried not to uplift the voices and stories of Black and Brown people, but rather we tried to silence them. For decades we erased their memory from the origin story of Pride. We erased their faces from our dining room tables, and we erased their experiences and wisdom from our decision making tables. The people who have given the most to our cause haven been rewarded the least. I’ll repeat. The people who have given the most to our cause have been rewarded the least.”
