Your local Democratic Committee endorsed three ballot proposals at our last party meeting in early July for the upcoming August 5 primary.
- Renewal of the school mileages for the Frankfort-Elberta and Benzie Central school districts.
- Renewal of the Soil Conservation District funding.
- Renewal of the telephone bill surcharge funding for 911 answering and dispatch services.
Remember that these are not new taxes, but a renewal of we the tax payers approved in the past. Please get out and support these three causes. This is an important primary election, so please make time to vote.
