ELECTION: Vote for Angel in the 26th District

I think almost all would like to see efficient, effective state government. The one big exception is the SEIU union bosses. They want more union dues, higher pay and less work per union member. They are involved in the political process, elections, so they can get their puppets into office.

Many cities and counties have gone bankrupt due to these puppet politicians. Detroit is an example of the most recent case.

We now have an election in the 26th Legislative District for state senator. The incumbent, Nathan Schlicher, gets a 100 percent rating from the union bosses. His opponent, state Rep. Jan Angel, gets a 100 percent rating from small businesses.

The unions are funding a majority of the PAC attack ads on Angel, spending nearly $120,000. Their ads are lies. If you want efficient, effective state government, please vote for Angel for state senator Nov. 5.
