League Of Women Voters Public Forum On The Transportation Millage Proposal

Monday April 7, 2014: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This event will be recorded

What do you know about the upcoming Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority's millage proposal? Did you know it's going to be on the ballot on Tuesday, May 6? Did you know there was going to be a referendum at the polls in May? The League of Women Voters of the Ann Arbor Area (LVW-AAA) host this public forum on the upcoming proposal.

The focus will be on the proposal, which asks Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township voters to approve a millage of 0.7 mills for five years. The increase would generate a total of $4.3 million annually through 2019. Representatives from both More Buses (proponents of the proposal) and Better Transit Now (opposing the proposal) will speak.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
