WHO TO CONTACT

At this point, we believe the best course of action is to contact our Michigan Federal Officials to include both US Senators and our two US Congressional Representatives. We also believe members of the Presidents’ cabinet may be helpful, namely former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm (Secretary of Energy) and Pete Buttigieg (Secretary of Transportation) who recently relocated to the Traverse City area.

 

At the State level, a letter to the Governor is appropriate. Our two State Representatives, Bill G. Schuette and Mike Hoadly, along with Senator Roger Hauck are very supportive of efforts to seek funding to rebuild. They have submitted legislation to offer assessment deferment to low-income seniors and/or disabled with homestead properties. There is a page where you can learn more and write letters of support.

You can draft your own letter or use one of these - - - while we see on media the approach toward a politician with a negative rant, we suggest a persuasive positive message seeking help will be more impactful. The important thing is for your voice to be heard.
