Re: RESTORE THE MID-MICHIGAN LAKES

Dear [NAME]:

 

The purpose of this letter is to thank you for your sponsorship and express my approval of the bipartisan Michigan legislation to provide $500 Million for Dam Repairs and Restoration.   We look forward to seeing this legislation passed with significant funding to restore the Mid-Michigan Lakes via the Four Lakes Task Force engineering plans.

 

Our friends and neighbors in this area should not be solely responsible to pay for somebody else's neglect.  Up to this point it appeared if the Lakes are to be restored, local property owners will need to exclusively foot the bill.  This is both not fair and a financial impossibility for property owners.

 

Michigan needs these Lakes to come back.  Your help and support will keep property values from further collapse while supporting the local tax base for schools and services.  Your help will aid the local economy. 

 

We appreciate your support to restore the Lakes.  We have confidence in the Four Lakes Task Force plan to restore the Tittabawassee water system with the bipartisan Michigan legislation for Dam Repairs and Restoration being a cornerstone for success.

 

Thank you for your support.  Please let me know what I can do help you get this legislation across the finish line quickly.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]
