JULANE QUICK: Voters need to read campaign literature carefully

TO THE EDITOR:

I received a flier on ballot Proposal 2 that is outrageous. On the front, “Background Checks for School Employees Find Felons,” attributed to the Associated Press (May 13, 2006). The AP news covers the entire U.S., and the only quote they could find for this flier is six years old and from who knows where.

On the flier’s reverse side … Prop 2 risks children’s safety! Prop 2

could prohibit schools from firing employees with criminal records. It notes a MCL # (Michigan Compiled Laws), Michigan Attorney General Letter

July 20, 2012. A second item states Prop 2 would eliminate the law requiring safety rules for school bus drivers, and a MCL # Michigan Attorney General Letter July 20, 2012.

Does that make sense to you? Here’s a possibility:

Someone sent a letter to the Michigan Attorney General questioning or referencing the current laws. Could the letters have been written by one person since the date on both letters is the same?

The flier states … vote no on Prop 2 when you return your absentee ballot. Who votes absentee ballot? The over 65 generation, the single largest block of voters. Scam those old folks into casting a no vote to protect their grandchildren. That should work. Right?

WRONG, we are a generation with a good memory, intelligence and we pay attention to the news. That’s why we will vote YES for Proposal 2 “Protect Our Jobs,” which is in favor of COLLECTIVE BARGAINING.

Proposal 2 has nothing to do with children’s safety!
