RICHARD BLUE: Remember what happened with lottery funds when heading to polls next month

TO THE EDITOR:

Just a reminder to Proposal 1 voters that after legislators got us to approve the Michigan lottery start-up with assurances that the lottery revenues would go for education, they quickly shifted an amount from the old education budget equal to the new lottery revenues to the general fund where it could be used for pork barrel projects, and Michigan education was no better off than before.

What are the odds they wont pull the same trick on the voters this time?
