Spoils Exchange

Here is a letter I recently sent to the Midland Daily News:

A recent editorial by the Midland Daily News contained the following statement: “[Midland] is also due for a federal grant, stimulus money, to help offset some of the costs of smaller-scale green efforts. It’s all taxpayer dollars, but not all Midland taxpayer dollars. That’s the kind of government assistance we need.” (“Greenbacks for green energy a good trade,” October 21).


How would residents of Midland feel if an additional tax were levied on them in order to fund a project in Ann Arbor? Is that the sort of government assistance Ann Arbor needs?
