LETTER TO THE EDITOR | SEIU versus the voters

I think almost all would like to see efficient, effective state government.  The one big exception is the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) bosses.

They want more union dues, higher pay and less work per union member. They are involved in the political process, elections, so they can get their puppet politician into office. I have watched live, state legislation being removed from the session agenda, that had bipartisan support.

It was removed because the union bosses called their puppet Legislator and told him to table it indefinitely.

Many cities and counties have gone bankrupt due to these puppet politicians. Detroit is an example of the most recent case.

We now have an election in the 26th Legislative District for state senator.  Incumbent Nathan Schlicher gets a 100 percent rating from the union bosses. His opponent, Jan Angel, gets a 100 percent rating from small businesses. The union bosses are funding the majority of the PAC attack ads on Angel, nearly $120,000 spent so far. Their ads are lies.

If you want efficient, effective state government please vote for Jan Angel to be our next 26th District state senator.
