Livingston Dems to discuss ballot proposals at Sept. 26 meeting
    Confused about all the proposals that will be on the ballot in November? Then come to Livingston County Democrats next meeting to learn about them.
    Mark Brewer, former chair of the Michigan Democratic Party and now an attorney with Goodman Acker Law Firm of Southfield, will discuss two of the proposals that Republican lawmakers removed from the ballot. Brewer will explain how the “adopt and amend” strategy affects the proposals on raising the minimum wage and guaranteeing earned sick leave for Michigan workers. He also will discuss the party’s prospects for regaining control of the Michigan House and Senate and how that would affect the legislative agenda of Gretchen Whitmer, the party’s gubernatorial nominee.
    The meeting will be Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m. at the Community Unitarian Universalists-Brighton, 3333 S. Old 23, Brighton. Note that this is a change from the regular Thursday meeting night.
    Speakers also will discuss Proposal 1, the proposal to treat marijuana like alcohol by legalizing the possession and use of small amounts of marijuana; Proposal 2, the anti-gerrymandering proposal, and Proposal 3, the proposal to make voting easier in Michigan by expanding the right to vote an absentee ballot and make other changes.
    The party’s regular business meeting will follow. For more information, call 810-229-4212 or
