Published March 16th, 2005

SILVER CITY -- The Ontonagon County Democratic Party will hold a special public dinner meeting March 26 at Paul's Superior View Restaurant at the AmericInn in Silver City. A brief business meeting at 6 will precede the 7 p.m. meal of baked chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, roll, vegetables, salad, and dessert.

Following the meal, State Rep. Rich Brown, D-Bessemer, and State Sen. Mike Prusi, D-Ishpeming, will speak.

Brown will provide a brief update on his committee assignments in the House. He serves on the Appropriations Committee, Capital Outlay Committee, and is vice-chairman and ranking Democrat on the Transportation and Higher Education subcommittee.

Prusi, as keynote speaker, has been asked to address the following issues: Medicaid funding as it relates to nursing homes and staff; environmental issues regarding the Great Lakes, rivers, and air pollution; the state minimum wage; Gov. Granholm's approach to education issues; and job creation. He will also discuss the incentives being offered for businesses to relocate to Michigan.

The way cigarette taxes have been spent is also to be addressed as well as the rising price of gasoline and the increasing price differential between the U.P. and Lower Michigan. Finally, Prusi will speak to the removal of the cap from real estate taxes when property is transferred within the immediate family. He will then entertain questions from the floor.

Dinner reservations, at $10, should be made no later than March 22 by calling Bruce Johanson at 884-6886.
