An observation – One of the reasons we sometimes don’t feel like progress is being made is because we have a propensity to celebrate success only when something really big or controversial happens. Yet, the state passed teacher retirement reforms that will save about 3 billion over ten years and little was heard outside the editorial pages of a few newspapers! While more actions are needed to turnaround Michigan, this was a big step forward. Maybe you should write your legislator if they voted for this and thank them for their courage!
