Regarding the possible elimination of MSU Extension program services, are citizens aware of what's at stake here? Jobs. 4-H. Ag. Education at all levels. Fairs. The ripple effects will be tremendous.
MICHIGAN call Governor Granholm at 517-335-7858!
One 4-H parent says it all: "We bought our 4-H animal here in Michigan. We buy feed in Michigan. We go to a fair here in Michigan. The money my child earns at the fair goes in the bank so someday he can go to a Michigan College."
Contact Rep. Kevin Daley at 517-373-1800 or send him an email firstname.lastname@example.org to help him win this fight!
Editor's note: Thanks to the efforts of people like Teemie Eschenburg, area farmers, State Rep. Kevin Daley and some fine-tuning on behalf of the people in Lansing, the Michigan State University programs, including the extension and Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station have been spared.
