The Campaign Continues in Benton Harbor

The push to persuade Benton Harbor citizens to pass two operating millage's in a special election is continuing. Last night the "Vote YES, to Move Benton Harbor Forward" campaign held their third town hall meeting to inform citizens of the importance in passing the ballot initiatives. Attendance was light compared to the first two meetings, but that didn't discourage Commissioner Marcus Muhammad. He said even if there were only one person in attendance the presentation would well worth it.


Next Tuesday citizens will go to the polls and vote in a special election that only consists of two initiatives. If passed, the city will be able to generate income through the millage's and be able to levy taxes against personal property to the tune of $2.3-million a year. Giving it roughly an extra $500,000 for 2013.
