The Greater Flint CAP Council has endorsed the MTA - Flint MI Millage Renewal on the AUGUST 4th ballot.

Vote YES on the MTA Millage!!

MTA is more than just city buses transporting people to work every day, MTA provides special services like Vets to Wellness (Free rides for Vets), Your Ride (discounts for seniors and disabled), Rides to Wellness (Same day service), Rides to Groceries, assisting the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan and the Salvation Army distributing water and food, and one of the first to respond in emergencies like when Clara Barton senior home had a fire and MTA went right over to transport seniors to safety. MTA also never stopped providing safe essential travel for the community throughout the Pandemic shut down, providing masks, gloves, nurses taking temperatures, plastic shields between drivers and passenger and disinfecting the vehicle after every passenger.

The MTA has added over 100 cars to its fleet for new medical transportation services. Cars are being added to replace small mini buses for work related service. MTA is a leader in the Midwest with 95% of it’s fleet operating on Hydrogen, Compressed Natural Gas and Propane. MTA has reduced its use of Diesel fuel from 1.3 million gallons annually to 200,000 gallons annually, providing a much cleaner operating environment. MTA has won many awards and is a leader in the country as an example of how things can be run.

Please help to continue supporting MTA and these special services by voting Yes in August for the Millage renewal. There is NO increase, it is JUST a renewal.

Tracking deregulation in the Trump era

So Twitter fact checks the president's assertions (and we all know he has a penchant for truth avoidance) so potus threatens to 'strongly regulate' or 'close down' social media platforms. Meanwhile, regulations designed to keep Americans safe, the environment clean and keep watch to avoid misuse of American tax dollars are on his chopping block. Can you say Misplaced Priorities...

How much deregulation is happening under the Trump administration? This tracker helps you monitor a selection of delayed, repealed, and new rules, notable guidance and policy revocations, and important court battles across nine major categories, including energy, health, labor, and more.

The Malignant Cruelty of Donald Trump

The president is defaming the memory of a woman who died nearly 20 years ago—and inflicting pain upon her family today.

DeVos Funnels Coronavirus Relief Funds to Favored Private and Religious Schools

There is only one way for us to end this madness and it will still take us years to reverse the damage done by these people!

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, using discretion written into the coronavirus stabilization law, is using millions of dollars to pursue long-sought policy goals that Congress has blocked.

Thank you Brother Jim Pederson:

Republican leaders in Lansing say the Governor needs their approval for a short extension of the "stay-home" laws. These are the same people that passed Emergency Management laws which nullified local elections, removed local government authority, and abrogated union contracts. Detroit, Flint, Benton Harbor were taken over by Governor appointed czars, assets were siezed, contracts were broken, real tyranny.

Wearing a cloth face covering CORRECTLY can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others. When you go out on essential trips, follow these “do’s”.

If you have a child, remember those under age 2 should not wear a face covering. See: https://bit.ly/2R9av5m
