Not thankful for Huuki

October 27, 2012
The Daily Mining Gazette

To the editor:

Recent phone calls asked me to call Mr. Huuki and thank him. All politicians tell you that they're there to serve you. If you need help, just call them.

In August 2009, my wife became eligible for unemployment. Despite providing all the correct information many times, no unemployment checks came. She called representative (Mike) Lahti in January 2010. Within 48 hours the first check was in her account.

In March 2011, unemployment said she was eligible for an extension. Same problem. She called Mr. Huuki's office in July 2010. We've yet to hear back from him. Thanks for ignoring her needs.

He voted to reduce business taxes by about $1.4 billion, but he offset this by increasing individual taxes by $1.8 billion. Thanks for deceiving those who voted for you.

He taxed pensions. Thanks for taxing those on a fixed income who can afford increased taxes the least.

He slashed education funding the most in Michigan history, then voted in a minor increase and touts himself as a champion of education. Thanks for the deception.

Moyle was found guilty of violating zoning code with their gravel pit. Mr. Huuki responded by spearheading legislation that gives locals absolutely no say in "mining" operations. Thanks for depriving your local constituents any say in "mining" operations.

Trust me Mr. Huuki, I will definitely thank you when I vote.
