The other side of the Headlee override,
By John Connolly
As a liberal who has never met a tax he didn’t like, Morris Goodman-The Good Word (“Dearborn Heights needs to approve millage increase” Sept. 28) is apparently more than happy to listen to Mayor Dan Paletko’s double-speak. Unfortunately, when you do that you get less than half the story. It’s good to know that he is an equal opportunity tax promoter.
On Sept. 26, my wife and I attended a town hall meeting at the Young Center. Paletko, the members of the City Council, the city clerk and the treasurer were there. After a short speech from Councilwoman Marge Horvath about the seriousness of the problem, the mayor took the microphone, and went through some slides. In the first part of his presentation, the mayor attempted to define the problem.
