To the editor:
Using more renewable energy in Michigan will help rein in rising energy costs, which is why the big utility and oil companies seem to be doing everything they can to mislead the public about Proposal 3.
I’m not falling for it. More than 30 other states have already passed measures like Proposal 3. Renewable energy is creating jobs and reducing electricity prices in places like Illinois.
We should be doing the same thing, so we can get the same benefits and not get left behind.
The utility companies are hiking our bills by double digits and they will keep doing that if we continue to rely on outdated and expensive energy sources like coal and oil.
I want to move Michigan forward with more clean, renewable energy. That’s why I’m voting yes on Proposal 3.
