The Kent County Republican Party encourages taxpayers where Bond and Millage Renewal Proposals that are on the ballot to look into whether these requests benefit the interest of all taxpayers, and whether the millages truly advance an improved education system given the poor performance of our public schools.

As a taxpayer, you are also encouraged to investigate the AX MI Tax ballot initiative by Karla Wagner to eliminate property taxes as a source of funding our government services and not fund government organizations like the Kent County Library System.
