Glad you got nothing but truth from Martin, Dale. The rest of us got nothing but lies from him on the city budget and the library millage for the last years of his term. He was a councilman with access to the city budget that few of us had and he put out deceptive four-page mailers again and again to defeat the millages to save the library. So honesty appears to be a problem. Let's all enjoy the fact that he has been endorsed by Janice Daniels as well, our very own soon-to-be-recalled mayor who is now on record defending Sterling Heights councilman Paul Smith and his wife, two of the most hateful bigots this area has probably ever had in office. Recall Janice Daniels and don't elect Martin Howrylak to anything.

The TCU members who are always at city council are open minded and not hostile ?Really ,you must be kidding us or never watch council meetings . Actual the worse behavior does come from those who only goal in life is attend city council meetings

Why is this important? All that is important is the results of his policies as council person and how they effected the people of Troy .

Dear Open minded , . Just because you say it does not make it true. The hostility in your note only confirms for me what I the normal curve tells us . We can expect hostility , closed minds , ignorance , as well as other negative and postive things on both sides . It also says tou are ashame to own your statyements so you hide under a pseudo name. Just thought you may wish to know this .

Dale , What is the difference ? The only important issue is how their policy decisions effected Troy for better or worse . All other issues are of no value when making a voting decision.
