  1. Dear FirstName,

    In addition to undermining our voting rights with his lame duck replacement law, Governor Snyder and the Emergency Manager he appointed are seeking to slash the pensions of police officers, fire fighters and other city workers who have sacrificed long and hard for Detroit.
    I have now held or participated in three separate forums concerning the Detroit bankruptcy – two in Detroit and one in Washington, D.C. As a result of these forums, I am more concerned that the process being foisted upon us by Michigan Republican Governor Rick Snyder is being used to deny our citizens’ precious voting rights.

    Snyder has appointed an Emergency Manager to run Detroit in place of the duly elected Mayor and City Council. Even more troubling, the Governor did so after Michigan voters had rejected the Emergency Manager Law at the ballot box.

    In addition to undermining our voting rights with his lame duck replacement law, Governor Snyder and the Emergency Manager he appointed are seeking to slash the pensions of police officers, fire fighters and other city workers who have sacrificed long and hard for Detroit.

    Please join me in sending a message to Governor Snyder that we oppose his efforts to deny Detroit citizens their right to vote and to take away the hard earned pensions from city workers.
    I would truly appreciate it if you and as many of your friends as possible would sign the following letter so that I can deliver it to him. I am resending this email to you because due to a technical glitch, some of you may not have received the link to the petition previously.

    Thank you for your continued support,

    John [Conyers]
