The Gadsden Center recently came accross evidence that County Commissioner Steve Williams supported Proposal 1, the nearly $2 billion gas tax increased pushed by Governor Snyder. Mr. Williams is the incumbent in County Commission District 6. He is being challenged in the August 2, 2016 primary by Sheriff Bob Bezotte.

 The Gadsden Center was strongly opposed to Proposal 1. Voters rejected Proposal 1 by a historic 80% to 20% margin. 

 

Here is a flyer showing Mr. Williams comments as part of the Safe Roads Yes campaign.

Below is a quote from MIRS, a Lansing newsletter for policymakers. Mr. Williams states that those opposed to the tax increase are living in a fantasy lannd. See statement in the red rectangle.
