Veterans Day is a time to celebrate and honor the service of all U.S. military veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. Today, we would like to take a moment to thank all of our members, elected and non-elected officials, friends and family who have served to protect our freedoms. Thank you, and happy Veterans Day, -Michigan Association of Counties  
Hello MAC Members and followers, and welcome to the new blog of the Michigan Association of Counties. Today felt like an appropriate day to launch our new blog seeing as it is such a crucial day to our nation.  Government, from local up to federal, has such an impact on our daily lives, and it is an amazing opportunity to take part in the decisions that are made through the ability to vote. Here at MAC, we are continuing to fight for the interests of county government and their residents.  As we head into lame duck, MAC will be working on your behalf for favorable outcomes to issues as important as personal property tax, indigent defense, labor issues, court reform and PILT. You can follow the progress on these issues and more on our Facebook page, twitter feed, and website. It is our hope that this blog will be an additional source to keep our members and followers informed and up-to-date on what we are up to.  So stay tuned!  There is way more to come! Thank you for following, and happy voting!
