Plainfield Township Supervisor - The Long Hot Summer is Over

Plainfield Township Supervisor - The Long Hot Summer is Over

From: http://www.plainfieldchartertwp.org

Looking back at the long hot summer of 2012, I trust you have some very good memories of your activities with friends and loved ones. During the days of incredible heat and humidity, it looked as if summer would never end when sitting in a traffic slow-down due to construction projects on our roads and highways. It seems there has been an unusually high number of road projects this summer, plus a number of water/sewer projects that affected the roads indirectly. Bottom line; it was difficult finding a direct route to your destination no matter where you were going.

Plainfield Township Manager - The End of a Long and Interesting Journey

Plainfield Township Manager - The End of a Long and Interesting Journey

From: http://www.plainfieldchartertwp.org

More than 16 years ago the Plainfield Township Board of Trustees hired me to work for them as Plainfield Township’s first Manager (technically, “Superintendent”). This was my third appointment as a township manager in the State of Michigan. After more than 40 years in local government, I have just submitted a letter to the Township Board stating that I intend to retire on March 2, 2013. Stress and difficulties often accompany a person in my position, but I consider my career to have been a privilege to work for the benefit of the communities I have served - particularly Plainfield Township, my home. As this may be my last Profile article, I’d like to reflect on my service to this community.

NVPS - More Evidence...

NVPS - More Evidence...

From: http://nvps.net/

Good Morning Governor Snyder, Senator Jansen, Representative MacGregor, and Representative Lyons,

My last three email messages to you carried some qualitative evidence of public schools working in Northview.  Today, I am providing you with some quantitative evidence.  My "Subject" line message reads "Small and Large Miracles."  Please take a minute out of your busy schedule to discover the connection between miracles and evidence.

Have you made a public statement today that public schools are working?  Have your read the latest edition of the Rockford Rampage that provides qualitative evidence that public schools are working in our neighboring district as well?  When was your last visit to one of the schools in your representative districts?

Sincerely,

Mike Paskewicz, Superintendent
Northview Public Schools
