‘To tax or not to tax’

LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Senatorial Election candidates Debbie Stabenow and Pete Hoekstra are fighting for voters’ attention when it comes to taxes. Old Town is a neighborhood that thrives off small businesses and some say they know how important it is for Old Town to pay attention to issues that affect their community. “They’re pretty politically motivated here,” said Old Town visitor Cindy Collins. “That’s always been my impression.”

Pace and Partners Senior Public Relations and Policy Manager Mike Nowlin said, “Lansing usually votes Democratic.” This implies that the town would be more likely to support Stabenow.
