E. Davis reported that she had received communication from Trustee G. Snow that he would not be attending.
She then read the following letter from K. Brandow:
Dear CPL Board of Trustees,
I work at the Canton Public Library as an Adult Reference Librarian, and, although I do not live in Canton, I do have a vested interest in the future of the library.
First, I want to commend you on what looks like will be a vote to reset the millage to 1.5437. I think the recent elections around the state have shown us that Michigan taxpayers value their libraries and support such initiatives (please see attached). In fact, 100 percent of 16 millage renewals and Headlee rollbacks passed (please see attached).
