Governor Snyder Talks of Shared Pain

Governor Snyder speaks of a shared pain in balancing the budget, but it seems that the burden of cuts is affecting children, especially public school children.  If you are interested in what children from less advantaged households will be suffering, please check the Michigan League for Human Services website for information on how poor children will be affected by these cuts.  We need to be made aware that while our children in East Grand Rapids will be suffering from these cuts, children in surrounding communities whose families were getting by will be pushed into poverty and all of the problems that go along with that.
