I appreciated Jack Lessenberry's fine, concise Feb. 12 column about the Ambassador Bridge and the Moroun family and that it also pointed out how some of our legislators are complicit with the Moroun family in preventing a new international bridge from being built with our Canadian friends.
It seems that a statewide referendum on this important subject would show the will of the voters.
Vote to honor service
I urge you to vote Feb. 28. This is not just a presidential primary election; for Inland Township residents, there are also two millage issues on the ballot.
If you do not want to vote for any of the presidential candidates or declare your party, just check the box for a "ballot without presidential primary" and you will be issued a ballot with just the millage proposals.
Please take the time to vote or get an absentee ballot.
Please vote to honor the men and women who serve and have served in the military to protect your right to vote.

Editor's note: Benzie County Central Schools is asking approval of a bond to borrow $1,985,000 to acquire and install educational technology improvements and purchase school buses. In 2012, 0.25 mills will be levied. The estimated average annual millage to retire bonds is 0.40 mill per year over eight years. Also, Inland Township is asking for 1.5 mills for six years for fire protection.
