Event Description:

Join us for a half-day mini-policy conference as we take an in-depth look at the elimination of Michigan’s Personal Property Tax and the way that lost revenue to local municipalities, schools, libraries and emergency/essential services will be replaced.

You will understand how this tax will keep these essential services funded and make Michigan a Top-10 State in terms of business climate and competitiveness.

Because the Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce has endorsed passage of this critical ballot question at the August 5th Primary Election, we are bringing you some of the foremost experts in Michigan to answer your questions and help you understand how important this issue is to the business community and all Michigan residents.

Our panel of experts includes:

  • Tricia Kinley, Senior Director of Tax & Regulatory Reform, Michigan Chamber of Commerce
  • Former Senator Tony Stamas, Vice President Government Relations, Small Business Association of Michigan
  • Mike Johnston, Vice President of Government Affairs, Michigan Manufacturers Association
  • Patrick Curry, President, Fullerton Tool and Endurance Carbide
  • Sheriff William Federspiel, Saginaw County Sheriff's Department
  • Dr. Carlton Jenkins, Superintendent, Saginaw Public Schools
  • Deena Bosworth, Director of Government Affairs, Michigan Association of Counties
