Let's Rescue our Ludington Lifeguards-- the lifeguard program that Ludington has had before it was scrapped this year costs less than $20,000 to maintain; being that our Mayor used this to get his job, and they saved at least 3 people last year, why?

If you go down to see the Macker this weekend, be sure to print out some flyers (below, or your own) about the lifeguard situation and distribute them. A very good weekend to get the word out to a diverse amount of folks, foreign and domestic to the area.

Gus Macker this weekend. One of the best times to mobilize for the 'guards. I like how you put the $20,000 in perspective for your flier.

Here's that handout/poster I promised on my last post here in the MS Word format. Feel free to modify the material to personalize it for the way you feel, but stick to the facts, please.

By next week, I hope to have some hand-outs/mini-posters ready to deploy, and make them available for any who want to print them out. I encourage any input and ingenuity out there so we can have a variety. Stir the waters. Get tourists/part-time residents involved.

The city will not likely be able to re-instate the lifeguards until a new budget year, and the petition process can take time. So it would be good to start a petition now, but don't expect tangible results until late this fall.

We need to get some sort of petition going on this for large public support to show the CC the need for reinstatement asap.
