**Scroll down this page for information on Region Five voting. This is an important responsibility, so that all members of the MEA have a voice in who represents us at the state level. It will only take a few minutes of your time.
**We are all still reeling with the latest information coming from Governor Snyder and his proposed budget. It’s too early to know how much of his package of cuts to students and tax breaks for business will actually make it through to passage. The MEA is closely examining the proposal and formulating strategies for all of us to defend public schools. As more information is available, it will be posted here.
