    I can’t make it to the forum. I did send this question in:

    Dear Sen. McManus,

    I regret that I will be unable to attend your talk Friday in Leland. As a business owner who may or may not be affected by the new service tax, I am extremely concerned that my business would be asked to pay the tax while lawyers, accountants and other consultants would not.

    As a school board member, I understand that Michigan somehow needs to increase tax revenues or risk becoming further mired in a downward spiral brought on by a poorly educated work force.

    I thought that this article proposing doing away with the unfair service tax and having a general increase in the business tax deserved serious consideration and would like to know what you think about it.

    -Andy McFarlane
