Save Benton Harbor from Emergency Financial Manager

Remove Emergency Financial Manager Joseph Harris from control of Benton Harbor, Michigan.

Why is this important?

Appointment of Emergency Financial Manager (EFM) disenfranchises Benton Harbor voters by stripping power away from officials they elected.

Appointment of EFM places an onerous burden on the already stressed finances of Benton Harbor by forcing the city to pay $12,000 a month for EFM.

Appointment of EFM creates an anti-democracy situation that further weakens the basic tenets of our free society.
