Brian Marl is the kind of young man we need in a leadership position today. He listens critically, he reasons well, and he acts from a deep sense of responsibility to the community. He exercises sound fiscal judgment, and still provides for the basic services we all expect from our government. He has the experience that sharpens his decision making ability from his work on Saline City Council, and his work as a staff person for legislators in Lansing. Please join me in voting for Brian as the next Mayor of Saline.
