Book Burning Party

Safeguarding American Families - Troy Public Library

Issue 24 | September 2012


Due to a struggling economy, Troy, Michigan could no longer afford its library, so it scheduled a vote for a 0.7% tax increase.

The referendum aroused the Tea Party, a well-funded anti-tax group, who lobbied hard against the proposed increase in funds. 

Supporters of the library had to get voters not to see the referendum as being about money but about the services the library provided.
