Have you ever thought about sending in the cash just on the chance that he’s telling the truth? You know the guy I am talking about; the one sending millions of e-mails around the world offering you a handsome reward if you can only help him move $25 million of his family’s fortune out of Nigeria. Your task–to send him $25,000, some paperwork or something like that and then, voila, his family’s stash is available and your very generous reward is in the mail to you!
Sound too good to be true?
What if I told you that there was $40 million locked up in a vault with your and my name on it?
Wait–it gets better–you only need to send in $12 (give or take a few bucks) to unlock the vault.
Wait one more minute–no need to get the check book out just yet–you don’t have to send in the money until 2012! You only need to commit to send the money in 2012 and then, voila, $40 million is on the way to you and me!
Our generous reward? A piece of 21st century infrastructure to support the development up on Michigan Street Hill and to drive the redevelopment along a forgotten corridor to the south.
This is no Nigerian offer. This is the Silver Line!
So, ready to help unlock the $40 million treasure? Just one piece of paper is needed and a little of your time.
As for the paper, endorse the Silver Line Millage today!
As for a bit of your time, come celebrate the official beginning of the Silver Line Campaign at the Kick Off Celebration at Tommy Brann’s on March 24th at 5:00pm!
If you’re really looking to make sure we get our reward, volunteer to help on the campaign!
All we need is a yes vote on May 5th which is our pledge to raise our local taxes in 2012 and then the $40 million to build the Silver Line is on its way to our community. No kidding.
All for today.
