News and quick-hit commentary from around mid-Michigan ... from the Morning Sun.

Mark makes some interesting points about Kathie Elliott's road commission win below, I would add a couple things:

1. I' ve heard several people mention they met her while she was out doing door-to-door campaigning. Local politics is still about meeting people and talking to them.

2. She shows up quite often at county commission meetings. That gives her a first-person familiarity with the workings of the county board, which has so often been at odds with the road commission. So maybe she'll be able to help thaw that icy relationship. Plus, her presence normally increases citizen attendance at the meeting by 30-50 percent.
