Happy birthday from Sen. Arlan Meekhof! The new ‪#‎MeekhofGasTax‬ increase is en route AND a 20% increase in vehicle registration will be waiting for you at the Secretary of State on your b-day!

His mailers against Sarah Howard claiming he would FIGHT tax increases and CONTROL spending were a lie, he stabbed Ottawa County in the back and deserves to be recalled.

MIRS wrote of the plan:

"Under the plan, the gas tax would be increased from 19 to 26.3 cents per gallon starting Jan. 1, 2017, which happens to be after the House's 2016 elections. Along with an increase to diesel fuel costs and diesel parity, this piece of the plan is intended to generate $400 million. Registration fees would see a 20 percent across-the-board"

Here are Meekhof's false promises to Ottawa County voters last year:
