February 18,1987 ALPENA COMMUNITY COLLEGE'S STUDENT NEWSPAPER Volume 1 Issue 11 Administration presents millage passing strategy About 60 members of the ACC faculty and staff attend- ed a meeting Tuesday, Feb- ruary 17, concerning their participation in the upcoming millage election. The subject most stressed at the meeting was the needed participation of the staff. Forms containing 25 blank spaces were distributed to the attending faculty members. Each person was asked to complete the forms with “yes”? voters and return them by March 6. At that time, all-names completed list will be returned to the staff to call the day be- fore the vote. As it was point- -ed out, this puts much of the chance for success of the mil- lage into the hands of the faculty. This is because the number of people it is estimated will take to get the millage passed is 2,500. Since there are about ~ 100 faculty members, 25 people: from each person: would cause the millage to be passed. Also stressed was the idea that if the various high points of ACC’s involvement in the community, the vote would be further positively influenced. Such programs as the Wurt- smith extension, the Fitness Center, and the Science Olym- . piad could be presented for public consumption. Finally, the idea that even one vote can make a differec- ce was reiterated by Richard Matteson, president of the faculty. He pointed out that — Louis XVI was executed by a vote of 360 to 361.
