About Us

Beginnings

Linda Hillis inspiring Van Buren County to participate in government.

Ms. Linda Hillis [above left ]  went to the Van Buren County mayor and asked what she could do about the new Wheel Tax and the Solid Waste Fee. Approximately 160 verifiable registered voter signatures in 7 days would give Van Buren County citizens the right to vote on the tax. Ms. Hillis started the petition. Others helped. The Special Election, held on  Feb 7, 2019, had high voter participation. The Wheel Tax did not pass.
