Does Garry Post live in the 47th district or in Ann Arbor (Scio Township)?

There's an old adage. Those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Garry Post has been doing nothing but attacking Cindy Denby. I have a question of my own to Post. Do you live in the district, or do you live in Scio Township (Between Ann Arbor and Dexter) in Washtenaw County? Go home, Garry.

Garry Post got my guard up when I saw two different homes listed as his address on the campaign finance reports. One was in Scio Township. The other was in Hamburg Twp. The Ann Arbor address wasn't the company he inherited, Post Realty. That is on Maynard Street.

His partner, Mr. Hill (not that there's anything wrong with that), also used both address, one in Scio and the other in Hamburg. Hill used both addresses for campaign reports. Post has an Scio Township address, and works in Ann Arbor, right next to Scio Township.

Scio Township is known for big homes. This one is no different and is a half million dollar plus home. Apparently, as Post is running in the 47th instead of the 52nd district, he does not live here at this house below. The owners are listed as Garry Post and Mr. Hill. Information can be found at Scio Township's website


He supposedly lives here instead. Source - Hamburg Township. Again, both Hill and Post are the owners. 500 square foot cottage on Ore Lake.



Those pictures are online from Township Websites. Does he live in a 500 sq foot cottage using the homestead to reduce his taxes (legal), or at the giant Scio Township house at the place homesteaded by his partner, Mr. Hill?

Garry's been throwing a lot of dirt at Cindy in the campaign. Why would he be concerned about Livingston County? He's got a half million dollar property in Scio Township he can move back to when the election's over.

Man, you are so full of shit. Garrod S. Post is a registered voter at 8417 Hillpoint Dr
Brighton, MI 48116-5193, and he has voted from that address in Hamburg Township since at least 2004.

He is not throwing any dirt around, just facts. I sat through those Handy Township meetings when they were giving the store away, and it appears they are headed for receivership. Howell Township appears to be in the same boat. That or all of the county taxpayers will be on the hook for her screw-up.

Post is registered there so he can get dual homesteads on property taxes the only legal way he can, through his partner. That's how the cottage is registered. I doubt that half million dollar place is empty in favor of a cottage year round.

Michigan doesn't have civil unions, so one's registered in Hamburg with the other in Scio. I don't care about that part, but Ann Arbor/Scio democrats do not need to be representing Livingston County.

Communications guru said...

Bullshit. He’s a registered voter in Hamburg Township; end of discussion. Try something else. What the hell do civil unions have to do with anything? Is that a signal to the extremist base?

It’s so nice to see your personal attacks on Garry. Obviously the Repubos are worried.

Ann Arbor/Scio democrats will not be representing Livingston County, but hopefully a Hamburg Township one will. After the fiscal irresponsibility of Republicans in this county, it’s clear we need a change.

Benny said...

The irresponsibility of the Republicans? The Democrats have been in power in Washington 4 yrs. How's that working out for you? You need a Candidate that will stay within the State and Federal Constitutions. Unless you’re a Socialist then you like the spending and barrowing. You need a physical conservative or you’re going to end up like California

A Conservative Teacher said...

I'm new to your blog and haven't a clue what you are talking about? Who are these people, and what exactly are you implying with your post? Clear it up for me. :)

Communications guru said...

That is correct, the fiscal irresponsibility of all Republican Livingston County Board of Commissioners. They are doing their best to keep it hidden until after the election, but it will come out very soon that county taxpayers are going to be responsible for more than $100 million in bad debit for sewer and water gifts to developers. They are going as far as hiding meeting minutes and getting a lame duck commissioner to take the blame. They are putting out more money on their false billboards about the county’s tax rates that will have to come down right after the election because they fear the public is starting to catch on to how irresponsible they were.

How is having Democrats in power working out fore me? Very well, thank you. We are out of the Bush recession, the longest and deepest since the Great Depression, despite every possible effort by Republicans to stall it.

What exactly is a “physical conservative,” and the problem with California is we had a Republican Governor.

Republican Michigander said...

A Conservative Teacher - Garry Post and Cindy Denby are running for the 47th district in Livingston County. It's shaped somewhat like a "C" and covers Western, Northern, and most of Southern parts of the county. Hamburg Township, where Post's cottage is, is in the 47th district.

The big house is in Scio Township next door to the City of Ann Arbor. Scio Township is in Washtenaw County and mostly in the 52nd district.

One of the problems we deal with in Livingston County is people moving from liberal places and then wanting to inject the same liberalism to this county from the places they used to live, like Ann Arbor. Garry Post isn't even a carpetbagger though except being registered to vote from his cottage. Unless he lives full time in that cottage (unlikely as the campaign finance reports have both Post and Hill using both addresses), he's running in the wrong district.

Communications guru said...

Man, you are absolutely full of shit. One of the problems we deal with in Livingston County is idiots like you who think you can only care about Livingston County if you lived here when Columbus found it, or you move here and want to close the door behind you. A typical NIMBY.

Garry Post is just like the majority of people who live here, and he is far, far from a carpet bagger. He’s running in the right district; the district he lives in, and nothing you can say will change that.

Tell you what, file, file a complaint. We already know from past experience that the SOS only goes after Democrats. If you don’t then shut the hell up.

The funny thing is you’re defending the fiscal irresponsibility of Cindy Denby who gave away the store to developers to make sure more people moved here. The county board is doing everything possible to hide from the public how much county taxpayers are going to get screwed for their incompetence.

Communications Guru - For someone who goes by that handle, you certainly have a limited vocabulary. Is it possible to express yourself without foul language?

As for the makeup of Livingston County, it has been conservative for many, many years and most of the people living here like it that way. Quit trying to bring your corrupt politics and false blame to our county.

And as for lies, you have completely misrepresented the issue over the special assessment districts. Just how do you sleep at night? Do you really believe that slander and lies is acceptable as long as you win the election?

Communications guru said...

You consider that foul language? Then you need to also talk to dan here, too. “Corrupt politics?” What we are trying to do is bring some transparency to the Board, which is sorely lacking. Most of the stuff, like the huge debt hiding meeting minutes and other stuff, would still be hidden if not brought out by the Democrats. After the election Livingston County taxpayers will be in for a big sticker shock.

Tell me how I “completely misrepresented the issue over the special assessment districts.” I sleep fine, especially when I’m right. I don’t “believe that slander and lies is (sic) acceptable,” so that’s why I refrain from doing either. That’s how Republicans win elections.
