Democrats, held a tax law town hall forum at Taylor city hall 23555 Goddard rd today . The event was organized by Congresswoman Debbie Dingell MI 12th District.  Other elected Democrats in attendance  MI State Rep. Erika Geiss , MI State Sen. Hoon-yung Hopgood, MI State Rep. Darrin Camilleri, MI State Rep. Cara Clemente, MI State Rep. Abdullah Hammoud, MI State Rep. Ronnie Peterson, MI State Rep. Adam Zemke.  The stated goal was to educate citizens about the harmful effects of the recent federal tax overhaul. Numerous Times it was stated this was a non-partisan discussion. I strongly disagree. Every comment made (by the elected democratic officials) reeked of partisan politics.  Congresswoman Dingell even took time to make a jab at President Trump. Congresswoman Dingell , referenced the recent controversy over alleged foul language used by Trump and used vulgar language herself by stating ” I don’t want to get in a pissing match”.  Public comments were allowed however, appeared to be rehearsed. Before the town hall, a confidential source stated “I witnessed 2 male individuals directing people to ask certain questions during the comment period”. The confidential source further alleged ” the 2 males directing people to ask certain questions were prominent union leaders”. I can not attest to the validity of the confidential sources allegations however, going by what i witnessed during the question period, I decided to include them here. Only three of the questions asked appeared to be genuine and not rehearsed. In closing this event was nothing more than a partisan event masquerading as a town hall, and was designed as a campaign event to promote democratic ideals.
