Event Description

The Supreme Court presentation is an overview of the Constitutional and historical role of Courts -- their powers and their limits.  It discusses the traditional American view of the role of courts and judges in democracy (sometimes referred to as rule of law judging), how that has been undermined in the last fifty years (by what is usually called judicial activism), and the impact that change has had on self-government.  Those issues are examined through concrete examples of Court decisions, and video clips of judges and politicians discussing those same issues.  It closes with a discussion of the 2012 Michigan Supreme Court elections, in which those principles will be sharply debated and in which the voters will choose whether to keep the Supreme Court a rule of law Court, or will instead embrace judicial activism.
You will also get a chance to meet some candidates running for the Plymouth/Canton School Board.  Nick named the "Fiscal Four"  Mike Maloney, Mark Horvath, Mike Andro and Matt Dame, have asked to come and tell us why they are running for the positions and will take some questions from the audience.
Make plans to attend - it's time to get educated (and educate those around you) on decisions and actions that will continue to shape our state and country's future.
