New downsized Kalamazoo County Board meets for the first time.

by
Reelected County Board Chair David Maturen says their "can-do" members can get their work done without Kicking any cans down any roads.
The smaller size of the Commission left so much room between the dais and the audience that it prompted Maturen to ask "Who Shrunk the board?"
Reelected County Board Chair David Maturen says their "can-do" members can get their work done without Kicking any cans down any roads.

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --They won’t be “kicking the can down the road” at the Kalamazoo County Board. Newly reelected Board Chair Dave Maturen has taken a standard 16-ounce tin can, slapped a County Logo on it and plans to perch on his desk at every meeting as a reminder.

"Kicking the Can" is one of those phrases that Lake Superior State would like to ban, which has just become more overused now that Congress has voted to put off the debate on budget cuts for two months.

The new 11-member Kalamazoo County Commission met for the first time last night to get organized for the new year and their new terms in office. 

Vice Chair David Buskirk was also reelected to serve another year.  Buskirk says State and Federal officials could also learn how democrats and republicans can work together by observing their board.  Maturen is a republican and Buskirk is a Democrat.
