Candidate Verna Babula
History and Evaluation of the Candidate
Verna Babula, together with Jackie Ryan, emerged on the Sterling Heights political scene after several years of debate in the council chambers by citizens concerned about the implementation of so-called “Smart Meters” by DTE.
Mrs. Babula contends that Smart Meters represent a violation of our Fourth Amendment Constitutional Rights, and fighting against their implementation, which is currently under way in Sterling Heights, forms the sole reason for her campaign. For a thorough examination of this argument, watch the video linked here.
Mrs. Babula is badly misinformed on the Smart Meter issue, the Fourth Amendment, and the purview of City Council, which is not allowed under Michigan state law to make any local regulations regarding public utilities.
In addition to her Smart Meter activism, Ms. Babula has been recorded at a recent city council meeting advocating for the creation of a local immigration board which would have final say over who would and who would not be allowed to resettle in Sterling Heights. She cites the news of the resettlement of 10,000 people from the Syrian refugee crisis in southeast Michigan as having the potential to bring in people who are diseased or members of ISIS.
I am recommending you NOT vote for Verna Babula on November 3, 2015.
