Fact: First, the vast majority of the people at that meeting back in June were Saugatuck Township residents. (The Township is no longer part of the consolidation proposal, so this opposition is moot.) They were also the vast majority of those expressing an opinion on consolidation. Second, if the opposing group is so certain they're in the majority, why have they fought so desperately to keep consolidation from reaching the voters? The only research on public support for consolidation was a phone poll conducted by Mitchell Research back in 2010 found 74% support in the two cities. One might call that "overwhelming."
