The Say Yes to Seniors Coalition is a data driven advocacy group that has analyzed the availability of resources to support quality aging in Washtenaw and concluded that improvements are needed.  Many other Michigan counties have a higher level of services and the main reason is that 73 of Michigan's 83 counties have a county-wide senior service millage, while Washtenaw County does not.  The documents below provide evidence that supports our assertion that a senior millage is needed in Washtenaw County as well as a citizens Commission on Aging.
