Oakland County Exec Brooks Patterson reverses plan, won't sue to stop state smoking ban!

For anyone who called and e-mailed Brooks (see the post immediately below), thank you and congratulations. We changed his mind!

In a surprise reversal, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said Thursday he intends to withdraw a lawsuit filed Thursday against the State of Michigan for not providing the requisite funding to counties to enforce the smoking ban law, which takes effect May 1.
"I have had 70 phone calls and 30 e-mails criticizing what I was about to do," said Patterson. "I am a public servant. I work for these people. So I have decided to withdraw the lawsuit."
