Deep Cuts At Selfridge Hope To Be Offset By Addition Of Air Transport Planes

HARRISON TWP. (AP) – U.S. Rep. Sander Levin says he’s hopeful that a Pentagon decision to add 24 C-130 air transport planes will offset sharp job cuts planned at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township.

Levin says the announcement “is a positive step in the battle for equitable treatment of the guard.” The Royal Oak Democrat says he’ll press to see that the C-130s are based at Selfridge.

The Obama administration budget for fiscal year 2013 now calls for cutting a net 450 part-time and 200 full-time jobs at Selfridge with the relocation of two-dozen A-10 Thunderbolt attack aircraft.
