X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Meet Gretchen Whitmer HOME ABOUT MEET GRETCHEN WHITMER Gretchen Whitmer is a proven fighter, who has mobilized Michiganders to take on the big problems facing our state, and who has challenged the status quo in Lansing to get things done for all Michiganders. As a mom, former legislator, prosecutor, and Governor, she fights for the things that matter to people and put them first. Mom Gretchen lives in East Lansing with her husband Marc, daughters Sherry and Sydney, and stepsons Alex, Mason and Winston. Lifelong Michigander Gretchen is a lifelong Michigander. She was raised in Grand Rapids and East Lansing. Gretchen’s parents taught her and her siblings to work hard.

A proud product of our public schools and graduate of Michigan State University, Gretchen built a life close to home – even moving into a house in the same neighborhood where she grew up. Gretchen ran for governor to build a better Michigan so everyone can build a life for themselves right here, and in the state that’s home to 21 percent of the Earth’s fresh water, Gretchen will work to protect our Great Lakes and clean up our drinking water. Listener Whitmer learned from her parents – her Mom a Democrat, her Dad a “Milliken” Republican – that everyone is important. That’s why as a candidate in 2018, she’s visited all 83 counties in Michigan to listen to community members about the issues that they’re facing. As governor, Gretchen has focused on the things that have actually made a difference in people’s lives right now, like fixing the roads, making health care more affordable, improving education and skills training, cleaning up our drinking water, repealing the retirement tax and managing Michigan through the coronavirus pandemic.

Prosecutor In 2016, Gretchen stepped up to serve as Ingham County Prosecutor, restoring faith in the office after the elected prosecutor was forced to resign following a scandal. She cleaned up a mess and implemented stronger ethics standards. She established a new Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Unit to go after abusers, sped up the rehabilitation of non-violent first-time offenders, and asked the Michigan State Police to investigate the integrity of the county’s evidence room. Educator After her service to the state, Gretchen taught at the University of Michigan and Michigan State University.
