‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer’ Announces Formation to Help Elect Former Senate Democratic Leader - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 20, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer’ Announces Formation to Help Elect Former Senate Democratic Leader Group includes former Snyder, Engler, Milliken cabinet officials, co-author of Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act LANSING – Today a group of Republican and Independent leaders from across the state announced the formation of a new coalition to help elect former Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer as the next Governor of Michigan. ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer’ will be co-chaired by former U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz (R-Battle Creek), Jim Haveman, the former Director of the Michigan Department of Community Health under Governor John Engler and Governor Rick Snyder, Richard McLellan, who served as Transition Director to then Governor-Elect John Engler, and Vivian Carpenter, who served as Deputy State Treasurer under Governor Bill Milliken. “Now more than ever, Michigan needs a governor who knows how to put partisanship aside to get things done,” said Haveman. “As Director of DCH under Governor Snyder, I worked across the aisle with Sen. Whitmer when she was putting the votes together to pass Medicaid expansion, and because of the bipartisan work we did, 680,000 Michiganders now have access to health care. That’s exactly the kind of leadership our state needs right now to keep building on Michigan’s economic comeback.” Additional members of ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer’ include: Trish Foster, retired Senior Managing Director and COO at CBRE-Martin; former Rep. Mel Larsen (R-Oakland County), co-author of the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act; Mary McLellan, a retired Department of Civil Rights employee; Bill Milliken, Jr., Real Estate Broker at Milliken Realty and son of former Governor Bill Milliken; Rod Nelson, retired CEO of Mackinac Straits Health System; John Pirich, a partner at Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn; Dennis Smith, retired CEO of the UP Health Plan; Paul Tarr, President of PM Tarr and Associates; Gina Yob, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for 3S International LLC. “I’m fed up with all the partisan bickering in Lansing and Washington,” said Dr. Schwarz. “Our state is facing some real challenges, and we need a serious leader who can bring people together to actually solve problems. Gretchen has shown she’s not afraid to work with Republicans to find common ground and build consensus on important issues like expanding Medicaid.” “I’m a lifelong Republican, and I’m supporting Gretchen Whitmer [DATE REMOVED] because she’s the best person for the job,” said McLellan. “While the Attorney General has disingenuously argued we can pay for new roads without any new revenue, this is a serious issue and conservative voters like me understand that it will take money to fix them. Meanwhile, Gretchen Whitmer has offered pragmatic solutions to attract businesses to Michigan by rebuilding our infrastructure the right way and clean up our drinking water, and that’s a big part of why I’m putting partisanship aside [DATE REMOVED] and working to send Gretchen to the governor’s office.” “Gretchen just gets it,” said Carpenter. “She’s someone who always stands up for what she believes in, but she’s also someone who knows how to listen and work with folks on the other side of the aisle to get things done. That’s the only way to change everything that’s wrong in Michigan with divisive politics.” Republican and Independent voters who wish to join the group to support Whitmer may sign up online at www.gretchenwhitmer.com/republicansindependents.   # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Gubernatorial Candidates Announce General Election Debate Schedule Next Post   Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, Nassar Survivors Call on Schuette to Denounce Shameful GOP Attack Ad Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Whitmer Joins Call for Investigation into PFAS Contamination - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON JULY 16, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Joins Call for Investigation into PFAS Contamination LANSING — Today, former Senate Democratic Leader and Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer released the following statement after reports revealed that warnings of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, contamination in Michigan were made in 2012. “Ignoring credible warnings of PFAS contamination is yet another example of how leaders like Governor Rick Snyder and Bill Schuette have put dollars and cents ahead of people’s lives. Michigan is home to more than 21 percent of the world’s fresh water, but right now dozens of sites across the state have been identified as being contaminated with PFAS. We cannot continue to ignore this administration’s failures to protect our drinking water. It’s time for a thorough investigation on why the Snyder administration suppressed the 2012 report” Whitmer has released a plan to create a Department of the Great Lakes and Fresh Water to protect Michigan’s drinking water. Whitmer will address PFAS contamination by restocking the Clean Michigan Initiative fund with the financial resources needed to address this man-made catastrophe, applying for grants to secure federal funding and holding polluters accountable for their mistakes. Funding will be used for clean-up efforts, home and utility filtration systems for Michigan residents and creating a statewide, publicly available database of all known groundwater resources and contaminated aquifer systems across Michigan. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation Next Post   Whitmer Blasts Schuette Plan to Ban Abortion in Michigan Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Make Health Care More Affordable - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Make Health Care More Affordable HOME ISSUES MAKE HEALTH CARE MORE AFFORDABLE Everyone in Michigan has a right to quality health care they can afford, and that means expanding coverage and lowering costs. We are reaching a critical point where the cost of health care plans – with skyrocketing premiums and deductibles – is too high for most families, seniors, and hardworking Michiganders. While I’m proud of the work I did to expand health care in Michigan, we have a long way to go. No one should have to choose between paying the rent or filling a prescription. As Governor, I’ll stand up to Washington when politicians try to take health coverage away from people, and I’ll work with anyone who wants to expand coverage, and lower costs of health care, starting with prescription drugs. Expanding Medicaid. As Senate Democratic Leader, I led negotiations to expand access to healthcare to more than 680,000 Michiganders through the state’s Medicaid expansion. Healthy Michigan added 30,000 jobs per year to our state and $2.3 billion to our economy. Protecting our care. We fought too hard to let Washington raise costs on seniors, families, and hardworking Michiganders. As Governor, I will defend our health care from these attacks, but we must keep fighting to address the cost of health care and lower the cost of prescription drugs until everyone in Michigan has access to an affordable health plan and can afford their treatment. Restoring funding to Planned Parenthood so that women and men in low income and rural areas have access to preventative care like screenings and checkups, contraception, and maternity care. Access to care in rural Michigan by enlisting technology, bringing people together, and harnessing the incredible talent of our state to find solutions to the challenges faced by rural hospitals and care providers. I’m ready to bring people together to find solutions so that every Michigander, no matter where they live, gets the care they need.
