Repeal The Retirement Tax - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Repeal The Retirement Tax HOME ISSUES REPEAL THE RETIREMENT TAX After a lifetime of hard work, we must honor the promises made to our seniors so that they can retire in dignity in the state that they love. But right now working families and seniors are paying higher taxes under Governor Snyder As governor, I will protect our seniors and retirees by: Getting rid of the Snyder Retirement Tax, which will put more money in the pockets of Michigan seniors to spend on things like gas, groceries, and prescription drugs – which will help our small businesses grow and create jobs. Supporting options for independence at home, which should be a reality for more seniors who deserve financial and medical peace of mind. I will stand up to attacks on senior care, and will fight to improve coordinated medical benefits so that seniors can receive the healthcare they need in the comfort of their own homes for as long as they wish. Working to end elder abuse. As Senate Democratic Leader, I championed laws to create serious legal consequences for elder abuse, and attempts to exploit, neglect, intimidate, harm, or steal from our seniors. As Governor, I will continue to honor, defend, and respect our seniors and their rights.

Michigan FOP endorses Whitmer for governor - Gretchen Whitmer for Governor54%Skip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 13, 2018 BY ZACK POHL Michigan FOP endorses Whitmer for governor Democratic candidate for governor Gretchen Whitmer has earned the endorsement of the Michigan Fraternal Order of Police (MIFOP) for the [DATE REMOVED] election. “Although both candidates are well versed on law enforcement issues and would lead our state well, our committee ultimately decided to support Whitmer,” explains Mike Sauger, MFOP president.  “It was a difficult decision with two well qualified candidates.  Because she has worked with several governors over the years, we believe she will work most effectively on both sides of the aisle.” Through a selection process that included in person interviews with both candidates at the MIFOP office, a five member committee made the endorsement decision on behalf of the MIFOP membership. “We look forward to having a productive, open door relationship with the next governor,” says David Hiller, MIFOP executive director.  “Law enforcement issues are central to protecting public safety and we appreciate the high priority that both candidates place on them.” Founded in 1939, the Michigan chapter of the FOP is focused on protecting public safety.  MIFOP is Michigan’s largest and oldest law enforcement organization with 7,500 active members and 3,000 associate members in more than 50 lodges throughout the state. # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Whitmer Announces Garlin Gilchrist II as Running Mate Next Post   Gubernatorial Candidates Announce General Election Debate Schedule Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

‘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.
