Better Skills, Better Jobs - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Better Skills, Better Jobs HOME ISSUES BETTER SKILLS, BETTER JOBS There was a time when people from all over the world moved their families to Michigan in search of economic opportunity. Michiganders created the middle-class and put the world on wheels. Michigan was synonymous with innovation. We built great things. We offered a quality of life that was second to none. READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN That’s not reality for a lot of Michiganders today. Many Michigan families are struggling to get by. We have an economy of Haves and Have-Nots. According to the United Way’s 2017 Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) Report, 40 percent of Michiganders struggle to pay for basic necessities. Things like housing, food, transportation and health care are should be guarantees to every Michigander across the state, but they aren’t. Parents tell me all the time about their kids who move out of state, looking for opportunity elsewhere. Michigan’s median income is more than $5,000 below the national average, our roads are crumbling, almost 100 communities lack access to clean, drinkable water, and nearly 40 percent of our population is not working. Michigan’s “economic comeback” eludes a lot of small business owners, the working class, women, and people of color. At the same time, we are short on the skilled workforce that was once our hallmark. We must get more Michiganders on the path to high-wage skills, because a concentration of talent benefits us all. Michigan must target, grow, and recruit the strongest, fastest growing industries of the future and offer the talent, place, education and infrastructure necessary to compete with the world. That’s why this jobs plan focuses on raising household incomes by expanding education and skills training, investing in our infrastructure, aggressively pursuing economic development and supporting small business growth so that everyone has a path to a good job and a secure future. It’s not a real comeback until everyone feels it. Every Michigander deserves a path to a high-wage skill, economic opportunity and an income that supports their family. My plan for improving Michigan’s economy and creating high-paying jobs focuses on: High-Wage Skills Closing the Economic Inequity Gap Unleashing Michigan’s Economic Development Potential Helping Small Businesses Compete READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN DOWNLOAD THE FACT SHEET RETURN TO ISSUES Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Whitmer Crushes Bill Schuette in First Gubernatorial Debate - 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 OCTOBER 12, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Crushes Bill Schuette in First Gubernatorial Debate GRAND RAPIDS — Eric Goldman, Campaign Manager for Gretchen Whitmer for Governor, issued the following statement on tonight’s first gubernatorial debate in Grand Rapids: “Gretchen Whitmer crushed Bill Schuette tonight. And it wasn’t close. No matter how hard he tries, Bill Schuette can’t hide from his record of joining nine lawsuits to rip health care away from 680,000 Michiganders and ignoring 15 complaints to his office on the Flint water crisis. Tonight Gretchen stayed focused on the issues that matter most to Michigan families, like finally fixing the damn roads, cleaning up our drinking water, and getting our kids the skills they need to help our kids compete for good-paying jobs, and that’s exactly what she’ll do as our next governor.” ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Black Economic Alliance endorses Gretchen Whitmer for Governor Next Post   Detroit Regional Chamber Endorses Gretchen Whitmer Over Bill Schuette for Governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Clean Up Our Drinking Water - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Clean Up Our Drinking Water HOME ISSUES CLEAN UP OUR DRINKING WATER The health of our communities and the strength of our economy depend on the fundamentals of clean air, safe water, and nutritious food. Every Michigander deserves the opportunity to be successful, starting with their health. That means protecting the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil in which we grow. But disparities in the quality of air and water based on where you live or on your income, have had a devastating impact on the health of our families and our kids. It is this very injustice that caused the Flint water crisis. Water is the lifeblood of our state, and the Great Lakes are at the center of it. Michigan will disproportionately suffer the impact of climate change, and rising temperatures have already done harm to our lakes, but we can change course. READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN For the sake of our health, our economy, and the nearly 1,000,000 jobs in fishing, farming, and tourism that are anchored on the Great Lakes, we must act now. As Governor, I am committed to: Clean up our drinking water. As governor, I will fight to clean up Michigan’s drinking water, unlike the Snyder administration’s failures. My infrastructure plan will speed up the replacement of lead service lines across the state so every parent can turn on their tap, bathe their kids, and give them a glass at the dinner table. Protect the Great Lakes Not just for our rich heritage, their pristine beauty, or the nearly one million jobs they help generate for our state, but because it is our responsibility as the stewards of over 20% of earth’s freshwater and the groundwater that goes with it. Some of my favorite memories include swimming in the Thornapple River, fishing off the dock in Onekama with my brother and sister, and climbing the dunes on Lake Michigan. Climate change has impacted our lakes by lowering water tables and stimulating massive algae blooms. We must also do more to prevent a more aggressive spread of invasive species like Asian carp and lampreys. We in Michigan are defined by our water, and it’s up to us to protect it. Enter Michigan into the US Climate Alliance When the federal government withdrew the United States from the Climate Agreement, I called on Governor Snyder to join hundreds of mayors and a dozen governors across the nation in committing to lowering carbon emissions. He refused, but I won’t. I am committed to fighting for our air and water. To lead the world in water policy We have research universities, we have midwestern grit, and we have water. As Governor, I will bring people together to make Michigan a world leader in water policy. Relying on science, facts and truly independent studies to guide how we address the challenges of balancing our environmental impact, jobs, and the sanctity of our waterways. An oil spill in the Great Lakes would be absolutely devastating to our environment and our economy. We can’t afford to sit around and wait for disaster to strike, we need Governor Snyder and Bill Schuette to stop making excuses and announce an immediate plan to shut down Line 5. Enough is enough. If they don’t have the guts to do their jobs and take action, we’ll get it done when I’m governor. On the day I take office, I will immediately file to enjoin the easement and begin the legal process for shutting down Line 5 to protect the Great Lakes, protect our drinking water and protect Michigan jobs. Hiring impartial experts To oversee and regulate our emissions standards will ensure that scientists, and not corporate interests, are making the decisions that impact our water and air.

Schuette’s desperation was on full display as he struggled once again to defend his record of filing nine lawsuits to rip health care away from 680,000 Michiganders and gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions like cancer and autism. Meanwhile, Gretchen focused on her bipartisan record of working across the aisle to expand Medicaid, demonstrating that she is the only candidate who can bring people together to solve problems and get things done, like finally fixing the damn roads, cleaning up our drinking water, and protecting health care.” ###   Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Deputy Sheriffs Association of Michigan Endorses Whitmer for Governor Next Post   New Poll: Whitmer Leads Schuette by 11pts, Outside Groups Abandon Schuette Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
