Earley, Jr., the former CEO of DTE Energy; Wright L. Lassiter III, President and CEO of Henry Ford Health System; Florine Mark, President and CEO of the Weight Watchers Group; and Cindy Pasky, Founder, President and CEO of Strategic Staffing Solutions. “Gretchen has real plans that work for Michigan businesses,” said Pasky. “Her ability and willingness to reach across the aisle to bring both parties together is good for business, for workers, and good for our economy. Her plans focus on building a Michigan that will attract business and ensure that Michiganders have access to training and good jobs. Gretchen is the right kind of leader for the governor’s office because she’ll work to ensure we all thrive in Michigan.” Additional members of ‘Business Leaders for Whitmer’ include: Dennis Archer, Jr., CEO, Ignition Media Group; Lizabeth Ardisana, Owner and CEO, ASG Renaissance; George Barnes, Founder, Heritage Optical Center; JoAnn Chavez, Vice President, DTE Energy; Stephen D’Arcy, Partner, Quantum Group LLC; Walter E.

Building a more inclusive and welcoming state is how we’ll attract talent and grow our economy here in Michigan.” “Business owners in Michigan need Gretchen in the governor’s office if we want our businesses to grow and thrive here,” said Mark. “Gretchen has real plans to create jobs and build an economy that works for women-owned businesses like mine and all business owners. She’s going to actually support women business owners so we have the talent and the resources we need. This is exactly the kind of leadership we need in Lansing to build a better Michigan for everyone, and I know Gretchen will get it done as our next governor.” [DATE REMOVED] the Whitmer campaign announced a group of ‘Republicans and Independents for Whitmer,’ which included the former Chair of the Michigan Republican Party, Mel Larsen, former U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz (R-Battle Creek), and a number of former Snyder, Engler and Milliken cabinet officials.

Fighting Urban Poverty - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Fighting Urban Poverty HOME ISSUES FIGHTING URBAN POVERTY Michigan used to be the place people flocked to for opportunity. Our cities were bustling with jobs and growing rapidly. This was the state families of varying races, nationalities and religions packed up and moved to because they knew the jobs that were available paid fair wages – regardless of the color of your skin. This was the place where automaking jobs provided a ladder up into the middle class for thousands of Michigan families, where you could earn enough to raise a family and buy the car you built at the factory. Michigan built the middle-class and created pathways to opportunity for people of all ethnicities who couldn’t find them elsewhere. But today Michigan cities are struggling. Municipalities across the state have suffered from drastic population loss, severe cuts in state funding for essential services, economic development that fails to reach residential neighborhoods, and a state government that values profits over people – particularly in communities of color. Many families living in Michigan cities today are struggling just to get by, much less get ahead. In 2017, Wayne County Executive Warren Evans and I joined leaders from urban communities across the state in an Urban Listening Tour. Too many candidates talk about issues they don’t understand without taking the time to have meaningful conversations with real people. After touring the state and hearing directly from people who face these challenges every day, I have a deeper understanding of the policies our state needs to revitalize our cities, embrace our diversity as a strength and get things done that will help fight urban poverty. Solving these problems will require a strong partnership with state, local and community leaders. As governor, I am committed to bringing people together to build strong, vibrant and healthy communities across the state, so we can build a better Michigan for everyone.
