Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad - 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 [DATE REMOVED] 1, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad DETROIT — Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign began airing a radio ad featuring former President Barack Obama. The 60-second ad focuses on Whitmer’s work as Senate Democratic Leader to expand Medicaid to more than 680,000 Michiganders and her plans to clean up our drinking water and improve education and skills training. “I’m so proud to have the support of President Obama because this election is so crucial for Michiganders,” said Whitmer. “Health care is on the ballot this [DATE REMOVED]. Clean drinking water and good schools for our kids are on the ballot. It’s so important that everyone gets out and votes so we can start solving problems for the people of our state. Let’s get it done.” “Gretchen Whitmer is keeping her foot on the gas and doing everything she can to turn out voters and help elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” said Whitmer for Governor Deputy Communications Director Eileen Belden. “Meanwhile, Republicans are abandoning Bill Schuette left and right, and his campaign has cancelled ad buys across the state as Michiganders reject his record of trying to rip health care away from hundreds of thousands of people.” CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE AD AD SCRIPT: PRESIDENT OBAMA: “This is Barack Obama. In this election, the health of millions is on the ballot. The character of our country is on the ballot. And your vote can make the difference. As Senate Leader, Gretchen Whitmer worked to raise the minimum wage and expand Medicaid so that 680,000 people now have health care. That’s huge. Gretchen believes, like I do, that every child deserves a good school and safe water to drink. And she has a plan to give people the skills and training they need to get good jobs, starting in high school. You’re not going to have to wonder if she’ll protect your health care or fight for good jobs, good wages, and good schools. She’s proven that she will. Gretchen never gives up. So make a plan for [DATE REMOVED] and take some friends with you to vote for Gretchen Whitmer. Let’s bring it home, Michigan.” NARRATOR: “Find your polling place and vote [DATE REMOVED] 6th between [DATE REMOVED] and [DATE REMOVED].

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. READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN To accomplish this goal, my administration will pursue policies in the following areas: Pathways to Employment Closing the Economic Inequity Gap Safe Communities and Affordable Housing Ending Racial Disparities 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.

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.
