X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON OCTOBER 10, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Launches Two Campaign Ads Featuring Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Prosecutor Kym Worthy Ads focus on Whitmer’s record expanding health care, fighting for survivors DETROIT — Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign launched two new campaign ads ahead of the general election. The first 15-second ad, titled “Desk to Desk,” features Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and focuses on Whitmer’s record working across the aisle to expand Medicaid to more than 680,000 Michiganders. The second 15-second ad, titled “Away,” features Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy and focuses on Whitmer’s record of fighting for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault as Ingham County Prosecutor. CLICK HERE TO WATCH “DESK TO DESK” CLICK HERE TO WATCH “AWAY” “DESK TO DESK” MAYOR DUGGAN SCRIPT: As the Senate Leader, Gretchen Whitmer went desk to desk to get Republicans and Democrats to pass Medicaid expansion, and now 680,000 people have health care. Her leadership changed lives and saved lives. Imagine what she can do as governor. “AWAY” PROSECUTOR WORTHY SCRIPT: Gretchen Whitmer is fearless. As a prosecutor, she cracked down on domestic abusers and stood up for rape victims whose cases had been ignored. Gretchen isn’t afraid to tell the truth, even when some people don’t want to hear it. She’s the governor we need. Both commercials will begin airing on broadcast and cable TV stations in the Detroit media market starting today. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Michigan Nurses: Schuette Trying to Rewrite His Healthcare Record Next Post   New Group of ‘Veterans for Whitmer’ Forms to Help Elect Gretchen Whitmer as Michigan’s Next Governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Bridge MI: Michigan Gov. Whitmer on tough first year: ‘I did what I said I was going to’ - 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 DECEMBER 20, 2019 BY ZACK POHL Bridge MI: Michigan Gov. Whitmer on tough first year: ‘I did what I said I was going to’ LANSING –  She’s the popular “fix the damn roads” candidate whose roads plan crashed and burned at the Capitol. A former legislator who clashed with lawmakers. A rising star in national Democratic politics bogged down by political infighting in her own state. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s first year in office was, in many ways, defined by another first: The state’s first period of divided government [DATE REMOVED]. The Republican-led Legislature blocked some of the Democratic governor’s top priorities, fought back when Whitmer flexed her muscle with executive authority, called her names and refused to let her drive the agenda in a state they were both elected to lead.   Read the full article here.

Improve Education & Skills Training - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Improve Education & Skills Training HOME ISSUES IMPROVE EDUCATION & SKILLS TRAINING A generation ago, Michigan led the world in public education. This was the state families packed up and moved to because parents knew their children could get a quality education and the skills they needed to get a good-paying job. As a mom with two daughters in high school, these are the same opportunities I want for my own kids. But over the [DATE REMOVED], Republicans in Lansing have sided with Betsy DeVos to push an education agenda that included slashing school funding, expanding unaccountable for-profit managed charter schools, over-emphasizing standardized tests, attacking hard-working educators and adopting a one-size fits all approach to education that has left our kids behind. This agenda has resulted in Michigan being near the bottom of the country on almost every meaningful metric from student literacy to college preparedness. Our educational crisis affects urban, rural and suburban school systems alike, and it disproportionately affects kids who are at-risk or have special needs. It doesn’t have to be like this. READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN Michigan needs a governor who knows how to get things done to fix our schools, so every student has the support, tools and skills they need to compete for high-wage jobs and have full and productive lives. Students are preparing for jobs that don’t even exist today, which means we must teach them how to think critically, to problem solve complex issues and to work as a team. That’s what this agenda is all about. My plan focuses on the first [DATE REMOVED] of a child’s life. We will prioritize early childhood education funding and get Michigan on a path to universal preschool to ensure that when kids enter kindergarten, they are ready to learn. When children enter school, they need safe classrooms with high quality teachers to meet them where they are and help them succeed. Michigan will respect our educators and treat them as professionals, instead of attacking them for Lansing’s policy failures. We will expand offerings that give every child – regardless of their zip code – exposure to a full curriculum of classes and opportunities to find the right path for their future. Lastly, when a child reaches high school, we need to help them develop a plan so they leave prepared for further education – be it with a certificate in the skilled trades, technical apprenticeship or to pursue a college track career. We must provide pathways of equal rigor for all these options. We will expose students to a wider variety of jobs earlier, so they have time to pursue classes that prepare them for life in the workforce. If their path is college, we will help them select the best one for their needs and provide a two-year debt-free talent investment if they work hard. Making these changes won’t be easy, but I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and work with anyone who is serious about finding solutions to improve our schools and help every student build a good life right here in Michigan. My plan for improving public education focuses on: Quality Education from Cradle to Career Paths to Prosperity with a Highly Educated Workforce Respect for Educators Stabilizing School Funding and Improving Accountability 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.
