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.

Whitmer Announces Garlin Gilchrist II as Running Mate - 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 AUGUST 20, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Announces Garlin Gilchrist II as Running Mate Gilchrist represents next generation of rising Democratic Party leaders   DETROIT — Today Democratic gubernatorial nominee Gretchen Whitmer announced Garlin Gilchrist II as her running mate in the 2018 election. Gilchrist has a proven background in technology and community organizing that will help move Michigan’s government into the 21st century and get things done for families across the state. Gilchrist was born in Detroit and attended Detroit Public Schools until his family moved to Farmington when he was [DATE REMOVED] old. After graduating high school, he went on to graduate from the University of Michigan School of Engineering on a full academic scholarship. After college, he moved to Washington to work as a software engineer at Microsoft and serve as the Social Media Manager for the 2008 Obama campaign. Gilchrist also worked as a community organizer in Washington, D.C. at the Center for Community Change and MoveOn.org, where he spearheaded projects to protect and expand Medicaid. In 2014, Gilchrist and his wife, Ellen, made the decision to move back to Detroit to raise their family and help contribute to the future of the city. He served as the Detroit’s first-ever Director of Innovation & Emerging Technology and created a system for Detroiters to report problems in their communities, from potholes to broken street lights to clogged storm drains. “I’m so proud to partner with Gretchen as we work together to build a better Michigan for everyone,” said Gilchrist. “I was born in Detroit. I love this state, but like many young adults, after I graduated from U of M, I left Michigan behind for better opportunity. In 2014, my wife Ellen and I made the affirmative decision to come back to Detroit to help rebuild our city, to help repair our state, and to raise our children as Michiganders. I’m humbled and honored to join Gretchen Whitmer on the campaign trail, to bring people together from the UP to Detroit to solve problems and get things done for my children and for yours.” Gilchrist and his wife Ellen are the proud parents of twins Garlin III and Emily. “Garlin Gilchrist is a proven problem solver. He shares my commitment to public service, dedication to family, and love of Michigan and I’m proud to have him as a partner,” said Whitmer. “Garlin came back to Detroit and got to work solving problems that actually made a difference in people’s lives – from designing a system to report potholes, to fixing broken fire hydrants, to making city government more open and transparent. He is exactly the kind of young, innovative, and progressive problem-solver I need working with me in the governor’s office to move our state government forward and get things done for Michigan families, like fixing the damn roads, cleaning up our drinking water, repealing the retirement tax, and making sure every Michigander has a great public education that gets them on a path to a high wage skill.” The Michigan Democratic Party will vote on the Lieutenant Governor nominee at [DATE REMOVED]’s convention in East Lansing. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Whitmer Proposes Three Debates Focused on Education and Skills Training, Clean Water and Infrastructure, Affordable Health Care Next Post   Michigan FOP endorses Whitmer for governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

MI Nurses Association VP: "Bill Schuette is getting desperate" - Gretchen Whitmer for Governor46%Skip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON OCTOBER 17, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG MI Nurses Association VP: “Bill Schuette is getting desperate” LANSING – Today the Vice President of the Michigan Nurses Association, Katie Scott, RN, issued the following statement commenting on Bill Schuette’s latest campaign ad, where Schuette claims he “voted to protect patients with pre-existing conditions.” “Bill Schuette is getting desperate as he sees Gretchen Whitmer’s commitment to better health care for all Michigan residents hitting home with more and more voters,” said Scott. “Bill Schuette claiming he will create better health insurance is like Betsy DeVos saying she’ll create better public schools. Voters are smart enough to know when someone in power is looking out for the wealthy and not the rest of us. Nurses across the state want Bill Schuette to quit trying to bury his lawsuits to kill coverage of pre-existing conditions and the Medicaid expansion that millions of Michigan patients – and our own families – rely on every day.” # # #   Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Detroit Regional Chamber Endorses Gretchen Whitmer Over Bill Schuette for Governor Next Post   Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha Endorses Gretchen Whitmer for Governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
