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.

Whitmer Releases Plan to Protect Roe v. Wade in Michigan - 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 JULY 24, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Releases Plan to Protect Roe v. Wade in Michigan DETROIT — Today former Senate Democratic Leader and Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer released her plan to protect and expand women’s reproductive rights by enshrining Roe v. Wade protections in state law. With the fate of Roe vs. Wade hanging in the balance with Donald Trump’s Supreme Court appointment, Whitmer’s plan will repeal the 1931 law that criminalizes abortion and reinstate funding for family planning. Read the plan here. “The stakes in this election couldn’t be higher for Michigan women and families,” said Whitmer. “As Governor, I will work fiercely to defend the rights of every Michigan woman, including women’s access to all forms of reproductive care and contraception. I am going to fight like hell to pass state laws that will protect women’s legal right to control their bodies and make their own decisions about whether and when to become a parent. The fate of Roe v. Wade and our constitutional rights are on the line in this election, and there is simply too much at stake for Michigan women to let Bill Schuette anywhere near the governor’s office.” “We can’t change the minds of people like Bill Schuette about whether women should have safe and legal access to all forms of reproductive care, but we sure can change where they sit,” said Lori Carpentier, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan. “Michigan women need a governor who will stand up and protect our rights. Gretchen Whitmer has a real plan to protect Roe v. Wade in state law, and she’s the only candidate in this race who actually knows how to get it done.” Whitmer’s plan includes: Repealing PA 328 of 1938, which criminalizes abortion and labels family planning medical professionals as felons. Restore family planning funding for low-income Michiganders that was cut by Governor Snyder and Lansing Republicans. Repealing Michigan’s “rape insurance” law. Requiring insurance companies to cover 365-day supplies of covered prescription contraceptives. Removing the 24-hour waiting period for an abortion. Ensuring health facilities cannot refuse to provide reproductive health services if withholding them would result in health risks. Fixing our burdensome and ineffective sexual education laws. Whitmer has also released plans to clean up Michigan’s drinking water, improve education and skills training, create more good-paying jobs, fix Michigan’s infrastructure and make state government more open, transparent and accountable. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Whitmer Blasts Schuette Plan to Ban Abortion in Michigan Next Post   Whitmer Releases Plan to Fight Urban Poverty Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Whitmer, just [DATE REMOVED] into office and preoccupied with her agenda for 2020, barely registered it. She was in a hurry to push forward on some of her campaign promises, like introducing an array of new education programs and repairing Michigan’s badly potholed roads. The state’s Republican lawmakers had blocked her at nearly every turn, but now, with the economy in Michigan and America booming, Whitmer had a plan to make an end-run around the Legislature by issuing $3.5 billion in bonds to help fund her projects. [DATE REMOVED] was going to be about building political momentum for that effort and gearing up for a presidential election in which Michigan, where Donald Trump won by just 10,704 votes in 2016, was again going to be an important battleground state.
