Knezek. “Gretchen Whitmer is the only candidate we can trust to help connect returning veterans to the housing and employment opportunities they need to thrive here in Michigan. She’ll make sure our veterans have access to quality, affordable healthcare. I’m committed to working hard every day to make sure we elect Gretchen Whitmer to the governor’s office.” Additional members of ‘Veterans for Whitmer’ include:  Air Force Veteran Stephanie Zarb, Marine Corps veteran Jessica Bell, former Airborne Army 1st Lieutenant Scott Nichols, Navy veteran Fredric Bohm, Retired Navy Captain Richard Burn, Navy and Army veteran George “Tripp” Adams, Army veteran Eddie Lester, Army veteran Roderick Rickman, Army veteran George P. Barnes, Jr., Army veteran Adam Hollier. “Gretchen Whitmer is the only candidate I trust to fight for Michigan Veterans and make sure nothing like the tragedy at Grand Rapids Home for Veterans happens ever again,” said Tate. “I’m proud to support Gretchen because she’ll help returning veterans get a good job that pays them well so they can support their family and retire with dignity here in Michigan. That’s the kind of leadership we need to build a better Michigan for everyone.” “I’ve got Gretchen’s back in this election because I know she has mine,” said Sen. Gregory. “I know that when veterans like me come back from service and need a good job, a place to live, and affordable healthcare, Gretchen will help them. She’s the only candidate for governor who will work with everyone to build a Michigan where everyone can get on a path to a high wage skill so they can build a life for themselves and their families right here.” [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.

Michigan Nurses: Schuette Trying to Rewrite His Healthcare Record - 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 OCTOBER 8, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Michigan Nurses: Schuette Trying to Rewrite His Healthcare Record LANSING – Today the President of the Michigan Nurses Association issued the following statement commenting on Bill Schuette’s press conference, where the Attorney General desperately tried to rewrite his record on healthcare. “As a nurse, I am disgusted that Bill Schuette is trying to rewrite his past because he finally realizes that most Michigan residents don’t share his view that only the wealthy deserve health care,” said Jamie Brown, RN, president of the Michigan Nurses Association. “My colleagues and I see every day that healthcare coverage is a life-or-death matter for many, many Michigan families. Gretchen Whitmer is the only candidate for governor who can be trusted to protect the millions of Michigan residents with pre-existing conditions whose lives would be at risk if Bill Schuette has his way.” # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Michigan Firefighters: Bill Schuette is Bad for Retirees Next Post   Whitmer Launches Two Campaign Ads Featuring Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Prosecutor Kym Worthy Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

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.
