MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the news that Attorney General Bill Schuette will be announcing his candidacy for governor on Tuesday.
“The only people excited about a potential Governor Schuette are his wealthy donors like the DeVos family,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Bill Schuette has a long record of standing with corporate donors, while working against the best interests of Michigan’s working families. Under Bill Schuette’s watch and under complete GOP control of Michigan’s state government, we’ve seen our roads crumble, paychecks remain stagnant, voting rights taken away, college tuition skyrocket, and our neighborhood schools struggle due to lack of funding. Schuette represents more of the same: a Michigan where the wealthy have every whim tended to while working families struggle to make ends meet.”
Progress Michigan will be holding a rally outside of Schuette’s BBQ fundraiser in Midland on Tuesday to hold him accountable for his record.
