Shri for We.
LET’S MOVE MICHIGAN FORWARD. JOIN THE MOVEMENT.
Stronger, Smarter Michigan.
Today, those in Lansing tell us that giving taxpayer money to big corporations will magically improve the lives of ordinary Michiganders.
We know this doesn’t work.
What we need is a Michigan that provides high-paying jobs, gives a helping hand to small businesses and creates a culture of startups and entrepreneurship.
We need to build an economy that works for all of us and not just the wealthiest among us. To do this, we need to end non-productive, corporate welfare and invest in human capital, creating jobs and supporting small businesses.
Together, we will bring a new governing culture to Lansing. We will require ethics and transparency and fight back against the influence of billionaires. We end the pay-to-play era in Lansing.
We will create a stronger Michigan.
I am a progressive Democrat but I won’t be afraid to listen to good advice just because it comes from someone in another party. I am also a scientist and I know that to serve the needs of all the people of Michigan, we need to partner with all interested parties to arrive at common-sense, cost-effective solutions for Michigan’s most common problems.
Issues such as clean water, quality education, and an economy that supports small businesses will be my top priorities.
Scientist and award-winning entrepreneur Shri Thanedar’s gubernatorial campaign will debut its first television ad on Tuesday, Dec. 12, titled “Science.” The ad highlights Thanedar’s pledge not to accept contributions from corporate special interests and introduces him as “the only scientist and the most progressive Democrat running for Governor.”
He spoke of his understanding and knowledge of climate change, a need to keep the Great Lakes clean and pure, and the importance of stopping large corporations from polluting the soil.
Thanedar Said Issues Facing Michigan Women Will No Longer Take A Backseat, Equal Pay, Domestic Abuse Registry, Paid Family Leave, Among Others
This dream big mindset carries into his policies on immigration. Having gone through the American immigration and citizenship process himself, Thanedar can directly relate to the struggles of immigrants today. However, he sees immigration as a “win-win” situation.
