Shri for We.
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.
Shri Thanedar, a scientist, entrepreneur and one of the four Democratic candidates for governor, told attendees at a town hall in Ann Arbor this month that he would ban charter schools managed by for-profit companies if elected.
A fundraising letter signed by top executives from Blue Cross Blue Shield is just another example of Gretchen Whitmer continuing to line her campaign coffers with contributions from corporate special interests and the wealthy and well-connected.
Shri Thanedar today said he would look to release non-violent marijuana offenders convicted of marijuana-based crimes currently sitting in prisons and jails soon after taking office.
