ANN ARBOR (Oct. 5, 2017) Shri Thanedar, Democratic candidate for governor, is taking his campaign north this weekend, to Leelanau County and Traverse City. Thanedar’s weekend plans include meeting with the Leelanau County Democratic Party, chatting with community members and local precinct delegates, and strolling the streets of Downtown Traverse City for a small business tour.

“When I announced my candidacy in June, I made a promise to visit every community in order to learn what issues matter most to all Michiganders,” said Thanedar. “I’m looking forward to getting to know members of the Leelanau County Democratic party, and learning what they expect out of Michigan’s next governor.”

Thandedar’s agenda for Saturday, Oct. 7 is as follows:

  • 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. – Thanedar will speak and take questions at the Leelanau County Democratic Party’s leadership meeting, located in the Munnecke Room at the Leland Township Library. Topics of discussion will include healthcare, economy, education, and protecting Michigan’s environment.
  • 1:30-2:30 p.m. – Community members and precinct delegates are invited to hear Thanedar share his vision for Michigan over a cup of coffee at Pedaling Beans Coffeehouse, located at 116 E. Philip St., Lake Leelanau, MI 49653.
  • 4-5:30 p.m. – Thanedar’s Traverse City small business tour will kick off on Front Street with the goal of meeting and speaking with as many small business owners as possible.

“As a business owner I understand the important contributions small businesses make to our state’s economy, and how difficult it is to thrive,” said Thanedar. “I believe by fostering a start-up culture and increasing support for aspiring entrepreneurs, we can jump-start Michigan’s economy.”
