“Tonight the governor highlighted the progress we have made streamlining and simplifying state government for Michigan’s hard-working taxpayers. Although we have made great strides, we still have work to do in returning Michigan to its full potential. The governor stressed some of these challenges in tonight’s speech and though there are no easy answers, I am committed to finding long-term solutions for our residents.
“Since taking office I have remained focused on creating a healthy economy, bringing jobs back to our state and working to increase public safety in our local communities. These will remain my top priorities and I look forward to finding common sense solutions to make Michigan a great place to live and work for decades to come.”
