There are so many issues to be addressed in our state. As a citizen of Michigan, one of the issues I really care about is the return to good government in Michigan. A great start is the full and total disclosures of all campaign contributions and contributions for political advertising. I hope this can start with your campaign and that of your opponent.

Right on Cris! Dark money in politics grows each election cycle and with each dollar the voices of the people are weakened. Join the fight for free and fair elections:

Why do you tell lies about Governor Snyder giving tax breaks to companies moving jobs overseas in your ad. Is it that you can't come up with a good idea on your own? He didn't raise taxes on retirees pensions either...lies...lies...lies

No he didn't RAISE taxes on pensions, he just TAXED my teacher pension that was promised to me UNTAXED! I WORKED 32 years for that little bit of money to live on the rest of my life, and I stayed in Michigan.

Rick, How far do you have your head buried in the sand? In a most divisive fashion the Michigan, Republican dominated legislature, brought forth a bill to tax retiree pensions - not all pensions, but, most. Gov. Snyder signed the bill into law. He must take responsibility for this... he had another choice, he could have vetoed the bill. To say it did not happen, is like saying the earth is flat.
