The Center for Michigan


Gov. Snyder: ‘I want to know what the customers of Michigan want’

February 24, 2014 | Bridge Staff

Today the Center for Michigan launches new online community conversations. We seek to make citizenship more convenient than ever – and produce a citizens’ agenda for the 2014 statewide elections. Governor Rick Snyder, who hosted one of our first in- person Community Conversations seven years ago, welcomes participants in this video introduction to the online conversation, which anybody can complete about 30 minutes.

Democratic candidate for governor Mark Schauer endorses the Center’s online conversations in his own video, and says these citizen views will be valuable to his efforts to run for governor on a platform of building an economy for the middle class. Watch Schauer’s video and participate in the online conversation introduced by him here.
