Governor Whitmer has been tested.
Amidst historic circumstances, the Governor has led with grit and grace, tackling Michigan’s longstanding infrastructure, healthcare, and education challenges while taking decisive action to save lives and rebuild the state’s economy. Despite the unprecedented challenges of her first term, she continues to govern with a steely resolve and dedication to delivering for the people of Michigan.
Her administration has delivered results for Michiganders by, creating over 20,000 new auto jobs while working across the aisle to ensure Michigan has the resources to compete for new business, passing balanced, bipartisan budgets, making the largest investment in K-12 education in state history and closing the school funding gap without raising taxes, and provided hundreds of millions in relief funds to Michigan’s small businesses and restaurants.
She has created two successful workforce education programs to ensure Michigan’s businesses can fill jobs with skilled workers: Michigan Reconnect and Futures for Frontliners. She’s cut costs for hardworking families by securing $400 refund auto insurance refund checks for every Michigan driver, repealing the tampon tax, and expanding low or no-cost childcare to 105,000 additional families. She’s also fulfilling her signature promise to fix the damn roads, with $3.5 billion in bonds for roads and funding to repair 100 bridges to tangibly improve people’s daily drives and improving the state’s water infrastructure.
Governor Whitmer is tough.
She’s tackling the big challenges Michigan faces with bold solutions and decisive leadership. She will continue working to ensure that every Michigander has a great public education and a path to a good-paying job, every community has clean, safe drinking water, and everyone can drive to work or drop their kids at school safely, without blowing a tire or cracking a windshield. She knows that our best days are ahead of us and will never stop fighting for Michigan’s families.
