In the wake of Mark Sleep’s list of 23 reasons not to vote for Rick Snyder, we came up with a list of why you need to get out to the polls November 4 and vote for our next governor, Mark Schauer. When Mark was in government in Lansing and Washington, he voted on many historic pieces of legislation that have improved the lives of Michiganians and Americans. We need that in Michigan right now, after four years of cronyism, secret funds, scandal after scandal and an out-of-touch CEO who thinks he doesn’t have to answer for any of it. It’s time to take our state back.
Voted in favor of the Affordable Care Act.
Supports fair pay for women.
Voted to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
Supports a woman’s right to choose her own reproductive health care.
Stood shoulder to shoulder with the people in Lansing on December 11, 2012, protesting right to work for less
No more emergency managers.
Picked the best running mate.
Proposed raising the minimum wage in Michigan in 2013.
Polled in spring 2013 as the one who could beat Snyder and no one knew who he was.
His non profit organization helped people find jobs.
Fully supports public education and education professionals
Knows everyone in Michigan needs relief from higher taxes and fewer jobs right now without promises of, “you may not be feeling it yet, but you will soon.”
Visited every county in Michigan to meet the citizens of this state.
Thinks the best two words in the world are “Grandpa Schauer.”
