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 a barrage of attacks from radical militia groups, the Republican-led Michigan Legislature, and former President Trump, she continues to govern with a steely resolve and dedication to delivering for the people of Michigan.
Her administration has notched major policy victories, creating 11,000 new auto jobs while working to diversify the economy, passing balanced, bipartisan budgets, making the largest investment in K-12 education in state history without raising taxes, delivering critical COVID relief, and creating two successful workforce education programs: Michigan Reconnect and Futures for Frontliners. She’s also fulfilling her signature promise to fix the damn roads, with $3.5 billion in bonds for roads and bridges to tangibly improve people’s daily drives and water infrastructure improvements that will create 7,500 jobs.
