A Nerd for Governor?

9 Feb

Michigan. needs. a. new. governor. NOW!  This year republicans have a great shot at taking back the governor’s mansion.  We have several choices including, state Attorney General Mike Cox, State Representative Pete Hoekstra, and Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard.  What do those three candidates have in common?  They’re all politicians.  But on superbowl Sunday Michiganders were introduced to another GOP candidate for governor.  His name, Rick Snyder.  Rick Synder is not a politician.  He’s… well, in his words, he’s a nerd.  Rick aired this ad during the superbowl:

I’ve read Rick’s 10 point plan for Michigan  and as far as I can tell, this guy knows what he’s talking about.  Personally, I love the idea of a businessman sitting in the governors mansion.  I’m growing a bit weary of career politicians.  I think Mr. Snyder would be a fresh face in the governors mansion.  I find it pathetic that most politicians have never punched a time card or know what it’s like to run a business.  A businessman knows how to compete in a competitive market and it appears Rick knows how to win.  And Michigan could use that.  Last time I checked Michigan has the highest unemployment rate and who better to fix that than a businessman?  I hope Snyder’s ad has brought him to the front of the Michigan voters mind.  He’s been lagging behind his opponents but the ad is sure to help.

    I am a member of the Carpenter’s union and can’t believe that the building trades unions would back Andy Dillon. He has refused to bring a E-verify bill up for a vote. I would like to know how you stand on that bill and immigration reform. The unions tend to endorse democrats but a large part of their membership is smarter than that and vote as independents . we are looking for someone that will help the shrinking middle class Andy Dillon is not that person are you?
