Michigan is still feeling the pain of policies that were enacted under former Gov. Jennifer Granholm, many of which were supported by former State Rep. Gary McDowell.
The last several years, many new graduates have been forced to leave the state in order to find jobs elsewhere. This exodus of our youth is a direct result of the McDowell- Granholm policies like the Michigan Business Tax, that drove the unemployment rate to above 14 percent and pushed businesses out of state.
Due to Gary McDowell's track record of supporting job-killing tax hikes, I will be supporting Dr. Dan Benishek in his race for the United States House of Representatives. Dr. Benishek has a record of supporting pro-growth economic policies and obviously understands what Northern Michigan needs to get its economy back on track so that our children can find well-paying jobs in Michigan.
So please vote for Dr. Benishek on Nov. 6. 2012.
