LANSING, Mich., November 5, 2019 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist’s letter to state legislators asking them to trust Governor Whitmer regarding her possible use of State Administrative Board transfers in 2020 budget negotiations.
“There are 625 million reasons why the people of Michigan shouldn’t trust Governor Whitmer to use her State Administrative Board transfers responsibly. The fact that she’s trying to solve this self-made crisis by getting her hands on the $947 million she vetoed is alarming. Gretchen Whitmer has shown that she couldn’t run a Lemonade stand let alone the State of Michigan. I’m sure her lack of credibility was what led to this letter being sent from Lt. Governor Gilchrist instead of the Governor herself.”
