Cox Statement On Governor Whitmer's Shutdown Orders

LANSING, Mich., November 15, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding the Whitmer administration’s COVID-19 shutdown announcement.


“Yet again Governor Whitmer continues to show her contempt for the people’s elected representatives. Instead of working with our elected representatives at the state and local level, she is trying a one-size-fits-all approach that will only exacerbate the issues our state and its economy are facing. Small businesses, particularly restaurants, cannot sustain themselves through another lock-down, and these new orders will certainly spell doom for the livelihood of many. I call on Governor Whitmer to reconsider her course of action and meet with our legislators to come up with a solution that works for all Michiganders.”
