Cox Statement On Whitmer Shutdown Extension

LANSING, Mich., December 18, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding Governor Whitmer’s Administration extending her shutdown policy.

“I am happy to see that Governor Whitmer has decided to let our kids go back to school after coming under pressure from the Michigan Republican Party and others. However, I am disappointed that Governor Whitmer continues to ignore the pleas of citizens across Michigan who are suffering personally and financially due to her shutdown policies. I condemn Governor Whitmer’s decision to keep many small businesses closed, and hope she reverses this course of action so that Michigan families can have financial stability this holiday season.”
