LANSING, Mich., December 8, 2020 – On the same day Governor Whitmer extended her shutdowns which have crippled small businesses and caused families across Michigan to cancel holiday celebrations, it was announced that Whitmer has taken on a new job - planning Joe Biden’s inaugural celebration.
According to an announcement from Joe Biden’s team, Governor Whitmer will serve as an advisor to help plan the upcoming inauguration. Meanwhile, restaurants and businesses throughout the state remain shuttered during their busiest time of the year, with no end in sight.
“Governor Whitmer is showing yet again that she is prioritizing partisan politics over the people of Michigan. Instead of planning a party, she should be working with the State Legislature to come up with a plan that protects Michiganders without destroying their lives.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “I call on Governor Whitmer to resign from this party planning position and devote herself to the job she was elected to do. If that is too much to ask, ‘Big Gretch’ should find a new job.”
