Since they were elected in 2018, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel, and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson have been the strong, steady leaders our state needs. They’ve consistently worked to protect public health throughout the COVID pandemic and gone to bat for Michiganders and our rights.
Despite near-constant efforts by the legislature to curb her use of emergency executive powers to keep the pandemic under control, Gov. Whitmer has pursued science-based policies that aim to slow the spread and keep our communities safe. Even in the face of violent threats, she has continued to make tough but necessary decisions about how best to minimize illnesses and deaths. She has also been a stalwart advocate for improving our roads and bridges, funding our schools, and cleaning up our water. Call Gov. Whitmer’s office at 517-335-7858 and thank her for her hard work for the people of Michigan.
As Michigan’s attorney general, Dana Nessel has been a fighter for the people of Michigan and our rights. When the Trump administration sought to attack our most vulnerable communities, AG Nessel fought back on behalf of our state. When disinformation about our election system ran rampant, she worked to hold the people responsible accountable and restore trust in our democracy. She has also been a tireless advocate for sexual assault survivors and taken a stand against the disturbing pattern of abuse in the Catholic Church. Call AG Nessel’s office at 517-335-7644 and thank her for fighting for our rights.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has helped ensure our elections are as safe, secure, and accurate as possible—a fact proven by audits across the state. Looking forward, SOS Jocelyn Benson is pushing for increased funding for local clerks to keep things running smoothly. Thanks to her work, Michigan is also poised to make voting even more accessible for eligible voters by making Election Day an official holiday. Call SOS Benson’s office at 888-767-6424 and thank her for her work to preserve and expand our democracy.
