Howell, MI – Tonight, Meghan Reckling, Chair of the Livingston County Republican Party issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s State of the State address:
"Tonight, the Governor wanted us to pay attention to what she was saying, and I think all of Michigan heard her loud and clear. Besides her refusal to give credit to Republicans for the long list of legislative accomplishments she highlighted, or the President for our strong economy which she also touted - she instead chose to shame the legislature for their refusal to grant her extreme gas tax hike or follow her lead in slashing funding to veterans, students, seniors, local law enforcement, and Michiganders in need.
Governor Whitmer ended her address by preaching the virtues of impatience and her intentions to double-down on her go-it-alone approach from last year, instead promising to drive up debt against the will of Michigan's hard-working taxpayers."
