The hot seats for up for grabs in the State of Michigan are the gubernatorial seat currently held by Gov. Rick Snyder and the U.S. senate seat held by beloved long time senator and public servant Carl Levin. Levin was sworn in on Jan. 3 1979. He is completing his sixth term in office. A senator’s term is six years. Levin is eligible to run for office again, but he’s elected not to. Popular opinion is that Levin has served Michigan citizens well having helped to author and pass key civil rights and quality of life bills in the U.S. Congress.
Gov. Snyder, who is ending his second four-year term is not eligible to run for the office of governor again. primary responsibility has been to manage the state’s business. Snyder who has been the key speaker at the Michigan Chronicle’s Pancakes and Politics speaker series has spoken candidly on such controversial issues as Detroit’s bankruptcy and his appointment of the emergency manager, the state’s economic recovery and his four-point plan for the state’s reinvention.
With so much at stake and the future of our state and city on the table, it’s in the best interest of Michigan citizen’s to get involved and cast your vote to decide the Senate and Gubernatorial races.
