I’m a mom, former legislator, prosecutor, and Governor. I fight for the things that matter to people, and I put them first.
Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II
Garlin has dedicated his career to fixing problems for hardworking families. He uses his experience as an organizer and an innovator to get things done for Michiganders across the state. As Lieutenant Governor, Garlin immediately rolled up his sleeves and got to work bringing our state government into the 21st century.
GOVERNOR WHITMER’S PRIORITIES
Governor Whitmer is focused on getting things done that will make a difference in people’s lives right now. While she is staying focused on saving lives and helping our economy recover quickly from the pandemic, the governor also made the largest investment in K-12 education in state history – without raising taxes – and is fixing hundreds of roads and bridges across the state.
ROADS & BRIDGES
Governor Whitmer is fulfilling her signature promise to fix the damn roads, with Rebuilding Michigan - $3.5 billion in bonds for roads and bridges to tangibly improve people’s daily drives.
Governor Whitmer’s administration has led on new rules limiting PFAS chemicals in our water systems, a historic $500 million investment in water infrastructure, and the Governor’s actions to revoke the easement agreement for the Line 5 Pipeline and moving to shut down Line 5.
HEALTH & THE PANDEMIC
Governor Whitmer’s actions saved lives in the COVID-19 pandemic, where she focused on doing the right things: acting quickly, following the science, and listening to the experts. She successfully lobbied the federal government for additional personnel and resources to ramp up vaccinations, got shots in arms quickly, and allocated billions in federal dollars to distribute vaccines faster and give frontline workers a much-needed raise. The ‘MI Vacc to Normal’ outlines four vaccination-based milestones to get the state back to normal.
ECONOMY & JOBS
Small businesses are the lifeblood of communities, and Gov. Whitmer is committed to getting the support they need to stay afloat to help rebuild our economy. Michigan has created over 11,000 new auto jobs under Gov. Whitmer, including the first new plant in Detroit in over 30 years.
Gov. Whitmer’s bipartisan budget made the largest investment in K-12 education in state history – without raising taxes. Under Gov. Whitmer’s leadership, Michigan is offering free community college and job training to adults over age 25 and our essential workers – making college accessible to those who can’t afford it.
