Letter to the Editor

I am deeply disappointed by the GM plant closures announcement today and the devastating impact it will have on our workers, their families and our communities.

Michigan has the best autoworkers in the world and I know there’s no job that they can’t handle. As GM considers future investments and products, it is critical that those investments be made in Michigan — not overseas.

And most importantly it is critical to find opportunities for the workers who’ve lost their jobs because of today’s announcement. I will continue to stand with Michigan’s autoworkers and our communities no matter what.

How about the taxes that saved GM in the first place? Wonder how much of a pay cut the CEO will take? Ha, that's funny!
