Maybe that's his plan, not to deal with any of the above groups and run it by the numbers................like a business. I don't know, sounded good at the time though

I'm voting for Snyder. The rest come off as same old shit different year politicians and crooks. I'm willing to try the political outsider for 4 years. It cannot be ANY worse than 8 years under Grandmole.

Cox just didn't sit well with me at the Tax Day Tea Party rally in Lansing. He was trying just a little too hard to say what that crowd wanted to hear. To me he was just sucking up knowing that it was a huge pool of independent voters.

Ok, I emailed Hoekstra when this thread appeared, and he called me. I'm not only surprised, but I'm impressed. He only had two minutes, but it was pretty cool. He didn't even use *67 I was going to ask him about his views on the michigan DNR, and trail closures, but we didn't get that far

I'm guessing the best way to rig your toilet to leak so you can get your house refurbished for free.

Hoekstra is a horrible choice, he has been a Congressman over here on the west side and has done nothing but line his own pockets. He shows up to ribbon cuttings that created jobs, that he voted against. Hoekstra is the problem in Washington, we don't need him or his politics anymore! He only cares about staying in office to receive that nice paycheck, I would love to see him work a honest 40 hour factory job.

Another West Sider against Hoekstra and his bible thumping ideals. I have dealt with enough true dutch Hollanders to know that I do NOT want him as a governor. Mike Cox gets my vote.
