It is with great enthusiasm and commitment that I announce I will seek to return to the University of Michigan Board of Regents on the 2014 ballot. This begins today, as I ask for your support to fill one of the two nominations our great party will select at next summer’s GOP Convention. I can and will return a conservative voice to the U of M Board!
2014 offers an incredible opportunity to continue moving Michigan forward and I am ready to dedicate the countless hours and finances to make a true difference. While our state has enjoyed much success since 2010, highlighted by passage of Right to Work, elimination of the MBT and decreased unemployment…there still remains much to accomplish.
Education has always been my passion, as has my continued dedication to my alma mater, the University of Michigan. I’m very proud of my record on the board from 1994-2002 and promise to hold strong my conservative principles if elected to serve again. My record is solidly Pro-Life, one that rejects the notion of special privileges for same sex domestic partnerships, and one that supports not only the Second Amendment, but also the entire Michigan and United States Constitutions. I do not support the new Common Core proposals and I will continue to fight for an admission policy which supports our deserving Michigan high school students first, and not those students here illegally or from out of state or overseas. In addition, I will remain steadfast that admission to the University must be based on academic merit and not the color of one’s skin! Finally, with over $8 billion in the University of Michigan’s endowment fund, and a new capital campaign underway to raise billions more, I will refuse to promote further tax burdens on the great citizens of Michigan.
These are the values I fought for as a Regent, and these are the same values I will again champion as we work to bring a conservative majority to the University of Michigan Board of Regents.
Your support, encouragement and endorsement are critical to my success. I hope you’ll join my team today by clicking here.
God Bless and Go Blue!
