Governor Whitmer’s Focus on Investments is Encouraging for Michigan’s Communities

The following statement about Governor Whitmer’s 2022 State of the State Address can be attributed to Michigan Municipal League Board President Barb Ziarko, councilmember for the City of Sterling Heights.

“The Michigan Municipal League is greatly encouraged by tonight’s State of the State speech by Governor Whitmer. The Governor talked about investment and getting our state’s economy back on track. Michigan’s communities appreciate the investment and work that’s been done by the administration and legislature in the past year. The state is now faced with a historic opportunity to make investments that will have a lasting impact on our residents, businesses, and communities and for the first time in modern memory has the financial wherewithal to create meaningful change. We look forward to working with the Governor and legislative leaders in the upcoming year as they move forward on making critical investments to assist our communities in attracting and retaining a talented workforce and building community wealth that is equitable for all.”
