Calley Running for Governor

Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley announced today that he is joining the 2018 GOP race for governor.

Calley, a part-time state legislature supporter, stated the following on his Facebook page:  “I am proud to have been an integral part of Michigan’s extraordinary rise from the recession that plagued our state during the ‘Lost Decade.’ We set out to make Michigan the comeback state and that’s exactly what we did.

I am running for Governor to build on this strong foundation and make Michigan the most prosperous state in the nation.”


Mr. Calley’s Clean Michigan Government Initiative

Lt. Gov. Brian Calley

The Michigan lt. gov has announced that he is spearheading a ballot question committee to dramatically change the political culture of Lansing: “Brian Calley’s Clean MI Government initiative is a proposed amendment to the state constitution to switch to a part time legislature, slash legislators’ pay, and cut legislator benefits and pensions.”

Money quote: “It is time to amend the Michigan state constitution to switch from a full-time to a part-time state legislature. This will save tax dollars by cutting legislators’ pay and give them more time to live and work back home under the laws they pass.”

Here’s more from today’s press conference, held at Mackinac Island. Michigan, by the way, is only one of nine states with a full-time legislature.
