Governor Rick Snyder Visits Rogers City

Here is a story from alpenanow.com about the Governor's recent visit to Rogers City.  During the visit the Governor agreed to assist Rogers City and to help to solve the high unemployment problem that has plagued Presque Isle County for years.  Speaking in a non-partisan manner, I appreciate the Governor's approach to "relentless positive action" to help solve the problems in Michigan.  I believe in the same approach for our local city government.  I know our Mayor and City Council feel the same way too.  We want to make this community the best it can be.

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder began his day in Rogers City Monday, talking with business and community leaders about issues important to his “Reinvent Michigan” campaign.
Snyder also answered questions from the audience on a wide range of topics including education, the possibility of another bridge to Canada, invasive species in the Great Lakes and Presque Isle County’s number one business – agriculture.
Snyder told True North Radio he believes a new bridge to Canada should be built to expand trade, the highly successful “Pure Michigan” advertising campaign will continue and the roll of his administration should be as problem solvers.
“We are in the customer service business and we have to keep that going”, said Snyder. He went on to say he would like to see the private sector more involved in training people for skilled trade positions.
The Governor’s Sunrise Side swing included an afternoon stop in Alpena for a town hall style meeting at Alpena Community College where he spoke more about his “Reinvent Michigan” campaign.
