Talking points: Granholm accomplishments
Here are some talking points to use when you talk to people about the Gov. These were part of an email I received today. Also is a link to the website, and a link for donations if you can manage.

Led the successful fight to raise the minimum wage for the first time in a decade after years of Republican opposition.

Created the 21st Century Jobs Fund to encourage technology companies to invest in Michigans economy convinced companies like Google and United Solar Ovonics to bring jobs to Michigan.

Vigorously defended affirmative action and unequivocally opposed the anti-affirmative action ballot initiative.

Created the Jobs Today program, which is putting thousands of Michigan citizens to work right now by accelerating much needed construction projects.

Signed legislation to protect our Great Lakes from dumping toxins, and committed to reducing mercury emissions 90% by 2015 to protect our water and our citizens from this harmful pollutant.

Signed targeted tax cuts to keep manufacturing jobs in Michigan companies like Hemlock Semiconductor and American Axle are bringing jobs to Michigan and keeping them here.

Invested in public education at record levels and created rigorous new curriculum standards to ensure that every student can succeed in the 21st century economy.

Extended affordable prescription drug coverage and health coverage to 292,000 Michigan citizens, and proposed the MI First Health Care Plan, which will provide access to affordable health insurance for 500,000 uninsured people in our state.

This is a reminder that at the end of this week, my campaign team will be closing the books on our first public campaign finance report. I hope that you will make a donation your contribution will help us gain momentum for the final months of the campaign and it will fund critical efforts that ensure that everyone gets out to vote and that every vote is counted. I am depending on your help and support in this election please click here to make a donation before the deadline:

1. Just donated from your link. Good idea to keep these talking points
in the forefront, especially since DeVos has had a HUGE amount of publicity from all his TV ads the past several weeks.
