G4G Talking Points for 09-07
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 (61 Days until Victory 2006)

Jobs Today, Jobs Tomorrow: Governor Granholm announced 61 job creation projects that will receive money from her 21st Century Jobs Fund. The funding will help diversify Michigans economy by spurring growth and new jobs in emerging industries like life sciences, alternative energy and homeland security.

Lansing State Journal Letter: State not for sale
Dick DeVos and his Rove/DeLay collaborative bought the Republican primary using these same tactics, and are now attempting to buy the governorship. To them, the truth is just something to be molded and manipulated so they can win. Join me in voting for Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Tell the DeVos crowd that Michigan is not for sale.
