Proud to stand with EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to accept $1 million in additional federal brownfield dollars to apply to environmental clean up and redevelopment in Lansing. These funds are crucial to redevelopment and job creation in cities like Lansing and manufacturing states like Michigan. Thank you, President Obama.

Memorial Day should remind us to take a moment or two today to consider the brave men and women who paid the ultimate price to protect our freedoms and way of life. May their families feel the love and support of a grateful nation.
GM jobs coming to Michigan and other states!!! Remember when the right wingers said we should let the “free market” work and kill off GM and Chrysler? I was proud to stand up for domestic manufacturing then and now. Great nations must produce greatly, not just consume.
Proud to host Patriot Flag here in Lansing… A reminder of the resolve and solidarity of the American people after the 9-11 attack. America is unbowed and unbeaten, still a beacon of hope around the world. Let’s work together to make the promise of America – land of opportunity – true today.
Anyone have an idea on how we can get this so-called pastor to crawl back under the rock from whence he came? Can’t decide if we’re better off ignoring him or taking time to condemn him. Guys like this seem thrive on attention…positive or negative.
Look who may take over for Glenn Beck…my old sparring partner, Eric Bolling. Man, did I get some email after this — and not all of it negative. I tell you my friends, we’ve got to spread the progressive word wherever and whenever we can!

Very proud of both our daughters…Kelly, a recent U of M graduate, is considering a run for the legislature. Virginia, a CMU sophomore, was recently elected president of CMU Democrats. Especially pleased that they are engaged in progressive politics, committed to social justice.
I cannot ignore this decision by the Governor & the Republican majority to rob Michigan residents unemployment benefits
I want to be fair and give the guy a chance, but I cannot ignore this mean-spirited and downright cruel decision by the Governor and the Republican majority to rob Michigan residents of much-needed unemployment benefits in this difficult economy. Don’t they know how many people are suffering and barely holding on? Incredible….
Once again, I try to educate FOX anchor on the definition of “fair and balanced.” Where would we be now without the tremendous, progressive record of the labor movement? Can working people look to Wall Street for a fair shake? Ha!
Proud to stand with activists from all over Michigan in support of labor rights for WI workers and all Americans. Thanks to Move On.Org for sponsoring the rally to Save the American Dream. We’ve got our work cut out for us. MI and America MUST be a place of opportunity for all – not just the folks at the top.
Now is no time for a tea party. Hope you are ready to stand and fight for the American Dream.
