“Michigan’s turnaround in the last eight years has been remarkable. We are confident that these candidates for the Legislature will be key allies for our next governor to continue Michigan’s growth,” said Brad Williams, vice president of Government Relations for the Detroit Regional Chamber.

The Chamber PAC Board of Directors regularly meets to identify and support pro-business candidates and policies that support the Chamber’s public policy priorities. After careful consideration, the Board made the endorsements based on responses to a Chamber PAC survey, input from PAC members and individual interactions.
