Michigan Democratic Chair Mark Brewer needs to stop acting like a thug and start making a case for his party's vision for this very stressed state. Why do I say this?
He goes to the headquarters of Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Dick Devos and deliberately provokes a confrontation on private property. It's a great way to get play in the media, but does nothing to show me what the Democrats stand for on the important issues of the day.
I would like to see a real debate in Michigan on the issues and how the candidates identify and address them. So far, Mark Brewer acts more like a political hood from Belarus, rather than Michigan. Our citizens, regardless of party, deserve better.
My hope is that someday soon Michigan will be perceived as an opportunity state. I want my adult kids who live in other states to be able to realize opportunity and not the insecurity that exists now.
