Quotes

"The people as a whole are afraid of white officers history dictates to us how we have been treated" said Aioni Gilcreast, PAC Chair of the NAACP Flint Branch
"Never seen a storm like this. Not that much hail. A lot of pea-sized hail before, but never this big" he said
"This is an economy that works for some but isn't working for most Michiganders, that's why we've laid out very clear 10 point jobs plan to create a Michigan that works for everyone, not just the wealthy" Schauer said
"Last year in the budget we were given an additional $4 million specifically for international efforts. What we have done with that is really increased our presence in the UK and Germany, so in addition to this really great group presence, we've been able to put a little Michigan specific behind that" Grinelle said
