Dear Friends, Welcome to the April 1, 2021 edition of Three Things Thursday! Spring in Michigan is always an adventure: one day . . .
Michigan ranks 49th out of 50 states in terms of transparency and good governance.
A recent study from George Washington University showed that over 90% of those polled (including all political parties) supported efforts by state governments to initiate stronger standards for accountability and government transparency.
In spite of a clear consensus for reforms, few if any have moved forward in recent years. Adding insult to injury, we have severely outdated election infrastructure.
Each year, there are enormous threats to the health of Michigan’s democratic process, a process fundamental to achieving our mission.
Passing strong laws to protect our environment depends upon open and fair elections so that we can help elect pro-conservation decision-makers to office.
Michigan, should be pushing forward with smart, pragmatic policies that enrich our democratic process and ensure better outcomes for the public. It just takes political will to get the job done.
That’s where Michigan LCV comes in and that’s where YOU come in.
