An Evening With the Mackinac Center Featuring Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels With Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder

Monday, November 14, 2011

Join the Mackinac Center for an evening of world-class dining, inspirational speakers and a vision for Michigan’s future! 

You won’t want to miss Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (author of Keeping the Republic: Saving America by Trusting Americans) as our keynote speaker! 

Mitch Daniels has an impressive legacy both in the private and public arenas. He was CEO of the Hudson Institute, a public policy think tank in Indiana, and President of Eli Lilly and Company’s North American Pharmaceutical Operations. He served as a senior advisor to President Ronald Reagan and director of the Office of Management and Budget under President George W. Bush.

When he was elected governor in 2004, Daniels inherited a state government that was hundreds of millions of dollars in debt. Daniels not only balanced the budget, he also championed and signed the biggest tax relief measure in state history. According to the Washington Times, “Indiana’s public-sector payroll is the smallest per capita in the nation.” In 2008, Governing magazine named him “Public Official of the Year.”

Praise for Gov. Daniels 

• Washington Post columnist David Broder: “His style is to be down-home,
 but his record of accomplishment is dazzling.”

• Syndicated Columnist George F. Will: “From education to infrastructure, his Indiana accomplishments have given him something rare in contemporary politics: the charisma of competence.”

• New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: “He’s one of the brightest governors in America.”

Join us, along with Governor Rick Snyder and WJR radio’s Frank Beckmann (the evening’s emcee), as we welcome Governor Mitch Daniels to Michigan. We will also honor some Michiganders who stood up against overwhelming odds to fight for freedom.
