Below is a statement from Joseph G. Lehman, president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy.
The personal safety and security of Gov. Whitmer and her family is paramount. We condemn any effort to threaten or harm anyone, regardless of their background, stature, or politics. While the governor and the Mackinac Center have both agreed and disagreed from time to time, we believe it is the duty of all Michiganders – and all Americans – to respect our officeholders and our peaceful political process. This is an essential, fundamental value of our free society.
The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonprofit research and educational institute that advances the principles of free markets and limited government. Through our research and education programs, we challenge government overreach and advocate for a free-market approach to public policy that frees people to realize their potential and dreams.
Please consider contributing to our work to advance a freer and more prosperous state.
