I have to admit, that I have rarely veered to the Republican side of the ticket over the last several years, but I will say with certainty that I plan to vote for Rick Snyder if he decides to run again. During his time in office I have observed that Mr. Snyder very rarely (if ever), bends to the most popular, or the politically correct decisions. It seems to me, that he is much more likely than anyone I have ever seen in public office, to do the right thing for the state, regardless of how unpopular of a decision it will be. I cannot say enough about how much integrity this shows. I'm sure that all of the overpriced UAW members will have plenty to say to rebut my honest observation on this great public servant. Of course I realize that they are only trying to protect their gravy train, and they do not care if they are making the U.S. and more so, Michigan an undesirable venue in which to conduct any sort of business.
