“The State of the State address marks the beginning of a new year, and with that comes a new opportunity for us all to work together to address the issues facing our communities. The underfunding of the education system, Michigan’s failing infrastructure and the state’s broken criminal justice system are keeping the people of this state from an opportunity for success. It is up to us to take action now, right the wrongs of the past, and ensure everyone in this state has the chance to build the life that works for them.”
