Just Say NO to Dick and YES to Jen - Reason #17

Michigan is an incredible state with abundant natural beauty, particularly our Great Lakes.
Our Great Lakes are a priceless asset.
To destroy our Great Lakes through drilling and pollution would be irresponsible and catastrophic.

Tricky Dick says "As governor, I will protect MichiganĂ‚’s environment from pollution and abuse."(Michigan Turnaround Plan pg 31)

But if there's one thing that Michigan voters have learned...
Amway Guy says one thing, and his money does another.

Just Say NO to Dick because...

17. Dick DeVos supports drilling of the Great Lakes.

Dick DeVos contributed over $100,000 to the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, an extreme right wing think tank. The Mackinac Center opposes water restrictions aimed at protecting ground water and supports drilling in the Great Lakes, it once said, the "“threat of oil spills off the Great Lakes is a phantom menace." (Detroit Free Press, January 21, 2004; Oil and Gas Journal, September 26, 2005)

Just Say YES to Jen because...
17. Governor Granholm has worked hard to protect our Great Lakes from drilling and other harmful measures.
Governor Granholm signed legislation that for the first time protects Michigan waters from large-scale diversions and withdrawals. The landmark legislation fulfills a commitment Michigan made more than 20 years ago to join with other states and Canada to protect and preserve the waters of the Great Lakes Basin. (Michigan Water Legacy Act of 2006)
