    Opinion.ELECTION 2010: Newspaper endorses Snyder for governor
    Published: Sunday, October 24, 2010

    Starting with today’s editions, The News-Herald Newspapers begins endorsing political candidates for the Nov. 2 general election. The endorsements decisions were made by editors of Heritage Newspapers based on background material on the candidates, e-mail endorsement forms and some editorial board interviews.

    Whether you agree or disagree with our selections, please vote on Election Day, Nov. 2. It will make us all stronger.

    We endorse a vote for Republican Rick Snyder for governor. In a year that screams out for change, Snyder offers the most attractive possibility for that.

    A venture capitalist and former Gateway computers’ CEO, Snyder fought his way through a crowded GOP primary by essentially becoming the ultimate political outsider. He shunned most debates, avoided name-calling and concentrated on delivering his message to “Reinvent Michigan” by running a grass-roots campaign of small community forums.

    Snyder is a proven jobs creator. He’d like to replace the hated Michigan Business Tax with a flat 6 percent corporate tax, change the way the state budgets to a two-year cycle and create mentoring programs that would avoid the state’s “brain drain” of young people leaving Michigan.

    All of that said, we do have certain caveats with Snyder’s candidacy. He needs to surround himself with experienced, Lansing-savvy political leaders who can navigate the Capitol. Lansing is not a corporation; it is a political hotbed that should be governed by learned debate and compromise. Too often, it is not.

    Jennifer Granholm, despite serving as attorney general, was essentially a legislative novice when she took the governor’s role eight years ago, and the results of her two terms weren’t attractive.

    Snyder needs to hit the ground running if he wants to get things done, and one way to do so is to surround his post with the legislative experience that he lacks.

    He also needs to be a more open communicator with the public. We understand that he doesn’t want to play the old political games. We also understand that he doesn’t have the public persona of his Democratic opponent, Virg Bernero.

    Nevertheless, if he is to lead Michigan, he has to be out front. We believe there should have been more debates with his opponent, and a more open exchange of ideas. Communication and charisma can be important tools. His public persona can no longer be heavily controlled by his campaign staff. He’s not going to lead the state from behind a boardroom table.

    Lastly, we challenge Snyder to stay his own course. Michigan doesn’t need the GOP’s far right political influence — it needs an even-handed leader, just as it needs jobs, better budgeting and less special interest governance.

    Still, it’s time for change in Michigan and Snyder offers hope. Granholm is not the reason Michigan finds itself in an economic abyss. What has befallen the state would have brought more experienced political leaders to their knees. However, while she is not the reason for all that is bad, she plainly did not do enough to right the ship — nor did she have the cooperation of the state Legislature.

    That’s where Snyder comes in. Should he become our next governor, plenty of difficult days still lie ahead. He’s running as a candidate who wants to reinvent Michigan. We say, let the reinvention begin. Vote for Rick Snyder on Nov. 2.
