LANSING (WWJ) – In Lansing this week, a pow wow of sorts with the Governor and Republicans.

WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick reports that while 3000 people demonstrated on the Capital lawn – quietly inside the Governor’s office,  eleven Republicans went in to have lunch. The agenda: The Snyder Agenda.

“There wasn’t any attempt to strong-arm anybody, it was just an open discussion about some of the issues we are facing. Everybody was able to air out different approaches to different topics. It was kind of a warm-up session, if you will,” says Canton (R) State Senator, Patrick Colbeck.

While minds or opinions may not have been changed, many echoed the sentiment that it was good to get together to talk, and eat.
