Snyder Defends ‘Tough’ Decisions, Challenges Of Change

DETROIT (WWJ) – Governor Snyder is talking about the slings and arrows that come with change. Snyder moved between audiences that included honorees of the Free Press Green Leaders awards ceremony and the Federal Bar Association.

In speaking to a crowd in downtown Detroit during the Green Leaders awards ceremony, the Governor says he respects those leaders of green initiatives who oversee hard changes.

WWJ Newsradio 950’s Florence Walton caught up to the governor in to ask about the Rev. Jesse Jackson has been outspoken in his opposition to the new emergency financial manager law.

“Look at Federal bankruptcy law;  That’s been there for how many decades? And it goes further and has more powers than anything involved with the emergency financial manager legislation and I don’t see people standing up all over saying let’s repeal the Federal bankruptcy law,” notes Snyder.

Then the Governor moved to an audience that included Federal judges and prosecutors where he stressed the need for shared sacrifice and compromise.

“I believe we should also be … looking at ways in which the circuit court can work better with the district court and the probate court, to the degree that they can help one another and support one another in listening to a case, or figuring out how they can help one another or do the best things possible,” says Snyder.

Snyder acknowledged the opposition to many of his proposals but he also encouraged people who agree with him to become just as vocal as his opponents.

    RECALL Snyder.

  • Mike

    Everything fanatical right wing spoilers say is prefaced by the word ‘look’. You look! We already looked! You’ve commandeered the literary expertise of the liberal class to crank out your propaganda in order to bring some mock- legitimacy to your heresy but you’re only angering the brightest and best that see through it like cellophane. You will reap what you’re sowing in the coming elections once again when you start the pendulum swinging yet, too far in the other direction, all in a religious like frenzy to feed the sacred capitalist pig.

  • Mike

    Capitalism unfettered has no conscience save that of a pig farmer who cares only that his pigs are in his possession at the time of slaughter. That is how Capitalists look at people, their own people, their fellow Americans. Sad but, true.

  • Mike

    Slaughter doesn’t phase them for they always leave enough people intact to breed the next batch.

  • Mike

    They feed them the ‘American Dream’. Not much substance but, it’s enough to get them to market.
