Gov. Rick Snyder came to office talking about reinventing Michigan and change has become his mantra. Which is why there will be a standing room only crowd to listen to the state’s 48th governor when he takes to the Michigan Chronicle’s Pancakes and Politics stage on Monday, April 7 at the Detroit Athletic to give an update on things.

Snyder, who is running for re-election this year, has put Detroit front and center in his policies including appointment of Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, which he will likely talk about.

The governor will be appearing fresh from his week-long trade mission to Europe which includes stops in Germany and Italy.

The four-part Pancakes & Politics series is presented by the Michigan Chronicle and Real Times Media. Snyder is appearing in the second of the four forums.

“Pancakes” will be moderated by Carol Cain, Emmy winning senior producer and host of CBS 62’s “Michigan Matters.”

Michigan Chronicle Senior Editor Bankole Thompson will pose questions along with Cain. And the “Pancakes” audience will have a chance to ask a few questions too.
