Granholm hails economic recovery at Chrysler event
Governor Granholm says she’s happy to leave office at a time when there’s good news about Michigan’s economy.
The Governor celebrated the addition of a second shift at Chrysler’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant Monday.
Granholm says the announcement shows the domestic auto industry “is back.” She also cited recent economic data showing an uptick in manufacturing.
The Governor did bemoan the State Legislatures’ failure to approve a new international bridge crossing between Detroit and Ontario.
And she took a parting shot at the Ambassador Bridge’s owner, Matty Moroun.
“Canada wanted it, the United States government wanted it. It was bipartisan in support. And yet, the guy who has the Ambassador Bridge was obviously able to be more persuasive with the legislature. It’s unfortunate.”
Granholm says Michigan businesses need another crossing, and she hopes the next State Legislature will take up the issue.
