Stateside for Tuesday, May 28th, 2013
There are many ideas and strategies being talked about for how to keep young people in Michigan. On today's show: we spoke with one young writer who says it's simply not enough.
And we heard about how refugees, having survived physical and psychological traumas in their home countries, are getting mental health services here in Michigan.
Also, Rick Pluta gave us an update on ex-Justice Diane Hathaway, who was sentenced for fraud in federal court today in Ann Arbor.
First on the show, focus is starting to turn to Election 2014 in Michigan. Former Democratic Congressman Mark Schauer filed paperwork this morning to run against Governor Rick Snyder in 2014, assuming that the Governor does decide to run for a second term. And Democratic Congressman Gary Peters announced earlier this month that he’ll run for the U-S Senate seat open in 2014 because of Carl Levin’s retirement.
So, it appears that the Democrats are beginning to get their ducks in a row, but what about Republicans?
Bobby Schostak, Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, joined us today to discuss the issue.
