MARK SCHAUER, D-Battle Creek, talks to voters in Atlanta about his mission to defeat Gov. Rick Snyder in next year's gubernatorial election. has sights set on being Michi overnor - s Swr Mark Schauer, D-Battle Staff r@0rler Creek, is on a mission to take down his third republican incum- bent, and his next target is Gov. Rick Snyder. At a visit to The Dinner Table in Atlanta on Oct. 12, Schauer said he's looking for- ward to working with the people of Mont- morency County in order to change the direction of Michigan. "This election, your county, although it' s a small county, is a very imp ortant p art of a puzzle for changing the direction of our state," Schauer said. He defeated his first republican incum- bent in a race for the state House in 1996. Six years later, he defeated a republican incumbent in a run for the state Senate and went on to become the democratic leader in the Senate. In 2008, he won a run for Congress where he says he helped rescue the auto indus- try and supported the Affordable Care Act. "The leading cause ofbankruptcyin this countryis medical bills," Schauer empha- sized. Democrats didn't mm out to vote in 2010, Schauer said, and the result of that was Snyder's victory as governor. He called Michigan a "blue state" and said people just have to show up at the polls in order to win the next gubernatorial dec- tion, because democrats have won 11 of the last 12 elections in Michigan. He said Snyder has preyed on women, teachers, retirees, union members and protectors of natural resources in order to fund $1.8 billion in tax giveaways to cor- porations. "They weren't even required to create one job as a result of it, and they're not Creatingjobs," Schauer said. "Under Rick Snyder, we are the fourth worst unem- ployment rate in the country." Chuck Colsher, retired POStal worker, said he has 1,600 reasons why he won't be voting for Snyder. The tax Snyder imposed onhis pension costs him about $1,600 per year. Schauer Said, if elected governor, he would eliminate the pension tax, because it's causing people to want to move out of Michigan. He was previously involved with a community action agency that pro- vided Head Start and Meals on Wheels programs, and he said he'll make educa- tion his first priority. He said he doesn't believe in privatizing education for the benefit of for-profit management, as Snyder has been doing. "We have a constitutional guarantee to a quality public education for every child," Schauer said.
