Sometimes it amazes me how the governor doesn’t get it. Here we are in a state that has incredible resources, natural inclinations of production, and all the parts and pieces needed to make Michigan second to NONE in the country. Indeed it is astonishing that after destroying the manufacturing sector, strangling the energy needs of Michigan citizens, and paying off unions through favored contracts and increased Michigan government, we now find her snubbing meat producers and farms in Michigan. (and fast food, restaurants, etc..)
‘Michigan hunters and meat producers had a collective cow today at the news Gov. Jennifer Granholm had issued an official proclamation declaring Saturday “Michigan Meatout Day.” ‘
Cox wasted no time offering his support to the Meat producers however, and today responded to Governor Granholm’s proclamation making Saturday “Michigan Meat-Out Day” by announcing he would celebrate it with a barbecue at his campaign headquarters in Livonia.
“Instead of telling Michigan families they shouldn’t eat meat on Saturday, I’d like to invite them to a barbecue in Livonia,” said Cox. “Michigan’s agricultural community, meat and dairy producers work hard to put food on their own tables and on ours and I’m looking forward to supporting them on Saturday by eating a burger myself.”
The Cox campaign will host the barbecue for local volunteers and activists on Saturday, March 20th from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the campaign headquarters in Livonia.
Cox invites those interested to visit www.mikecox2010.com or call his campaign office at (734) 525-5035.
