Interlochen Public Radio is hosting a conversation about the future of Michigan with candidates for the 101st and 104th District in the Michigan House of Representatives and the 37th District in the Michigan Senate. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 5, from 7:00—8:30pm at the Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall on the campus of Interlochen Center for the Arts.
Invited candidates include: Representative Dan Scripps, Ray Franz, Representative Wayne Schmidt, John Scrudato, Megan Crandall, Howard Walker, and Bob Carr.
The candidates for the House and Senate seats in the upcoming November 2 election will discuss how they would approach these and other big-picture issues if elected. Specific questions will include:
- Economic Growth: What is your strategy to grow the Michigan economy? How will you design a competitive tax structure and public investment strategy to attract business investment and jobs and assure a high quality-of-life to attract and retain talented workers?
- Talent and Education: How will your education policies ensure that Michigan grows, attracts, and retains a world-class workforce to compete in the global economy?
- Efficient, Effective and Accountable Government: What are your budget priorities? What is the role of Michigan’s public sector? What are the opportunities for reform?
The forum is sponsored by the nonprofit Center for Michigan, and Interlochen Public Radio.
