Snyder Keynote Speaker Wednesday at Muskegon Community College Commencement

From Mary Valentine's blog -- I intend to be there with my camera in my hand

Gov. Snyder is the keynote speaker at the MCC graduation this Wednesday evening, May 4 at the Walker Arena.

There are many people who want to make a statement about the governor and his policies. Although there is no sponsoring organization, there is a group of people that want to have a silent demonstration outside the Walker Arena before the graduation. We will be gathering between 6:00 and 6:15 in front of the Walker Arena for the silent protest, this Wednesday, May 4.

It would be a nice gesture to have signs that congratulate the grads. We are all so proud of their accomplishments. But we also need signs that hold our governor accountable for his leadership: his decisions to gut education, give Emergency Managers unprecedented powers, and raise taxes on the poor and the old.
