In communities across Michigan, voters went to the polls this past Tuesday. In the 28th state Senate district there was a special primary election on the ballot, and conservative champion Mark Huizenga won a hard-fought victory.
In the state House, Rep. Mark Huizenga has consistently stood up to Governor Whitmer and her attacks on workers and freedom. As the fight to protect Michigan jobs and our Constitutional rights intensifies, it’s critical that we have strong allies in the Legislature who are willing to hold her accountable.
We want to congratulate Rep. Huizenga on his victory and look forward to his leadership in the state Senate.
The rights of Michigan workers, families and students have never been under such intense assault from the governor and liberal bureaucrats. Unprecedented attacks on our neighbors call for an unprecedented response, and the Michigan Freedom Fund is committed to fighting back. Your contribution today will help us stay in the fight.
With your support, we will continue to defend every Michigander’s constitutional rights.

About $3.4 million collected by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s campaign could be in jeopardy if a campaign finance complaint filed by a conservative group is successful. The Michigan Freedom Fund filed a complaint with the state Bureau of Elections Wednesday that alleges the first-term Democrat violated campaign laws on its way to raising a record $8.6 million from Jan. 1 to July 20. The complaint seeks sanctions.
The state’s response to a document request authorized by the Michigan Freedom of Information Act illustrates how some agencies and local governments have found legal ways to use high costs to effectively bar many entities from obtaining government records to which they are entitled. The FOIA law applies to citizens too, not just watchdog organizations. Few residents could afford to pay the amounts municipalities are now routinely demanding.
Here’s the situation: A huge appropriations bill that recently passed out of committee in the U.S. House contained one tiny paragraph that says that any charter school that contracts with a for-profit company for any service will lose all federal funding for its students. That obviously applies to every charter school in Michigan. All schools — charter public or traditional public — likely hire a private company for something, whether it’s technology or food service or plowing the parking lots in the winter. While most all schools hire private companies, the Washington politicians are only targeting charter school students with this cruel and unfair cut.
