The recession hit Michigan’s 5th Congressional District hard. The flight of jobs overseas and plummeting personal incomes over the last 30 years has led to reduced security and failed school systems at the local level.
Terry believes that the people of the 5th want to look up rather than down. Terry believes that the hard working Michiganders of the 5th would prefer to have a job or start a successful business and create wealth for their families rather than accept dependence on government handouts to survive.
So, instead of shunning the Governor and private corporations out of loyalty to a fringe ideology, Terry will collaborate with local leaders and industry execs to chart an upward path that will position Flint, Saginaw and Bay City to take part in the reinvention of Michigan.
Rather than giving lip service to job creation and settling for a managed decline, Terry Whitney will promote a host of tried and proven pro-business solutions to make the 5th Congressional District an attractive launchpad for investments by both new and established companies that are ready to hire and train their way to prosperity in the 21st century and beyond.
