MARQUETTE — Michigan Gubernatorial democratic candidate, Shri Thanedar is touring the UP this weekend, as he meets with voters to share his values and goals for the state.
On Friday, Thanedar visited Houghton, and later that evening, he was in Marquette at Graveraet Elementary for a town hall.
He took questions from the public, and laid out his plans for a stronger, smarter Michigan, if he were to be elected this November. On the democratic side, he’s running against Abdul El-Sayed, and Gretchen Whitmer.
“There are issues that are specific to the Upper Peninsula – we need to bring more economic growth in the U.P., and we need to create jobs and more skill sets,” said democratic gubernatorial candidate, Shri Thanedar. “We haven’t seen much population growth, we’ve seen more people move out of this area, and we haven’t seen too many people move in.”
Thanedar will be making more stops in the UP this weekend:
June 30th – Escanaba, Island Resort and Casino
June 30th – Manistique, Manistique School Public Library
July 1st – St. Ignace, St. Ignace Public Library
