The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes on today’s State Supreme Court Decision.
“We are disappointed in today’s State Supreme Court decision. Over the course of the last 6.5 months, Governor Whitmer, with guidance from public health specialists, has enacted a set of regulations intended to protect the lives and well-being of all Michiganders. Because of her swift and decisive actions countless lives have been saved.
Today’s decision was handed down by a narrow majority of Republican justices who appear to be playing partisan politics with our lives. We deserve better representation on our state’s highest court. We can make that change this November by electing Elizabeth Welch to the State Supreme Court.”
