Clean Michigan Government Flooded With Signatures As Campaign To Cut Legislator Pay And Enact A Part Time Legislature Gains Momentum

Petitions received in one day by Clean Michigan Government

Clean Michigan Government, the campaign to cut the pay of Michigan legislators and enact a part time legislature, is being flooded with petition signatures being returned after a recent mail campaign. The plan also links legislator pay with what teachers make.

Clean Michigan Government mailed hundreds of thousands of petitions, and Michiganders are responding: nearly 3,000 sheets are being mailed back daily.

The group plans to submit the petitions to the state sometime in early 2018.

The campaign was started by Lt. Governor Brian Calley, who has handed over leadership of the group to Tom McMillin, a former State Rep. and current State Board of Education member extremely popular with conservative grassroots activists.

Calley is now running for Governor of Michigan.

Polls show Republicans in the Great Lakes State overwhelmingly support the plan in large numbers.

71% backed the initiative in the latest poll conducted by Strategic National, the same firm who predicted President Trump’s historic victory in Michigan.
