Jennifer Kurland hopes to be the Michigan Green Party’s candidate for Governor in 2018.
Kurland is now President of the Redford Union School Board. She wants to strengthen the state’s public school systems, especially Detroit Public Schools.
Kurland would also focus on rectifying the Flint water crisis, which she has researched in detail for a documentary. She says that debacle was the state government’s fault.
“The state needs to make Flint whole,” both in terms of money and infrastructure, Kurland said. “They knew before they switched Flint over to the Flint River that the water treatment plant could not properly treat water, and did nothing, and said nothing.”
But as for larger issues with water infrastructure and what Kurland calls “local corruption,” Kurland says both major parties share the blame. “I personally believe the Democratic Party is no longer viable and is a dead party,” she said.
