To all our supporters,
Thank you. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the past 15 months. Your financial support, your physical support, and your emotional support were appreciated to the nth degree. While we may not have made it to the top of Mount Everest, we certainly climbed high. Our campaign received 28,857 votes, nearly doubling the number of votes for the top of the Green Party ticket 4 years ago. Our campaign received the largest number of top-of-the-ticket Green votes in the history of Michigan’s midterms, and received the third largest number of top-of-the-ticket Green votes overall in state history. What this showed is that doing the work creates results.
With a grassroots and all-volunteer campaign we accomplished a lot, and this is certainly not the end of our organizing. I will not be absent in the fights against our incoming Governor’s corporate policies. I will continue to organize the party and build our base to transform Michigan politics. I will continue to support future Green candidates around the state. I am proud of the new Green voters that were brought into the party this year, and am looking forward to bringing in more new Green voters in future years.
It was an honor and a privilege to run for Governor, to represent you and the Green Party. It was inspiring and uplifting to speak to so many people across the state about the important issues affecting all Michiganders. I am humbled by your support, your efforts, and your votes. Thank you for the opportunity to be your candidate of the people, by the people, and for the people.
