Michigan’s Unemployment Agency Director has now indicated that he believes that Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer was unprepared for the amount of unemployment claims that have resulted from her draconian lockdown orders.
As Townhall reports:
Though Gov. Whitmer promised that her administration was working toward improvements, Michigan’s Unemployment Agency Director indicates that the Whitmer administration may have been unprepared for the inevitable unemployment spike that would follow Gov. Whitmer’s strict executive order.
In an interview with Detroit News on Wednesday, the agency’s director, Steve Gray, was asked if Gov. Whitmer consulted with him before the shutdown order, and if the two had conversations about a lack of resources in the unemployment agency’s office before the governor issued the shut down on March 23. The director could not confidently say whether or not the Whitmer administration was adequately prepared for the surge in unemployment claims that was sure to follow:
“I don’t know whether or not they happened before March 23rd and I probably shouldn’t comment on any specific conversations that we’ve had with the governor’s office,” Gray told Detroit News.
Gov. Whitmer continually promises constituents that her priority is governance, and the job that Michigan voters elected her to do, but the vice presidential hopeful’s focus seems to be elsewhere.
It seems that the actual welfare of her constituents isn’t anywhere near the forefront of Whitmer’s mind as she continues lockdown policies that are rending millions of them impoverished.
