Jacquie Gnodtke-Blackwell and Pauline Wendzel both see getting the state through the coronavirus crisis as the most critical issue now facing Michigan.

“The coronavirus is a critical public crisis that actually tipped my decision to run. I realized the economic ramifications of COVID-19 is the biggest problem facing Michigan’s residents and businesses. I believe we are going to be watching a complete restructuring of our social, educational, agricultural, medical, environmental and economic systems,” Gnodtke-Blackwell said.
