President Swift’s Statement on the NERD Fund

The public is justifiably outraged over the secrecy surrounding Gov. Snyder’s NERD Fund.  Shutting down this slush fund in an attempt to avoid transparency only raises more red flags.

The citizens of Michigan deserve to know who was funding the governor’s top advisor, paying for upgrades to the governor’s house and covering the living expenses for Snyder’s politically appointed bankruptcy expert.  Closing the NERD Fund without full disclosure of past donors only begs the question: What is Governor Snyder hiding?
