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?

Statement from Michigan AFL-CIO President Karla Swift on the Resignation of State Treasurer Dillon

Whether serving in the Michigan Legislature or as State Treasurer, Andy Dillon never had the best interests of working families at heart. The fact that Gov. Snyder appointed him in the first place shows the administration’s commitment to serving corporate special interests.

The timing of this announcement raises questions. Why would Dillon step down now, just as Governor Snyder’s secretive NERD Fund is beginning to receive serious scrutiny? We respect the Dillon family’s need for privacy, but wonder why it wasn’t an issue months ago.
