Whitmer Makes Education a Priority
EAST LANSING, July 5, 2016 — The following can be attributed to MEA President Steven Cook:
“It’s unconscionable that Gov. Snyder has chosen to continue appealing the recent court decision that school employees should be refunded the 3 percent of their salary that was illegally taken from them.
“In light of Attorney General Schuette’s decision not to participate in any appeal of this matter, Gov. Snyder’s choice today can only be interpreted as a continued attack on school employees and a continued waste of taxpayer dollars on a politically-motivated appeal, that the state has lost every step of the way.”
