Progress Michigan leader to examine Schuette record at July 26 meeting
The head of an organization devoted to holding government accountable will speak to Livingston County Democrats this month about the record of Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette.
Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan, will speak at the July 26 meeting of Livingston County Democrats. Progress Michigan, based in Lansing, tries to hold public officials and government accountable by investigating the actions of government officials and publicizing the results, while also promoting progressive ideas.
“Michigan’s attorney general has been under Progress Michigan’s microscope because he has used his state email for private business and put campaign workers on the state payroll while he runs for governor,” said Judy Daubenmier of the Livingston County Democratic Party
Scott has served as chief staffer for state Reps. Alma Wheeler Smith and Jeff Irwin. He also served as state director for Enroll America, a national non-profit that spread the word about how to obtain health care through the Affordable Care Act.
He will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 26, at the meeting at the Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton, 3333 S. Old 23. Light refreshments will be served. The party's regular business meeting will follow.
