Rick Snyder on Government Reform

 


Michigan Dashboard: measure progress & present it publicly

We are creating a means by which to actually measure Michigan's progress. I find it curious that we've had State of the State addresses for decades. Yet I don't know of one where we actually had a report card to gauge our success. Government tends to avoid measures and metrics, since it could lead to criticism. It is time for that attitude to disappear. True success is based on achieving real results for real people. We're going to have tough, hard measurements. Our achievements or lack of progress will be evident, so tonight I'm presenting the Michigan Dashboard.

I will present a summary of this dashboard in every State of the State address I give. It is composed of 21 different measures in five key areas. The measurable areas are economic growth, health and education, value for government, quality of life and public safety. These areas align with how we've organized the executive branch into the group executive structure.

Make Michigan a national leader in transparency and ethics

Michigan's citizens are tired of the divisive political culture in Lansing. Midnight deals, closed doors meetings, lobbyists, and special interest influence have stood in the way of long-term solutions. As Governor, I will ensure that government is open, fair, and accountable to the citizens by making Michigan a national leader in transparency and ethics.
