Bill Schuette

A fighter with the guts and the vision to write Michigan’s next chapter. We need more jobs and bigger paychecks. Michigan families shouldn’t have to settle for less than being the best. We’re Michigan, and it’s time to win again.

Bill Schuette is the 53rd Attorney General for the State of Michigan. As Michigan’s top law enforcement officer, Bill Schuette has been a powerful voice for victims. He formed the Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking, engineered the plan to fund the testing of thousands of long-abandoned DNA evidence boxes to provide justice to victims of sexual assault and led the effort to put 1,000 new cops on the street.

Schuette has successfully fought back against corruption. Most recently, he eliminated the state, taxpayer-funded pensions for 13 school principals who embezzled millions from Detroit’s struggling public schools.

Schuette is a strong conservative who successfully sued to stop the Obama Administration from imposing job-killing regulations on Michigan’s economy.

He is a fiscal conservative who has successfully fought against tax increases and to allow Michigan families to keep more of their hard-earned money. Schuette is also a strong defender of the Second Amendment and proudly pro-life.

As Governor, Bill Schuette will fight to make Michigan a national leader in job creation and wage growth. Schuette is tired of Michigan families being forced to accept less. He is committed to cutting taxes, eliminating wasteful spending, and fighting for other pro-growth reforms to put Michigan’s economy and workers back on top.

Michigan has started to recover from the Lost Decade of Jennifer Granholm but now we have to reach higher because families are struggling to get ahead. To start, Bill Schuette will drive a stake through the heart of the legacy of the Lost Decade by finally rolling back the Granholm income tax hike. He will fight to slash auto insurance rates that are the highest in the nation. And, Bill will help our kids be ready for the workforce with an emphasis on early reading skills and a renewed focus on good-paying vocational jobs that will help rebuild our state.

While Lansing and Washington politicians talk and make empty promises, Bill Schuette has established a proven record of delivering results. He advocated effectively for Michigan farmers as the Director of the Michigan Department of Agriculture. He fought successfully for taxpayers, working families and small businesses as a Michigan State Senator, and he protected and upheld Michigan’s constitution as a judge in the Michigan Court of Appeals.

Bill Schuette is a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and studied at the University of Aberdeen, in Aberdeen, Scotland. He received his law degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law.

The Michigan Harvest Gathering has raised more than $10 million and collected millions pounds of food to assist those struggling in poverty.
