PUBLIC HEALTH OVER POLITICIANS
Public Health Over Politicians is comprised of public health officials, doctors and nurses who believe the health of all Michiganders should come before partisan and political games. This coalition was formed to oppose Unlock Michigan’s radical proposal to undermine the ability of public health experts to stop the spread of dangerous infectious diseases in Michigan.
To save lives and prevent disease, public health emergencies require swift and decisive responses and quick adjustments. The Legislature is ill-equipped to respond in these life-or-death situations. If this proposal passes, the result will be needless illness, suffering, and death of Michigan citizens, particularly vulnerable senior citizens and children.
