A Governor’s Story: The Fight for Jobs and America’s Economic Future – Co-authors Jennifer Granholm & Dan Mulhern

Mon, 10/17/2011 – 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters, SF

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm inherited a financial crisis that put not just her state, but the entire American auto industry at risk. Her response to this crisis makes for a gripping account of grit and optimism, as her pragmatism collides with political gamesmanship and ideology. Through innovations that include private-public partnerships with clean energy businesses and auto companies, and a restructured workforce training program, Granholm’s efforts spurred more than $57 billion in private investment. In 2010, jobs grew at the fastest rate of any other state, and by the year 2020, new companies are expected to create nearly 90,000 jobs.

Jennifer Granholm was the two-term governor of Michigan, a state synonymous with manufacturing during a financial crisis that threatened to put all America’s major car companies into bankruptcy. The immediate and knock-on effects were catastrophic. Granholm’s grand plans for education reform, economic revitalization, clean energy, and infrastructure development were blitzed by a perfect economic storm.

Granholm was a determined and undefeated governor, who enjoyed close access to the White House at critical moments (Granholm stood in for Sarah Palin during Joe Biden’s debate preparation), and her account offers a front row seat on the effects of the crisis. Ultimately, her story is a model of hope. She hauls Michigan towards unprecedented private-public partnerships, forged in the chaos of financial freefall, built on new technologies that promise to revolutionize not only the century-old auto industry but Michigan’s entire manufacturing base. They offer the potential for a remarkable recovery not just for her state, but for American industry nationwide.
