The Michigan EBT card for State assistance is known as the "Bridge Card" and features an image of the Mackinac Bridge in the upper background.

Gretchen Whitmer is the Democratic candidate for Governor in the 2018.  This is one of her yard signs.  Subtle, no?

Key points of her platform:
  • Massive infrastructure spending on roads, water distribution and internet access. 
  • Expand Medicaid.
  • Enter Michigan into the US Climate Alliance to lower carbon
  • Pour money into training regardless of recipient's aptitude or desire.
  • Mandate universal preschool.
  • Increase funding to public education.
  • Close the income gap between inner cities and suburbs.  Details unavailable.
  • $15/hour minimum wage.
  • Repeal Right-to-Work laws in Michigan.
  • Subsidize affordable housing.
  • Enforce gender pay equity via the court system and regulations.
  • Renew funding of Planned Parenthood
  • Mandate paid family leave for all employees.
  • Expand civil rights to protect all 56 genders.
  • Universal right to vote.
  • Enforce diversity across all state agencies including State Police troopers.
Unfortunately, she has about a 50:50 chance of winning.
