September 11, 2012

Sept. 11, 2012 - Mayor George Heartwell and four of six Grand Rapids City Commissioners (James White, Ruth Kelly, Rosalynn Bliss, and Elias Lumpkins) pose with members of MoveToAmend-Grand Rapids on the occasion of their signing a letter to Governor Snyder requesting that he “take the strongest measures” to correct the abuses of the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings that corporations are people and money is speech, on which the 2010 Citizens United case is based.  Commissioners Gutowski and Shaffer declined to sign.
