To the amazing people of Michigan,
Our messages of equality, renewable energy and true democracy are unquestionably strong. Unfortunately, we simply could not acquire the support or resources to reach enough people with those messages. After much thought and deliberation, I have come to the conclusion, with much sadness, that I will no longer be seeking the gubernatorial nominations from the Socialist Party or Green Party to run as your Governor. I have had an amazing time traveling, meeting with people and sharing my dreams for a better tomorrow across our beautiful state. We all deserve so much better than a corrupt and broken system. I wish to give a heartfelt thank you to all of my supporters and appreciate your messages, donations, hard work and encouragement. There is no way that I can truly thank you enough. I understand your disappointment, but I encourage you to take our messages and run with them, treat yourselves and everyone well, and consider running for office. We need citizen politicians, not paid off corporate politicians, to aid in grassroots actions that support our citizens.
Farewell and Good Luck,
