LANSING, MI, November 4, 2019 – The Michigan Freedom Fund today named Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey as the first recipients of their “Freedom Fighter of the Month” award.
“Majority Leader Shirkey and Speaker Chatfield have time after time stood up for workers and taxpayers,” said Tony Daunt, Executive Director of the Michigan Freedom Fund. “They worked hard and delivered a balanced budget – on time – without raising taxes. They’ve listened to taxpayers, who spoke loud and clear to oppose Governor Whitmer’s disastrous 45-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike, and they’ve defended students, workers, families and law enforcement from the governor’s cynical attacks.”
The “Freedom Fighter of the Month” is a new award, created by the Freedom Fund to recognize those individuals who are diligently working to defend taxpayers and protect our Constitutional freedoms.
