‘Put the Middle Class First’ tour to make stop in Lansing

LANSING — Americans United for Change is hitting the road with the national “Put the Middle Class First” bus tour and invites all Michigan residents to attend their stop in Lansing.

The bus tour begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 10, at the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing. The tour is one of many that will support Democratic candidates. The bus tour is designed to inform voters of the differences between candidates running for office in the Tuesday, Nov. 4, election.

Alongside other candidates, local Democratic leaders Nathan Triplett, Mayor of East Lansing and Virg Bernero, Mayor of Lansing, will focus on the agenda to put Michigan’s middle class first.

Speakers will focus on topics like women’s equal pay; making college affordable; raising the minimum wage; creating jobs by investing in infrastructure; and protecting social security and medicare from benefit cuts.

Americans United for Change is an nonprofit advocacy group with a platform that believes candidates like Gov. Snyder and Terri Lynn Land are beholden to corporate special interests like the Koch brothers.
