During a press conference last week Governor Whitmer suggested If you don’t live in in Northern Michigan or the upper Peninsula think long and hard before you take a trip into them.  Folks that’s because her family wanted to be there and she didn’t want the chance of the virus around them.

Now, this is a big step and it’s right before the holiday weekend. We know Memorial Day weekend is coming up a week from now. And so I want to encourage everyone to stay smart and to stay safe, keep your wits about you. Let’s not all go rushing out and force a closure eventually. What we want to do is keep moving forward. And so everyone needs to be a part of this and to do your part. So if you’re in Northern Michigan or the Upper Peninsula and you want to go out to eat with your family, just make sure you do everything in your power to protect yourself from the virus. That means wearing the mask, unless you are about to take part in your meal. It means washing your hands and staying six feet away from others.

And if you don’t live in these regions, region six and region eight, please think long and hard before you take a trip into them. We’re still seeing positive cases of COVID-19 across the state of Michigan. We still have COVID-19 present in the vast majority of our counties. And we’re still losing family members and loved ones to this virus.

It has been reported that Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory, requested special treatment in trying to get his boat placed on the water before Memorial Day Weekend in an area of the state that she particularly asked the people not to go to if they did not live there.  Though the Governor does own some land in that part of the state, the governor’s mansion is 200 miles away from the lake.

“This morning, I was out working when the office called me, there was a gentleman on hold who wanted his boat in the water before the weekend, ”posted Dowker on his Facebook page, said The New York Post. “Being Memorial weekend and the fact that we started working three weeks late means there is no chance this is going to happen.”

“Well our office personnel had explained this to the man and he replied, ‘I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?’” Dowker said.

“We simply let him know— Sorry, we have a lot going on with very little time to get it done. We will get you in line to install as soon as we can, ALL our customers are valued and we cannot place you in front of others who scheduled earlier.”  This is what the NorthShore Dock LLC later posted about the subject.

 

Ryan Maue tweeted, “Gov Whitmer’s husband wanted their boat put in the water up in Northern Michigan which was recently opened up prior to their arrival for vacation. The North Shore Dock company told them no preferential treatment & may be a few weeks.”

 

Ryan Maue continued, “And the Facebook page went kaput. The company employee should not have spilled the beans about his phone call w/Gov’s husband. But they explained the situation and hopefully won’t receive backlash from the incident. Everyone should be able to now enjoy the #PureMichigan water.”

 

NorthShore Dock released statement about Michigan Governor’s husband phone call. The Facebook post has since been deleted.

This came after Governor Whitmer released a statement claiming people should not go to the lake.
