Left of Lansing Podcast–Episode 19: Former Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer

The 19th episode of the Left of Lansing podcast is posted!

This week’s guest is former Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer.

During his tenure from 1995-2013, Mr. Brewer helped lead Democrats to major electoral victories, including the governorship in 2002, and the Democrats taking over the state House in 2006.

Please recall, this was at a time when right-wing conservatism held major sway not just in Michigan, but in the country. Well, I guess right-wing ideologies still enjoy large swaths of popularity in parts of the country.

Mr. Brewer and I discuss a number of topics, including the direction of the Michigan Democratic Party, fighting back against the Michigan right-wing’s voter disenfranchisement schemes, Governor Whitmer’s budget plan to fix Michigan, and why we progressives must remain vigilant despite last year’s electoral success.

I praise Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib for leading the fight against the Trump Regime’s disgusting detention center conditions on the border. But while some Democrats are shining a light on one of the most despicable human rights violations in history, some aren’t feeling the urgency of this crisis. And that’s a problem the Democratic Party is having at this perilous time.

I also echo Mr. Brewer’s call to remain active and engaged in our election process. The Michigan right-wing despised democracy, which is why they work day and night to erase voting rights.

Stay informed.
