HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - It was part ceremony, part campaigning for Rick Snyder in Holland yesterday.
The Governor made his fourth straight appearance at what used to be known as the Governor's Luncheon at the Tulip Time Festival, before predecessor Jennifer Granholm skipped four of the eight that she was invited to, compelling organizers to rebrand the event. Before a crowd of around 900 at DeVos Fieldhouse, Mr. Snyder extolled the Holland area's succcesses while expressing his vision for the future, as he is running for reelection against presumptive Democratic challenger Mark Schauer on November 4.
After the luncheon, the Governor addressed some issues before reporters in this video clip. Audio from the Governor's luncheon address, along with remarks from Rudolf Bekink, the Ambassador to the US from the Netherlands who was also in attendance at the luncheon, is available by going to our podcasts: http://whtc.com/podcasts/whtc-news/
