What Michigan accomplished in 2014

January 20, 2015

When Governor Snyder delivered his 2014 State of the State address last year, he described an ambitious vision that would continue the reinvention of Michigan.

In the past year, the governor and the state legislature worked together to keep Michigan moving forward on a path to a brighter future, but our work is not yet done.  Watch tonight as Governor Snyder delivers his 2015 State of the State speech at 7 PM.  You can watch live at www.michigan.gov/stateofthestate.

As the governor prepares for his 2015 speech, let’s review what we accomplished in 2014:

Making Michigan #1 in Skilled Trades

Helping Michigan Business Grow

Helping Michiganders

Improving Public Safety

  • Improved public safety by updating the state’s public safety communications system, and increased the number of state troopers from 957 in 2011 to 1,184 in 2015.
  • Between 2011 and 2014, the Secure Cities Partnership has decreased violent crime by 20.2% in Detroit, 28.1% in Flint, 28.3% in Pontiac, and by 26.7% in Saginaw.
