Governor Snyder is trying to pull a fast one on the people of Michigan. Rather than disclose donors to his secretive NERD Fund, he has closed the fund in hopes that the questions will go away.
Michigan voters have a right to know who was funding the governor's top adviser, paying for upgrades to the governor's house and covering the living expenses for Snyder's politically appointed bankruptcy expert.
I hope that your paper will continue to investigate this issue and pressure the governor to fully disclose NERD Fund donors. That is the only way to dispel concerns about unethical activity or a conflict of interests.
