Voter's Guide 2012


Welcome from MRA Board Chairman, Janet Sossi Belcoure...

I am pleased to provide you with this Voter’s Guide.

Inside this important election tool, you will find information including voting records for all elected officials and a listing of candidates who have received our endorsement for United States Senate, United States House of Representatives, Michigan House of Representatives and Michigan Senate. It is my sincere hope that you take this Voter’s Guide with you to the polls and that you vote for those candidates who best support our industry.

For incumbent legislators, an endorsement is automatically earned for those who support our industry’s positions on at least 70 percent of all votes. For all others, endorsements are the result of a long process that involves interviews of candidates, the review of candidate surveys on foodservice industry issues, and the approval of the MRA Board of Directors. Please be assured that the endorsements awarded are well-deserved by the candidates receiving them.

Again, thank you for your support of the MRA. Without it, we would not have the political clout that we wield in Lansing and Washington, DC. If you have any questions about these endorsements, or any other political or legislative issue, please do not hesitate to contact the MRA Public Affairs staff at 800/968-9668.

Most importantly, do not forget to vote November 6th!

Love and pasta,

Janet Sossi Belcoure
