Join with League to Promote Positively Michigan   (Misc News: June 23, 2011)

Positively Michigan, the MCUL & Affiliates’ campaign to compile suggestions to improve the state, has proved quite popular so far, generating dozens of comments so far.

One Michigan credit union that is doing its part to help spread the word about Positively Michigan is First Community FCU in Parchment. First Community Marketing Manager Nancy Loftis said the credit union has promoted Positively Michigan on its website, in its monthly newsletter, with posters and via an email blast.

The league launched Positively Michigan at AC&E with a video that also served as a welcome to Gov. Rick Snyder, who spoke at the Grand Rapids conference.

“I love that campaign because that’s what it’s about, being positive in Michigan,” Snyder said.

The league is compiling the suggestions and will send them to Snyder, who has promised to look at them.

Here are a couple of the responses he will see:

From Pamela A. Frucci:
“Michigan could be in the same ranking as Hawaii, Vermont, Maine and Alaska as high tourist attracting states. They have all banned billboards. Tourists would flock to Michigan to enjoy our beautiful peninsulas if we banned commercial billboards!”

From Lisa:
I love this! What a great idea. I would like to see Michigan offer free land and police protection to any businesses that would bring infrastructure-type stores like grocery into the city of Detroit.
