Independent gubernatorial candidate Schleiger wants lower insurance rates, no new taxes

Todd Schleiger

As we move towards the midterm elections on November 6th, Stateside has been having conversations with statewide candidates, including those running for governor. We've spoken with Republican candidate Bill Schuette, Democratic candidate Gretchen Whitmer, and Libertarian candidate Bill Gelineau.

Up next is independent candidate Todd Schleiger.


Schleiger describes himself as an independent with the the U.S. Taxpayer’s Party.

“I am affiliated with the party, but I’m not loyal to the party. I’m loyal to the people of Michigan, and that’s what sets me apart from these other candidates,” he added.

Schleiger said he believes that the only way to get real change in Michigan is from the governor’s office. 

“That way, if you can’t get the Senate or House to agree with you, you can go directly to the people,” he said.  

Listen to the full interview above to hear more on Schleiger’s experience, his tax plan for the state, and his thoughts on the independent voter base.
