LRCC Statement of Support for Michigan National Guard Troops to Protect Capitol Building
Statement Attributed to Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, Tim Daman
As we monitor the potential for protests in capital cities across the country, the Lansing Regional Chamber stands with Lansing Mayor Andy Schor on his request to Governor Whitmer to activate the Michigan National Guard.
We believe it’s essential to protect our historic Michigan Capitol building and the businesses, offices, and neighborhoods surrounding it. Lansing welcomes visitors each year to exercise their First Amendment rights. However, we will never condone nor view violence as acceptable.
