Governor Gretchen Whitmer
Governor Whitmer is tested, tough, and resilient – and we're proud to help her communicate with Michiganders through web, digital, print, and more.
We designed and developed Governor Whitmer’s website for the 2022 campaign with the goal of highlighting her top accomplishments and continued leadership through a difficult year for the state and country. The site serves as a key hub of information on her legislative priorities and access point for those wishing to volunteer and show support for her re-election.
In March of 2020, with Michigan’s death toll soaring, and the state running low on resources, Governor Gretchen Whitmer began pleading with Washington for help while publicly criticizing the lack of a national Covid-19 strategy. Predictably, this provoked President Trump and prompted criticism. During a White House press briefing he dismissed the governor as “the young, a woman governor, you know who I’m talking about, the woman in Michigan.” He declared that his administration would help only governors who were “appreciative” of his efforts.
These remarks were met with swift response from not only Governor Whitmer herself, but many of her supporters who denounced the President’s behavior. The phrase “That Woman in Michigan” caught on, and it became a unifying slogan for those rallying behind Governor Whitmer. Psssst, you can purchase it here!
