If you’ve talked to me in the past four-ish months you know I have a super in-depth story coming up that I’m really proud of. I so wish I could share that with you but it’s in what I think are the final final stages (at last!)
In lieu of that, here are some other things I’ve been proud of in the past few months:
– I’ve had this idea for a while to combine utility influence all into one place ahead of a legislative overhaul of state energy policy. I’ve seen and reported on bits and pieces of it for an entire year, but frankly I didn’t know what it would look like when I put it all in one place. It looks pretty huge.
– This story was my life for the month of September. I’d like to apologize to my nary-used gym membership that month as well as the entire party I walked out of because I had an urge to rifle through campaign finance documents instead. But it’s important.
– Any Bill Clinton fans out there? This is actually my second time covering the former president. He’s an amazing public speaker even in his later years, and I just recently learned we could have shared an alma mater; he was offered a scholarship to MSU but turned it down.
– And I can’t leave out some Courser/Gamrat coverage. The Michigan State Police report regarding anonymous texts the representatives had been receiving came out this week. It was 386 pages. My dog-earred, flagged, highlighted, margin-noted copy is pictured above.
Looking forward to that biggun’ and some other interesting coverage through the end of the year. Gov. Rick Snyder has three of his four big priorities for 2015 left: Detroit Public Schools, an energy overhaul and criminal justice reform.
