Statement from Progress Michigan on Governor Snyder Retaining State Contract with Aramark

MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan issued the following statement on the news that the state would — once again — fine Aramark over prison food service violation and apply more state oversight:

“Rather than do the right thing and cancel the state’s contract with Aramark, Governor Snyder has decided to invest even more public resources into this failed privatization venture,” said Hugh Madden, communications director for Progress Michigan. “Governor Snyder needs to end this experiment and admit he made a mistake by hiring Aramark in the first place. Any future mistakes made by Aramark will fall squarely on the governor’s shoulders. Our ‘Tough Nerd’ governor has once again shown that he favors corporations over good government.”
