We love making waves at Progress Michigan.
We definitely made the right kind of waves when we released documents showing that the Snyder administration had a hand in quietly removing a $98,000 fine on Aramark, the out-of-state corporation that was handed a $145 million dollar contract to run our state prisons’ food service.
We know you’re busy, so we decided to give you a media rundown of some of the best hits our accountability work has resulted in:
