Progress Michigan Statement on Decision to end Aramark Contract 

LANSING — Progress Michigan released the following statement in response to Aramark’s contract being cancelled by mutual agreement.

“Today’s announcement is great news for people who value accountability. Progress Michigan is pleased that Gov. Rick Snyder has finally answered our repeated calls to cancel the Aramark contract,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “While Aramark’s performance failed at every turn, the Snyder administration also failed to properly monitor and hold Aramark accountable. The Governor should no longer experiment with prison privatization, instead he should work to bring back the workers who did a quality job on behalf of Michigan taxpayers. We cannot afford another out-of-state corporation abusing public trust and misusing hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.”
