COLDWATER (WTVB) - It’s a Gubernatorial politics weekend. Democratic Candidate Mark Schauer, who used to be Branch County’s House Representative on Capital Hill, has public meet and greets set for this afternoon in Branch County and Hillsdale County. Schauer will be discussing his priorities for investing in education and his desire to repeal Governor Snyder’s tax on seniors retirement. Schauer is scheduled to be at Northwoods Coffee in downtown Coldwater from 1 until 2:30 p.m. The stop in Hillsdale is at the Oakley Deli from 3-4:30 p.m. Governor Snyder traveled to Oshtemo Friday night to be the Keynote Speaker of the 119th Annual Kalamazoo County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner. Some paid as much as $300 a plate to attend the dinner and speech. It was part pep talk and part campaign speech as Snyder ran down his list of successes and achievements in the last four years, including balancing the budget, creating jobs and improving the environment for business. He also outlined goals he still has, like job creation and better worker training. He says he is willing to run on his record. About three dozen protestors were there. They say they agree that the Governor has accomplished a lot, but none of it was for the poor and middle class, it was at their expense.
