President and CEOLansing RegionalChamber o CommerceAs much as anything,the 2013 local elections are areerendum on building a teamthat will embrace a unifed visionor the City o Lansing.”
Everybody wants to move the region orward. The challenge oten times is ingetting people to agree on how best to accomplish that. When dierences exist,people with a spirit o collaboration are able to identiy common ground and orgecompromises that benet the greater good.Unortunately, in the political arena, the spirit o collaboration and cooperationdoesn’t always break through. This has been most evident in recent years in thepublic dierences with members o the Lansing City Council. The result hasserved to tarnish the image o the region, which doesn’t help when it comes toattracting new investment and jobs or Greater Lansing.As much as anything, the 2013 local elections are a reerendum on building ateam that will embrace a unied vision or the City o Lansing. It’s about who willset aside partisanship and game playing and the desire to “one-up” a oe to maketough decisions that are needed to strengthen the city and the region as a whole.From the Lansing Regional Chamber’s point o view, one o the most signicantdevelopments in this election season has been the decision or the Chamber andthe United Auto Workers (UAW) to orge a partnership and jointly support thesame candidates or Mayor and Lansing City Council. In the course o workingtowards our joint endorsement news conerence, it was evident to all o us thatthe UAW and the Chamber share the same desire to move the region orward andcreate more jobs.Despite dierent backgrounds and varying approaches to some issues, our twoorganizations were able to identiy common ground. Since our initial decisionto work together, the UAW and the Chamber have been building a strongerrelationship, predicated on a growing level o trust. The very same thing can andmust happen at Lansing City Hall. We need a team approach in Lansing City government. There are some toughchallenges ahead, especially implementing reorms needed to restore the City to scal health. It is also clear in recent months that the general public is muchmore open to regional approaches that encourage greater collaboration andconsolidation o government services. We now need leaders with the same desireto work together or the greater good.Our region needs a vibrant central city in order to reach our ull potential. Thatrequires bold leadership and working cooperatively to make tough decisions orthe common good.I it aects the City o Lansing, it aects East Lansing, Meridian, Delta, Delhiand Lansing Townships, and the rest o the tri-county region. We are in this together!
