Kevin Rinke: If we ran our business the way Whitmer runs our state, we’d be ridiculed, scorned, and bankrupt

Good leaders live by a simple but critical rule — leaders eat last.

Simply put, it means that leaders make sure the people who they serve and for whom they are responsible are taken care of first. 

In our family company, that’s exactly how we operated. 

For over 100 years, our family invested in our customers and our employees, and made sure they were taken care of, valued and trusted. 


We owned and operated our family automobile business in Michigan for over 100 years, providing quality jobs for thousands of Michiganders. If we had run our business the way Governor Whitmer ran this state, we’d be ridiculed, scorned, and bankrupt – and rightfully so.

In politics, it’s the opposite.

Politicians eat first, and act as if voters should be grateful for whatever crumbs are left over.

That’s what we are seeing with Governor Whitmer’s latest debacle. 

Whitmer epitomizes the rank elitism and hypocrisy ruining our politics, our state, and our country. 

After making it impossible for small businesses and working families to escape the economic chaos caused by her policies, Whitmer conveniently ignores those same policies when it inconveniences her and her family. 

“Rules for thee, but not for me.”
