Event Description:
Economic Luncheon


Business Leaders for Michigan has unveiled its Plan for a Stronger Michigan, which identifies key steps to growing good-paying jobs and accelerating our state’s economic turnaround. Michigan has come far, but has much more to do to become even stronger and a “Top Ten” state for jobs, personal income, and a healthy economy. It will require all Michiganders and our elected leaders coming together to propel our state forward by focusing on core issues like improving our K-12 education and job training systems, making college more affordable, and strengthening our infrastructure and fiscal stability.

Tim Sowton is Vice President, Government Affairs & Public Policy for Business Leaders for Michigan and is responsible for policy advocacy, policy development, and leading the organization’s benchmarking efforts.

Tim also served for nine years in the administration of former Governor John Engler, holding several positions focusing on policy and legislation, with his last position being Deputy Director of Legislative Affairs.
