with poll: Local leaders give Rick Snyder improved ratings in U-M survey
Michigan’s local government leaders feel more positive about Gov. Rick Snyder’s leadership than they did a year ago, according to a University of Michigan survey released Wednesday, MLive reported.
But there’s plenty of room for improvement, the survey from The Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy at U-M’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy found.
The survey found 49 percent of local officials in 2012 rated Snyder's performance as good or excellent, compared with 37 percent the year before. Fewer than two in 10 (19 percent) said he's doing a poor job.
The survey conducted this spring found 50 percent of responding local government officials said the state is headed in the right direction. That’s an improvement from 32 percent at the same time last year.
