Snyders wish Mich. happy holidays
Lansing — Gov. Rick Snyder and his wife Sue have released a video greeting to Michigan residents, wishing them a happy holiday season but urging them to keep in mind those less fortunate than themselves and those who serve in the military.
The Republican businessman starts his second four-year term as Michigan chief executive next week.
In the 38-second message, Snyder says the weeks that include Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year's Day are "a great time of year to be in Michigan."
The governor says the season brings "joy and time with loved-ones" and gives people "a chance to step back from … busy lives" and to appreciate all that they have.
He urges that people remember during their own celebrations to "be sure to help the less fortunate."
"And let's remember those in uniform who are away from home, defending our freedoms," he said.
Sue Snyder added: "We hope that you and your family have a happy holiday season, and we wish you all the best in the coming year."
