With businesses floundering and the economy struggling, Ben Glardon would like to hold the state accountable, control spending and bring transparency to the process. Ben Glardon is not a career politician, just a citizen who is tired of the political rhetoric that has brought this state to its knees. That is why he is listening to your concerns and would like to be your voice in Lansing to fix Michigan. His position on fixing Michigan and reforming state government is so strong that he has been endorsed by the Michigan Homebuilders Association and received the Stamp of Approval from the Small Business Association of Michigan.
