"For more than thirty years Tim Skubick has opened the door of state government with reporting that has taken us behind the scenes, onto the legislative floor and even into the Governor's office. His passionate brand of journalism has made an indelible mark on Lansing and on Michigan's political history."---Governor Jennifer M. Granholm "Chatty, anecdotal, and sure to please political junkies."---Meegan Holland, "Booth Newspapers" In the last thirty-four years Michigan residents have elected four governors-Milliken, Blanchard, Engler, and the state's first female chief executive, Jennifer Granholm. We have lived through the PBB poisoning of our food chain, seen governors and lieutenant governors battling for supremacy, watched women emerge as a powerful political force, and endured an endless cast of characters, clowns, crooks, and class acts on our political stage. Only one political journalist has had a front-row seat for all of these events and countless other stories that have shaped our lives since 1969. Now widely acclaimed TV-radio anchor and newspaper columnist Tim Skubick takes you behind the headlines for his inside skinny on Granholm's meteoric rise to governor and speculation that she'd make a great U.S. president. He also dissects the stunning upset victory of John Engler over Jim Blanchard and walks you through the grueling twenty-four-year journey to push property-tax relief through a recalcitrant state legislature. Skubick brings his breezy and witty writing style to a first-of-its-kind book that reveals an insider's edition of the stories about the stories you've never read before. "Off the Record" puts you in a front-row seat right next to the author and the politicians in a history-making book about Michigan politics. If you love the great state of Michigan, you'll love this book.
