Gay-Dagnogo on Capitol Commission Inaction

Monday, May 11, 2020

"I am severely disappointed in the Capitol commission for failing to act. As the leader of the Detroit Caucus, I cannot, in good conscience, stay silent while my members are subject to this level of dangerous harassment. If the previous protest is any indication, the actions of these individuals will only continue to escalate. We cannot wait for tragedy to act; I am asking for the governor to activate the National Guard and Michigan State Police Tactical Operations Department to protect all our public servants. Legislators and staff should not fear for their lives while performing their duties on behalf of the people of this state.
