Schauer Statement on Federal HUD Investigation of Snyder Administration

HUD Investigating Potential Abuse of Federal Funds by Snyder’s Former MSHDA Director

“This federal investigation underscores the pattern of mismanagement we’ve seen in the Snyder administration,” said Schauer.  “Ultimately, the decision to put Scott Woosley in charge of managing a federal grant that he stood to profit from rests with Rick Snyder himself. It’s time for Snyder to answer serious questions about any potential misuse of federal taxpayer dollars by his administration officials. The people of Michigan deserve a full and accurate accounting of Woosley’s business activities before, during and after his tenure at MSHDA. 

“After four years on the job, it’s clear Rick Snyder puts his family and friends ahead of Michigan taxpayers. As governor, I’ll crack down on wasteful spending, including on contracts like George Snyder’s $41 million furniture contract, and invest those dollars on priorities like schools and roads.”
