Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is featured in a Rising to the Challenge piece in the fall issue of Spartan, the Michigan State University Alumni Magazine.
Gov. Whitmer tells Spartan editor Paula Davenport that her average day begins around 5:00 a.m. “whether it's necessary or not, that's when I get up and start moving. As governor, I can spend a 12-hour day in the office or I am frequently out on the road.”
She adds that it’s still hard at times to believe she’s governor.
