Some supporters of an anti-gerrymandering ballot proposal are targeting the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, and particularly board chairman Mark Davidoff, over the Chamber’s support for a lawsuit that aims to get the proposal removed from the November ballot.
Protesters with Represent Michigan, a local affiliate of the national group Represent.Us, gathered outside Davidoff’s office at Detroit’s Renaissance Center Tuesday. Davidoff is the managing partner for the Michigan office of Deloitte LLP, a global financial advisory and services firm.
Chanting “Drop the suit” and “Let us vote!,” the protesters tried to deliver petitions calling on Davidoff and the Chamber to drop the lawsuit. They were turned away in that effort by Renaissance Center security.
