Quick takes

Michigan CoC on the Fair Tax initiative:

“Our concern at the Michigan chamber will primarily be for taxpayers and the extremely negative impact this proposal would have on job creation, job retention and the state’s economic competitiveness,” Studley said.

“We're in a fierce competition with other states for jobs, including states like Florida and Texas that have no income tax, so anyone who works and pays taxes should be concerned.” ~Rich Studley, @rstudley Source

Actual businessman speaking of competition with Texas:

Duo Security started in Ann Arbor and the city remains the cybersecurity firm's headquarters, but it's no longer the location where the 900-person company is expanding. Rather, it's the Sun Belt technology hub of Austin, Texas, that now stands as Duo Security's fastest-growing office.

[Duo Security co-founder and GM Dug Song] sees no shortage of other public policy issues facing the city of Detroit … Top of mind for the 44-year-old entrepreneur: the state's struggling K-12 education system, the region's lack of integrated mass transit and a culture that he says inhibits a more robust startup community in the metro Detroit area and the broader state. Song is on record about his support of higher taxes to pay for some of these items … “And yes, that takes taxes. … It's a huge opportunity.” @DugSong source
