This week, Republican Garrett Soldano submitted petition signatures in an attempt to get on the ballot as a candidate for Michigan governor.

Soldano, 43, is a chiropractor from Mattawan and initially gained political support during the spring of 2020 by opposing Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During a speech Wednesday outside the Michigan Department of State office building, Soldano expressed his desire to represent Michiganders.

"I am here to represent the people," Soldano said. "We are going to bring transparency and truth back to governing ... again, which is much needed."
