James A Huguelet is the Mayor of Perry, Michigan. The city of just over 2,000 people and just east of the State Capitol of Lansing, just sent Governor Whitmer a message that she will not like. They are opening up for business next week and not going to wait until May 28th.
“It is past time that government leadership treat the people of Michigan and of Perry like the responsible, thoughtful adults they are.
Therefore, we will continue not having strict enforcement of these orders and effective immediately the City of Perry will not assist other law enforcement agencies in the strict enforcement of those orders. We will deal with every case as an individual situation and apply common-sense in assessing the apparent violation.
I took an oath to uphold and defend the Michigan Constitution, as well as the U.S. Constitution and to ensure the god-given rights of the people of Perry are not violated. I believe the City of Perry as a municipal government is on the front line to defend your civil liberties.”
