It appears that Genesee county cannot keep a favorite son in the race. If you read political tea leaves who will lead the Dem’s ticket in November? This Lansing Mayor is a fiery street tough campaigner. Can he govern? Probably. Is he better than demo dead duck Dillion and the clowns the republican are putting up? Heck yes.

Ironically Kildee lamented weeks ago when he got the sense that he would be odd man out: Does organized labor want somebody who is a good campaigner or someone who would be a good governor? It was a good question and turns out Kildee was not the answer.[6]

My mind is open, I just did not know who dis guy Vergie is. Following are my notes to find out. With him in this campaign will be fun. I plan on starting some internet stuff. It just might be better to bring me into the tent.
 
TALK ABOUT BEING GROOMED!

If FOXNews thought the mayor of Lansing, Michigan would serve as a convenient punching bag in their fight war against working America, they were wrong! Bernero was born into a UAW family in Pontiac. Watch Mayor Virgil Bernero go Jake LaMotta on the hapless rightwing "news" anchor.Priceless!I'd pay to watch the mayor go a few rounds with Puffy Hannity. Mayor Virg - a workingman's fighter!

Virgil Bernero (born March 31, 1964 in Pontiac, Michigan[1]) is the current mayor of Lansing, Michigan, elected on November 8, 2005. He is a member of the Democratic Party. Prior to serving as mayor, Bernero served as a legislative aide, an Ingham County Commissioner and as a legislator in the Michigan House of Representatives and the Michigan Senate. He is a candidate for Governor of Michigan in 2010..[1]
 
He said he’s got three priorities: making credit companies stop charging outrageous interest rates; put a two-year moratorium on mortgage foreclosures and work with universities and colleges to implement a tuition freeze.[4]

LIFE SHAPING EVENTS
Virg Bernero was born March 31, 1964 in Pontiac, Michigan in the Metro Detroit area. He was the youngest of five children born to Giulio, an Italian immigrant, and Virginia, a first generation Italian-American. Bernero has said that the diagnosis of schizophrenia of one of his brothers, and the death of another brother to AIDS in 1990 (on the same day he was elected to the Ingham County Commission) have helped to shape his life and politics..[1]

EDUCATION
Bernero graduated from Waterford Mott High School in 1982, and from Adrian College in 1986, with a B.A. in political science. He is married to Teri Johnston, with whom he has two daughters, Kelly and Virginia..[1]

15 SECONDS OF FAME
In 2007, Bernero appeared in the documentary Fired! by Annabelle Gurwitch, who became famous after being fired from by Woody Allen under controversial circumstances.[citation needed] The film chronicles the experiences of individuals who have been fired from their jobs. In it, Bernero was interviewed about his efforts to pass a law that would make it illegal for Michigan employers to fire their workers at will or for "moral or ethical reasons.".[1]
Early work

COUNTY COMMISSIONER RACE LOST
Bernero began his involvement in government in 1986, running unsuccessfully for county commissioner in Oakland County. [1]

WORKED FOR GARY OWEN
In 1987, he became a legislative analyst to House Speakers Gary Owen and Lewis Dodak in the Michigan House of Representatives. [1]

COUNTY COMMISSIONER RACE WON
In 1991, he was elected an Ingham County commissioner, where he represented south Lansing for eight years. [1]

OUT OF WORK WENT TO FUNDRAISING
In 1995, Bernero served for four years as a development officer for Alma College and as executive director for the Michigan Association for Children with Emotional Disorders (MACED).[1]

HE KNEW PEOPLE, BACK TO LEGISLATIVE AIDE NOW SENATE
He then served again as a legislative aide in the Michigan State Senate for Senator James Berryman, later moving to various advocacy roles..[1]
Michigan State Representative, IMMEDIATELY TO STATE SENATE
Bernero ran for and won a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives in 2000, serving one term before being elected to the Michigan State Senate in 2002.[1]

KEVINS LAW GUY
During his tenure as State Representative, Bernero co-sponsored Kevin’s Law, which was signed into Law on December 29, 2004. Kevin’s Law allows judges to order outpatient treatment for people with untreated severe mental illnesses who meet specific criteria, including a recent history of hospitalizations, incarcerations, or behaviors deemed dangerous to themselves or others because of any illnesses. .[1]

EMPLOYEE RIGHTS GUY
As a State Senator in 2005, Bernero sponsored Senate Bill no. 381 to keep private from employers what employees do on their own time. Weyco Inc., a health benefits administrator located in Okemos, Mich adopted a policy Jan. 1, 2005 stating that all employees had to be smoke free or they would be subject to termination, even if they were smoking after business hours or at home. The company says the policy was put into place to promote healthier lifestyles and save the company money on employee health care coverage. Bernero’s belief is that the rights of employees should be upheld and what they do on their own time should not be any business of the companies. .[1]

TOOK ON ENGLER
Bernero tried to pass additional mental health legislation, and discussed his opposition to then-Governor John Engler, who pushed for cutting these services. About the reduction of services, Bernero said, “We cut the services, and we end up paying for them in the prison system. It’s inhumane.” .[1]

DARLING OF LGBT COMMUNITY
In 2004, Bernero was given the Ray of Light Award for “Outstanding contributions to the LGBT community,” along with Rep. Gretchen Whitmer and Representative Michael Murphy. .[1]
Mayor of Lansing

RAN AND LOST
In 2003, Bernero ran for mayor of Lansing against incumbent mayor Tony Benavides, who was finishing out mayor David Hollister's term, who had resigned to serve in Gov. Jennifer Granholm's administration. Bernero lost by 258 votes.[9]

CAMPAIGNED AGAIN AND WON
He returned to the state Senate, and launched another campaign for Lansing mayor two years later in 2005. He defeated Benavides, winning 62% of the vote..[1]

MUNICIPAL DEVELOPMENT GUY
During Bernero’s tenure, his administration leveraged over a half-billion dollars in new investment in Lansing. Among the largest redevelopment projects was secured in 2008 when the Accident Fund Insurance Company of America announced it would relocate its national headquarters to downtown Lansing into a former Utility Power Station Facility. .[1]

REGIONAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT GUY
In 2007 Bernero partnered with East Lansing Mayor Sam Singh to launch the area’s first regional public-private economic development initiative, LEAP (Lansing Economic Area Partnership)..[1]

NATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE COALITION SUPPORT GUY!
In 2008, Bernero and mayors and municipal managers from six states traveled to Washington, D.C. to lobby the United States Congress for federal bridge loans for the Big Three Automakers. The group still lobbies for American automotive companies under the newly established national organization, The Mayors and Municipalities Automotive Coalition (MMAC). Bernero was elected chair of the Coalition in late 2008. [12][13][14]
Bernero officially announced on May 2, 2009 that he will seek re-election.[15] Bernero faced Councilwoman Carol Wood and Attorney Charles Ford in the 2009 mayoral primary election..[1]
ELECTED MAYOR
On 4 August 2009, the Lansing primary election results reduced the field of candidates from four to two. Bernero took the highest vote count with 43.93 percent, followed by Councilwoman Carol Wood with 37.71 percent. Attorney Charles Ford (15.51 percent) and LCC cook and musician Ben Hassenger (2.85 percent) did not earn enough votes to participate in the general election..[1]

RE ELECTED MAYOR
Bernero was re-elected as mayor of Lansing in November 2009, winning against opponent Carol Wood with a total of 62.55 percent of the vote count.
DA future Govs path way was made smother when Big Labor made an offer to Dan Kildee he could not refuse. Get the HECK outta the way!

THE ONLY LONG TERM BENEFIT TO CARRYING POLITICAL WATER IS TO THE HORSE THAT DRINKS IT.
Despite his years of carrying the water for labor in Genesee County, it was labor that rewarded Kildee by hanging him out to dry. [6]
