Michigan Golf Course Owners: Snyder to Help Tourism Industry

Organization Makes First-Ever Endorsement in Political Campaign

LANSING, MI--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) -  The Michigan Golf Course Owners Association today made the first-ever campaign endorsement in the organization's history by publicly backing Rick Snyder for governor, saying he is the best candidate to help create jobs in the tourism industry.

"Our organization doesn't usually get involved in campaigns, but this election is too important to sit out," said MGCOA Executive Director Kate M. Moore. "It's clear Rick sees the value of protecting the environment and using Michigan's natural resources to our advantage to boost the tourism industry, which will create jobs." 

Tourism is the state's third-largest industry.

The Michigan Golf Course Owners Association represents golf course owners and operators throughout the state.
