Michigan’s new secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, has released details of her personal finances.
She says this sort of disclosure should be required of all state elected officials.
Benson, a Democrat, says Michigan suffers from low trust of public officials, and it will be up to public officials to help restore people’s confidence in state government.
“There’s a reason why 48 other states and the federal government require this of their elected officials.”
Republicans like state Representative Steve Johnson are not entirely on board.
