Michigan Capitol Confidential is the news source for Michigan residents who want an alternative to “bigger government” remedies in policy debates. CapCon reports on the public officials who seek to limit government, those who do not, and those whose votes are at odds with what they say.

In addition to the Mackinac Center policy staff already providing exclusive coverage, the Michigan Capitol Confidential team includes Dan Armstrong, Tom Gantert, Jack Spencer and Jarrett Skorup.

Tom Gantert, senior capitol correspondent, previously worked at The Ann Arbor News, Lansing State Journal and Reporting Michigan and has more than two decades of experience covering news and politics in Michigan. Jack Spencer, capitol affairs specialist, is a veteran Lansing-based journalist who worked 13 years at the Michigan Information & Research Service. Jarrett Skorup, digital engagement manager, is the content manager for CapCon and FOIA expert.
