Most of you probably get a weekly email from us. Some of you more than one. They’re sent to smartphones, tablets, iPads, laptops and desktop computers and keep you up to date on the latest developments going on at the Center.

“Our various email options let people pick and choose what type of information they want to receive from us on a regular basis,” according to Dan Armstrong, marketing and communications team leader. “It can be tailored to their interests and delivered right to their inbox.”

The options to choose from include:


Michigan Capitol Confidential: The Center’s daily news service delivers timely and insightful analysis and commentary on state policy issues that the old line media cannot or will not cover. Links to that day’s top stories are sent each morning at 6:30 a.m.


This Week at Mackinac: Known as “TWAM” for short, this update is sent out every Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. and provides a look at the top items from the Center’s blog and CapCon for the week.


Michigan Education Digest: This weekly compilation of the top education stories from around the state arrives at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesdays and provides a free-market based perspective on issues affecting public schools.

Overton Window

The Overton Window: An occasional, unique look at specific policy matters viewed through the lens of the Overton Window of Political Possibility, a concept invented by our late vice president, that explains how a narrow range of policies can be considered politically possible at a given time — and how that window can be shifted.


Viewpoint on Public Issues: A monthly roundup of our “Op-Ed” style commentaries that address specific public policy issues and provide specific policy prescriptions — you will often see these reprinted on the editorial pages of newspapers across the state and nation.
