The Michigan secretary of state cited Schoolcraft College president Conway Jeffress for violating Michigan Compiled Laws (MCL) §169.257 by “improperly using public resources to expressly advocate for the passage of a ballot question,” according to the conciliation agreement provided to Campus Reform by the Michigan Secretary of State, along with other lawsuit information.
He was ordered to pay the State of Michigan $75 dollars after its investigation closed, as part of a conciliation agreement.
