As you may have heard, I am seeking a second term as Regent of The University of Michigan. First, I must obtain the support of Republicans across Michigan to gain our party's nomination at the August convention, and then win statewide in what surely will be a very competitive race.
As I did in 1998, I intend to seek and obtain the support of delegates at the convention and win in November. And, to win, I need your help and support.
As Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Domino’s Pizza, David A. Brandon is
creating positive energy and growing profits at the corporation, through an upbeat approach to leadership, and an overall
message to his team members in the form of the company vision: “Exceptional people on a mission to be the best pizza
delivery company in the world!” Brandon has led this charge at Domino’s since March 1999, when he was recruited
to succeed the company’s founder, Tom Monaghan, upon his retirement and sale of the company to Bain Capital, a
Boston-based private equity investment firm. Upon joining the company, Brandon announced plans to grow sales and profits by
honoring the company’s roots of efficient menu preparation and delivery, while overlaying a team spirit of “smart
hustle” and innovation. Profits have increased dramatically under his leadership, through improved customer satisfaction
scores, lower employee turnover and product improvement. Brandon has assembled a strong leadership team, with deep knowledge of
the quick-serve restaurant industry combined with specialty skill sets that drives balanced strategic decisions at Domino’s.
What it Means to Play for Michigan

Excerpt from The Official Game Program, September 3, 2005
When coach Bo Schembechler and his staff decided to offer me a scholarship in 1970, it changed my life in a significant way. As
a senior attending South Lyon High School, the opportunity to attend a world-class university and participate in a nationally-ranked football program was special and exciting.
