North Shore Dock  is a company in Michigan that stores boats, builds and maintains docs and provides marine services. One of the boats in their care belongs to the Governor of Michigan - Frau Whitmer.
From their Facebook page:

NorthShore Dock LLC
As everyone knows, weather in Northern Michigan is always changing and often is unpredictable. Spring 2020 has been another year for the record books. After the early Spring and relatively mild Winter NorthShore Dock began our Spring install season early and ready to take on the world--- and then Covid-19 happened. After the government mandated shutdown, we opened 5 weeks later with the same number of customers wanting their docks and boats, but with less time to get them in! Every year it is a puzzle to meet the requested dates and with the recent happenings, it made it even more interesting.

After a long day of keeping crews running, adhering to the additional safety regulations that need to be in place to operate our small business, and fielding calls from customers frustrated with our lagging installation schedule I was told that the Governor’s husband called asking for install availability. Up until this point we as a company had no idea we installed their dock or boat. I did not choose to ignore or change any plans we had. We simply let him know--- Sorry, we have a lot going on with very little time to get it done. We will get you in line to install as soon as we can, ALL our customers are valued and we cannot place you in front of others who scheduled earlier. This answer was met with respect and understanding.

Was karma in play? Maybe. The post about this incident was made on a personal page and has gone viral. It has since been removed as it has caused our already busy days before the holiday to be INSANE. As much as we know you would all like to talk press, we do not have time. We have work to do and we have a business to run. Thank you to those who have shared their support.

Michigan residents and specifically our NorthShore Dock followers--- we wish you health, happiness and SUNSHINE. We hope you enjoy your time here in Northern Michigan and we are happy to help with any dock, boat or storage needs. We hope to enjoy Summer 2020!

Major kudos to them for keeping things democratic and telling the governor's hubby to wait his place in line. Not at all surprised that he would be asking for an advantage though - that is what the "privileged elite" always get - it is their right.
