Granholm Taps Pals for Position
(2008-03-06)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Jennifer Granholm has appointed a
longtime ally to fill a new job in her administration.
Granholm picked Melvin "Butch" Hollowell to be the state's
automobile and home insurance consumer advocate within the Office
of Financial and Insurance Services. The appointment is effective
next month.
Hollowell is now general counsel of the Detroit NAACP. He was
co-chairman of the Michigan Democratic Party from 2003-04 and ran
unsuccessfully for secretary of state in 2002.
Granholm created the insurance advocate post to help make sure
insurance rates are fair around the state, among other duties.
