House speaker's dad to join Western Michigan University board
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has appointed House Speaker Jase Bolger's father to serve on the Western Michigan University Board of Trustees.
James Bolger is a retired Michigan State Police official who lives in Whitehall. The Kalamazoo Gazette says he'll fill the seat vacated when Trustee Michelle Crumm resigned.
Bolger will complete Crumm's eight-year term, which ends on Dec. 31, 2020.
Bolger earned a master's degree in public administration from Western Michigan.
Snyder said in a statement Friday that Bolger "will bring a unique and needed perspective to the board."
The Detroit News says Jase Bolger also attended the Kalamazoo school.
