Governor-elect Rick Snyder has named Greg Andrews as his representative to northern Michigan. Andrews will help the incoming Republican governor stay connected with that part of the state. Snyder announced the appointment yesterday.
A press release posted on the Governor-elect's website says:
Andrews previously served as Snyder’s northern Michigan field representative during the campaign. In that role, he built relationships with local leaders in 37 counties – relationships Snyder will rely on to stay in touch with the concerns of residents across northern Michigan. “Greg’s number one priority is to end the disconnect between Lansing and northern Michigan,” Snyder said. “He will have a direct line to the governor’s office.”
Andrews' office will be based in Marquette.
