Granholm goes West while still staying put in Michigan

With ex-Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop and former Attorney General Mike Cox announcing returns to private practice at Clark Hill and Dykema, respectively, an article in today’s edition of the Detroit Free Press reveals — by way of — where former Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm is headed.

She and husband Dan Mulhern are going to teach this spring at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California-Berkeley. (They won’t be moving to the Bay Area, though, as the couple will continue to live in Lansing.)

They’ll collaborate on a book about her experience leading Michigan during one of its worst economic episodes. It’s planned for publication in September.

You also may see Granholm occasionally on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” as well as a speaking engagement here and there, as she and the former first gentleman signed on with Keppler’s Speakers Bureau.

She said she was not approached for a job by President Barack Obama’s administration, and doesn’t plan to run for office again, adding, “I’m done with that,” she said. “I’m ready for a new thing.”
