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 Politico.com — 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.”

Ex-AG Cox at Dykema

The old Lansing regime apparently doesn’t have to look too far for their next gigs. In fact, they may just be working alongside you.

First, ex-Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop announced last week he’s joined Clark Hill PLC. Now, former Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox is taking up professional residence at Dykema Gossett PLLC.

Dykema Chairman and CEO Rex Schlaybaugh told Crain’s Detroit Business that Cox moves in Jan. 17 as a senior attorney in its litigation department in Detroit. Health care fraud, white-collar criminal law and federal and state regulatory compliance will be among his specialties.

This makes one wonder whether former Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm will announce sometime next that she’ll be the next one from the Capitol Hill Class of 2002-10 going back into private practice. They come in threes, y’know.
