LANSING, MI (WHTC) - The “retirement” of former state legislator Patty Birkholz was apparently short-lived. The Saugatuck Republican, who stepped down as director of the Michigan Office of the Great Lakes last month, was named on Friday by Governor Snyder to the Great Lakes Protection Fund Board of Directors for a two-year term. She and other panel members will meet quarterly to govern fund operations for the private, nonprofit corporation and permanent environmental endowment that supports collaborative actions in improving the health of the lakes’ ecosystem. Birkholz had spent three terms in the state House and two in the Senate.
