Justice Corrigan to be appointed head of DHSPosted on December 30th, 2010 1 comment
I am starting to see reports that Governor-elect Rick Snyder is expected to appoint Justice Maura Corrigan director of the Department of Human Services. Tim Skubick is reporting this, so it is reliable information. Justice Corrigan has an extensive background with foster care and adoptive services. Of course, this also means that Snyder will be appointing a new Supreme Court Justice to fill Corrigan’s seat.
With Corrigan’s experience and leadership on child welfare issues in both the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court, she is a natural pick. Clearly, Snyder has done his homework and is making good on his promise to bring Michigan into compliance with the consent judgment.
