Posthumus Brings Experience To Snyder Team

Former Republican lieutenant governor and state senator Dick Posthumus is coming back to Lansing.

Posthumus was appointed this month by Gov.-elect Rick Snyder to be a senior adviser. Posthumus will play a key role in the executive branch’s relationship with the state Legislature.

Posthumus unsuccessfully sought to become governor in 2002. He lost to Democrat Jennifer Granholm.

Posthumus has decades of experience in Lansing and is expected to be a key ally for Snyder, who doesn’t have experience at the state Capitol.

Posthumus will have family ties when he works with the new Legislature. His daughter, Lisa Posthumus Lyons, was elected to the state House and begins a term in January representing part of Kent County.
