LANSING — Just before noon today, a jeans-clad Gov. Jennifer Granholm took her scrapbook in arm, said final goodbyes, and walked out of her Lansing executive office.
For the last time.
Granholm turned over the keys to Gov.-elect Rick Snyder’s staff, who will begin his move-in this weekend. He’ll be sworn in Saturday at noon to become Michigan’s 48th governor.
Granholm clutched a scrapbook of her eight years as governor, compiled by her staff, as she said her final farewells to the remaining transition staff. The executive office is in the Romney Building, across the street from the Capitol.
And the 95th Legislature comes to a close.
Sine Die Session Goes Out With A Whimper
The House and Senate were both in session Wednesday for the last day of the term, Sine Die, but there was no last-minute flutter of activity.
The battle is finally over.
