Former Michigan Governor is Fitzpatrick Lecturer

GranholmheadshotFormer two-term governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm will speak at Canisius College on Tuesday, November 1 at 7 p.m. in the Montante Cultural Center.  Her lecture, entitled “The Mother of All Markets: Creating Clean Energy Jobs in America,” is free and open the public. The event is presented by The William H. Fitzpatrick Chair of Political Science Lecture Series.

Granholm is credited with leading Michigan through a period of unprecedented economic challenge and change, and is an authority on leadership, politics, economic diversification, clean energy policy, advanced manufacturing and industrial clusters. She became the first woman to be elected governor of Michigan in 2002 and in 2006, Granholm was re-elected with the largest number of votes ever cast for governor in the state. Due to the meltdown in the auto industry and the global shift in manufacturing jobs, Michigan had the toughest economy in the nation and Granholm worked to diversify, add new jobs and add emerging sectors, such as clean energy, to Michigan’s economic portfolio. As a result of her leadership, Michigan led the country in the improvement of job market conditions between 2009 and 2010, according to the Gallup Job Creation Index.
