Governor Appoints/Reappoints NRC Members in New Year

Among his first acts of 2013, Gov. Rick Snyder has appointed Louise Klarr, of Bloomfield, and reappointed Tim Nichols, of Cadillac, to the Michigan Natural Resources Commission.
As we recently reported, Commissioner Tim Nichols was recently replaced as Chairman of the NRC by Commissioner J.R. Richardson, however his intent was to remain on the NRC for another term.
The seven-member Natural Resources Commission works to conserve, protect and manage the state's natural and cultural resources. No more than four members may be from the same political party.
According to the Governor's office, Klarr manages a 400-acre forest and low-land area for deer and turkey and owns a small amount of acreage for rotational crops, both in Michigan. She also helps oversee a family-owned 30-square-mile cattle business in Elko, Nev. She is a member of Kinship Trust Co.’s board of directors and compensation committee. Klarr, a Republican, holds an associate degree in animal science from the University of New Hampshire. She replaces Frank Wheatlake.
Nichols, a Democrat, is managing partner of Labor-Management Fund Advisors LLC, where he oversees the firm’s marketing and business development. He previously served as director of external relations for AFL-CIO’s building and construction trades department and as president of the Michigan State Building Trade Council.
Appointees will serve four-year terms that expire Dec. 31, 2016, and their appointments are subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
