It's not what you know...

Governor Granholm has appointed a replacement for retiring Judge William Schma. Her choice is one Gary Giguere, a local attorney. How did she decide to pick him?

Giguere, who lives in Portage with his wife, Stephanie, and their three children, is a member of the Kalamazoo Criminal Justice Council, the Downtown Kiwanis Club of Kalamazoo and is a board member of the Volunteer Center of Greater Kalamazoo. He is also vice-chairman of the Kalamazoo County Democratic Party, among other associations.

He ran as a Democrat for the 6th District U.S. House seat in 2002.

Eh, nothing big here. One of the perks of being the exec is that you get to pick your pals to run things. I'm not really concerned.
