San Carlos native Jennifer Granholm is one of the front runners to be selected by President Obama to fill the upcoming vacancy to be left by current Justice John Paul Stevens. Granholm is currently the Governor of Michigan. She is a graduate of San Carlos High School and a former Miss San Carlos.
In Granholm’s favor is the fact that she is not currently residing on a bench, either on the State level or the U.S. Court Appeals. Her non-judicial background makes her appealing for many in Congress. Not in her favor is the fact that she was in charge in Michigan when the economy went south, quickly.
A selection is expected in the upcoming weeks.
