Michigan’s self-described “Tough Nerd” has landed a new job.
Rick Snyder left the Governor’s office seven months ago, and on July 1 he became a senior research fellow at Harvard. He’s now a fellow at the the university’s Taubman Center for State and Local Government, part of Harvard’s Kennedy School.
The school cited his guidance of Detroit’s bankruptcy, the largest municipal case of its kind in American history, as one of the accomplishments that led to his appointment.
Snyder, who served two terms in office, never held office anywhere before he was elected governor.
