Michigan GOP Names New Spokesman

Nowling to become Director of Communications & Research.

LANSING – Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saulius “Saul” Anuzis today announced that Lansing veteran William Nowling is coming on board as party spokesman and will head up the party’s communications and research efforts through the 2008 election cycle. Nowling begins his new position August 13 and replaces Sarah Anderson, who is stepping down to pursue other interests after more than two years in the post.

“We’re excited that Bill is joining our team and will be leading our communications and research efforts to even higher levels,” Anuzis said. “Bill is an excellent communicator and strategist, and I am confident he will be a strong voice for the Michigan Republican Party as it heads into next year’s crucial elections.”

Nowling, 41, currently is director of media relations for the Sterling Corporation, a Lansing-based political and public relations consultancy. A former newspaper reporter in Minnesota and North Dakota, the Ypsilanti native is a veteran of the Lansing political scene, serving most recently as press secretary for former Senate Majority Leader Ken Sikkema. He also was deputy speechwriter for former Gov. John M. Engler. Nowling resides in Brighton, Michigan, with wife and two children

Congrats, Bill!

And props to the MRP... they're obviously taking the blogosphere and the growing online community of conservatives seriously.

They just picked one of our own to head up their communications efforts. Does interest get much more serious?
