RE: E-M:/ Sen. Joe Mack -- Dead at 85

Enviro-Mich message from "Trigger, Grant R." <GTrigger@honigman.com>

You may be correct on both points I meant to characterize Joe's battles

"re-assignment"  In those days it was mostly about seniority

No, Grant,  John Engler is unquestionably "Michigan's James Watt"

And it wasn't MUCC and Tom Washington that got Joe Mack ousted from the
Senate Conservation Committee......

....It was UAW International Union power that finally clipped Mack's
wings and got him off of the Conservation Committee and replaced him
with Sen. John Hertel
