Craig Mauger is leaving MIRS to head the Michigan Campaign Finance Network.

According to Interlochen Public Radio:

"A group that monitors the flow of money in Michigan politics has a new leader. Rich Robinson, former head of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, has announced that Lansing reporter Craig Mauger is succeeding him.

Mauger has been a reporter with the Michigan Information and Research Service since 2012.
Rich Robinson led the Michigan Campaign Finance Network for 15 years.

Robinson spoke with IPR News Radio's David Cassleman about the current state of campaign finance regulation in Michigan.

"We're in a process, much like the federal process, of deregulating campaign finance to a pretty significant degree," says Robinson."

Another notable change? MLive political reporter  Jonathan Oosting has been scooped up by The Detroit News.


Brandon Hall is a lifelong political nerd from Grand Haven, and is the Managing Editor of West Michigan Politics.
