Megan Brown, Deputy Press Secretary to Governor Jennifer Granholm told the Independent Wednesday that the Governor will not be attending the Standish Maximum Correctional Facility closure press conference on Friday.
"She is not attending the Standish event," Brown said. "She had previously scheduled events with Vice President Joe Biden for economic recovery."
Brown added the event with Biden is in Kalamazoo on Friday.
The press conference regarding the prison closing is at the Resurrection of the Lord Catholic Church in Standish on Friday, at 11 a.m.
The Independent is awaiting an announcement on whether or not a representative from the Governor's office will attend.
