State Rep. Ann Bollin, who in August called on the governor to remove Liza Estlund Olson, acting director of the troubled Unemployment Insurance Agency, today released the following statement after a new director was named:
“After months of inaction, the governor has finally responded to the problems that have plagued the state’s unemployment agency and caused unnecessary hardship for so many Michigan families.
“When the former director, Steve Gray, resigned suddenly last year, acting director Liza Estlund Olson promised to get things back on track – but things are still a disaster.
