Newsmaker Wednesday: Getting To Know Meekhof As Majority Leader

Senate Majority Leader-elect Arlan Meekhof

Ask Senate Majority Leader-elect Arlan Meekhof to describe himself, and he will tell you he considers himself approachable despite "being an introvert." Ask others about that self-proclaimed title, and they'll tell you he's anything but.

"I don't know if I would refer to him as an introvert," Sen. Mike Kowall (R-White Lake Township) said. "I think a lot of times he's just sitting back and looking at what other people are doing. I would describe as being a very thoughtful person.
