BOOHER BANKING BOOYAH! Traverse City Area State Sen. Darwin Booher Pops Political Cherry...AGAIN!



"What kind of man do you take me for?"

"We've already established that. Now we're haggling over the price."






As I imagined the conversation between State Senator Darwin Booher and a lobbyist from the Michigan Bankers Association, your girl Miss Fortune suspected it may have mirrored the infamous dialogue variously attributed to Sir Winston Churchill and Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw.

Booher was a banker for 41 years before he entered the world of politics, working as a sales manager at Citizens Bank and as vice-president of Bank One. Booher was first elected to the Michigan House in 2004 to represent residents of Osceola, Mecosta and Wexford counties. He was elected to the 35th District Senate seat, which includes  Leelanau, Benzie, Kalkaska, Manistee, Missaukee, Roscommon, Lake and Clare counties, in 2010.

It shouldn't surprise you that Booher recently introduced a bill that would reduce Michigan’s post-foreclosure redemption period from 6 months to 2 months. 

But it would surprise even the most jaded politico to find out just how little Lansing's latest rent boy received for selling out his constituents.
