LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of MaryAnn Sarosi, of Ann Arbor, to the Committee on Juvenile Justice.

Created by Executive Order 2012-1, the 15-member committee advises the governor on juvenile justice issues and guides effective implementation of juvenile justice policies and programs.

"Stronger families, healthier youth, and safer communities in our state are always a priority and I am confident MaryAnn will help promote these ideals through her service on the committee,” Snyder said.

Sarosi most recently served as the strategic outreach attorney for the Youth Mitigation Access Committee and as special assistant to the executive director for legal services of South Central Michigan. Sarosi previously owned the Sarosi Group and was the assistant dean for public service for the office of public service at the University of Michigan Law School. Sarosi earned a bachelor’s degree in history and a law degree from the University of Michigan. She represents law enforcement and juvenile justice agencies, which may include state or local police, the local sheriff's department, juvenile and family court judges, prosecutors, counsel for children and youth, and probation workers and replaces Dorene Allen.

Sarosi will serve a three-year term expiring Dec. 31, 2017. Her appointment is not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
