Leigh Greden says his focus is on working for the Congressman, and not whether he'd stay on with Dingell's wife, Debbie, if she's successful in her 12th district Congressional bid.  Greden says he loves working for EMU, but couldn't pass up the chance to work for a man he calls "a living legend."  Greden will remain with the university through mid July, giving EMU time to work on the process of identifying his replacement.
