Alicia Boler-Davis will be coming to mid-Michigan to be the newest plant manager for GM's Lansing Region. The region includes both the Grand River and Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plants.

Currently, Ms. Boler-Davis is plant manager at GM's Arlington, Texas Assembly Plant. That appointment made her the first African-American woman to be appointed to plant manager at a GM vehicle manufacturing plant.

Boler-Davis has been with GM since 1994. She holds a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Northwestern University and a master's degree in Engineering from Ressaelaer Polytechnic Institute.

She will be replacing Randy Thayer, who announced his retirement last week. Thayer is a mid-Michigan native who was made plant manager for Lansing Delta Township Assembly in July, 2003 and got the plant into production. Then he was named manager of Lansing Region last year.

The changes will take effect October 1.

    If auto employees don't take pay cuts from the top down,The auto companies will not do well.Thousands in the making of cars down to the ones who made parts for cars,have no jobs now.Can't find jobs to replace their old jobs.How many times will the gov bail out car companies?After all bailouts that have went out,and if they still can't make enough sales,What will happen?Wages must come down to bring car prices down or the sales won't be enough to keep car companies going.How many cars sold over cash for clunkers and what kind of cars.What company come out ahead.Was it GM?Recycled metal?There should be plenty,the clunkers.Who makes good from them?In many cases the ones that were good shape could of been redone with carbs ect to make them better on gas mileage.They say waste not,want not.Americans are so wasteful.With the gov at the top of the list.Blowing good money after bad ideas,that end up with people paying more in the end.Where's the jobs to keep paying?
