Lansing Walkway Named For Longtime AG Kelley

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Longtime Michigan Attorney General Frank Kelley says he's extremely honored and humbled to have a pedestrian walkway in Lansing named after him.

The 88-year-old Democrat served as attorney general from 1961 to 1998. His 37-year term is the longest by any state attorney general in U.S. history and earned him the nickname the "eternal general."

The walkway connects the Michigan Capitol building with the Hall of Justice and various state departments. It will be known as the Frank J. Kelley Capitol Walkway after a dedication ceremony on Wednesday.

Gov. Rick Snyder and other dignitaries attended the ribbon cutting with Kelley. Snyder said Kelley was a tireless advocate for consumer and environmental protection whose work has had a lasting impact on Michigan.
