Madhu Anderson has joined the Citizens Research Council of Michigan in Livonia as the senior research associate for local affairs.

Anderson is well-known in public policy, state government, nonprofit, and conservancy circles, holding several leadership positions in state government and the nonprofit sector prior to joining the Citizens Research Council.

“We are thrilled to have Madhu join our team of research analysts,” says Eric Lupher, president of the Research Council. “Her depth of experience in Michigan public policy issues is outstanding and we know she will be a huge asset to the non-partisan, facts-based research we produce for the people of Michigan.”

Her expertise is in local and state taxation, government finance, and regulatory policy.  In addition to working on landmark tax, school finance, and pension reforms, she helped Michigan earn a AAA bond rating as chief deputy state treasurer. Under her directorship of CEPI, Michigan became one of the first states to offer web-based performance metrics for school districts.

She also served as a deputy director at the Department of Environmental Quality and at the Michigan Agency for Energy.  Her nonprofit experience includes director of government relations for the Michigan chapter of The Nature Conservancy, and treasurer for a local ceramics cooperative.

Anderson received an AB in political science from the University of California, Berkeley, and earned an MPP from the Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.
