Detroit native Muñoz tapped for Obama post

DETROIT, Nov. 27, 2008 (AP): President-elect Barack Obama has named Cecilia Muñoz, a Detroit native and University of Michigan graduate, as White House director of intergovernmental affairs.

Muñoz currently supervises legislative and advocacy work as a senior vice president at the National Council of La Raza, an advocacy group for Latinos.

Cecilia Muñoz

The Detroit News says Muñoz was born in Detroit in 1962 to immigrant parents from La Paz, Bolivia. The family moved to Michigan so her father, an automotive engineer, could attend the University of Michigan.

While studying at Michigan, she tutored Latino inmates at the state prison in Jackson.
