During special elections held April 25 at the Michigan Counties Legislative Conference, county commissioners elected five new members to the Michigan Association of Counties (MAC) Board of Directors.

The newest members of the 16-member governing body are:

  • Dwight Washington of Clinton County
  • Donald O’Farrell of Iosco County
  • Sarah Lucido of Macomb County
  • Bryan Kolk of Newaygo County
  • Rick Shaffer of St. Joseph County

The five fill seats that had been vacant since the end of 2022.

After they were sworn in on April 26, the five participated in a vote to name Melissa Daub of Wayne County as the MAC Second Vice President. Daub joined the MAC Board in 2021.

Also serving as officers for the Board in MAC’s 125th Anniversary year are President Stan Ponstein of Kent County and First Vice President Jim Storey of Allegan County.

“It’s wonderful to have the Board back to full strength, since it plays a central role in the overall direction of our member association and in the development of our public policy positions” said Stephan W. Currie, MAC’s executive director.
