Washtenaw: County Board

Heritage Newspapers reports that Adam Zemke, a 27-year-old mechanical engineer, will be running as a Democrat for the District 1 seat on the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners. The seat, representing the northwestern part of the county, is held by Republican Mark Ouimet, who’s running for state representative. Says Zemke: “I would like to continue Mark’s work. Often I hear people tell me, ‘Mark is everywhere.’ That is what a good public servant should be doing. You can’t make effective decisions without talking with the people you represent.” [Source]
