Guenzel To Be Tapped as Ann Arbor DDA Chair

At its Sept. 7, 2011 meeting, the board of the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority will consider a resolution that names Bob Guenzel as board chair and Leah Gunn as vice chair.

The board is currently without a chair, because board member Gary Boren, who had been elected to that post by his board colleagues at their July 6, 2011 meeting, was not nominated by mayor John Hieftje for re-appointment to the board. Boren was replaced on the board by local attorney Nader Nassif.

Guenzel, who retired last year as Washtenaw County administrator, was elected vice chair of the board at the July meeting and, according to the bylaws, would perform all the duties of the chair. Gunn currently serves on the Washtenaw County board of commissioners.
