DDA Member Reappointed Over Dissent

At its Sept. 6, 2011 meeting, the Ann Arbor city council voted to reappoint Joan Lowenstein and John Mouat to the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority board and to appoint Nader Nassif.

The vote on the three appointments was separate and done in roll call fashion for each nominee at the request of Stephen Kunselman (Ward 3). The votes on the appointments of Mouat and Nassif were unanimous. However, Kunselman voted against the reappointment of Lowenstein. All other councilmembers present voted for her.

This brief was filed from the city council’s chambers on the second floor of city hall, located at 301 E. Huron. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
