Thirteen candidates apply for District 4 seat


with Kent County Board of Commissioners

 

Thirteen candidates applied by the 5 p.m. Monday deadline for Kent County District 4 seat, vacated January 1, 2014, by former Commissioner Gary Rolls. District 4 covers the city of Lowell, Cannon Township, Grattan Township, Oakfield Township and Vergennes Township.

“We are fortunate to have received so many applications for this position,” said Dan Koorndyk, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners. “The next step is for our Executive Committee to narrow that list down to the top three candidates.”

At least three candidates will be interviewed, by the Executive Committee, on January 16, 2014, during a special meeting at 4:30 p.m. This meeting will be open to the public. The Executive Committee will meet again January 23, 2014, at 7:30 a.m. to recommend the person they have selected to the full Board of Commissioners that same morning.

The Board of Commissioners has until February 1, 2014 to make an appointment for the seat. The person selected will serve a term, which runs through December 2014.

Rolls resigned his seat after being charged with four counts of first-degree criminal conduct, three involving a child, and one involving a victim at age 17.
