Land Bank Job Up for Grabs

Eight candidates are now vying to replace Dan Kildee as county treasurer and chair of the Land Bank. The job pays $82,749.

Ron Fonger of The Flint Journal reports:
A committee of county Chief Probate Judge Jennie E. Barkey, Clerk Michael J. Carr and Prosecutor David Leyton is scheduled to meet Wednesday to decide weather to immediately select a replacement for Kildee or whether to conduct interviews before making their decision.

  1. I would apply but the record of the County appointment committee isn't really that good. Robert J. Pickell was pick supposedly as he was the ousted Sherrif's friend but most of his pervious work experience is as a CIA intergator. Select the Drain Commissioner's successor based on the deceased Drain Commissioner that his son-in-law be selected, sorry we are not a feudal government system.
    Took 2 elections to turn him out and place the previous deputy Drain Commissioner into office.

    Second they can seem to figure out that a judge shouldn't be sitting on an executive function committee. This committee is strangely enough just one position (Probate Judge instead of the Treasurer) from the election commission which approves recall election language.

    At least Carr has figure out -- dispite being the Clerk and only current member sitting through out all the above appointment -- to leave the position vacant to save money and let the deputy treasurer do the job. Of course, the Probate Judge asks for a legal opnion from the County Corp. Counsel? Two lawyers on the committee, one a judge, and they have to ask the County Counsel!!
