Jeremy Cady, a trustee elected in 2016, was appointed to township clerk during a special board meeting Monday evening.
The position became vacant when former Clerk Kathleen Van Wasshnova retired from office citing personal reasons during the March 28 board meeting.
Cady will serve in the full time position until the 2018 election.
“I want to thank the Board of Trustees for appointing me Township Clerk until the November election. I am humbled and grateful to have my peers think highly enough of me to consider me for the vacancy,” Cady said in a Facebook post.
“I have to thank retired Clerk Van Wasshnova for having the Clerks office completely setup for a smooth transition of power, regardless of who was selected to fill in. What an amazing thing to do when you don’t have to. Such a great show of character on her part. You have done tremendous things for our Township.”
Three other Huron Township residents applied for the position.
