Mary Segalin, Ironwood Charter Township (Gogebic Co.) clerk, has been re-elected to her role as District 1 director on the Michigan Townships Association (MTA) Board of Directors. District 1 encompasses Gogebic, Houghton, Keweenaw and Ontonagon Counties. Segalin was re-elected to the position by her township peers at the Association’s Annual Conference, held April 25-28 in Lansing.
A life-long resident of Ironwood Charter Township, Segalin has been involved in her township government for more than 30 years. She was deputy treasurer/secretary for five years, beginning in 1987. In 1992, she was elected township treasurer, a position she also held for five years. She has been clerk since 2015. She has been vice chair of the Gogebic Iron Wastewater Facility for last two years.
Representing a rural area of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Segalin hopes to continue bringing that unique perspective to her role on the MTA Board, and helping to bring resources and information to officials in her region
“As District 1 director, I aim to support officials who do not have the resources to achieve success and stability in their communities,” she said. “I will continue to use my years of experience and deep understanding of township government and politics—and the important role of MTA—to bring this broad and diverse point of view to further contribute to the MTA Board.”
