Eagle Township (Clinton Co.) Supervisor Patti Jo Schafer will continue to serve the Michigan Townships Association (MTA) Board of Directors, after being re-elected District 20 director at the Association’s Annual Educational Conference & Expo, held April 25-28 in Lansing.
Schafer was re-elected by her township peers at a caucus election to her role as director of MTA District 20, which includes Eaton, Clinton and Ingham Counties. She has served on the MTA Board since 2013.
Schafer was elected township supervisor in 2008, and previously served as treasurer for 12 years. She is president of the Clinton County MTA Chapter, and president of the Grand Ledge Bullpen Association.
She values being part of township government, where residents turn for help and advice, and being able to assist them in solving issues. “I love being involved in local government, and the feeling of satisfaction after helping residents with an issue or concern,” she said.
She will continue to bring that commitment to the MTA Board as well. “I hope to continue working together with other Board members to share the many benefits MTA has to offer for township officials by bringing my perspective and insights, as the MTA Board continues to listen to the members and work hard on the current and future issues most important to the success and sustainability of townships,” she added.
