Congratulations to the Fiscal Services Team who was honored with the Government Finance Officers Association’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award and the Government Finance Officers Association’s Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. Thank you to the entire Fiscal Services Team who tirelessly works behind the scenes to ensure smooth Ottawa County operations.
Bittersweet sentiments out of the County Clerk’s Office this week. Dan Krueger retired after more than 35 years serving as County Clerk and more recently, Clerk/Register. Krueger was appointed county clerk in 1978 and was elected to the position two years later. Many thanks to Dan for his public service!
Justin Roebuck has been selected to fill the seat vacated by Clerk/Register Dan Krueger and will serve until the next general election in 2016. Roebuck will be sworn in on Monday, June 30, 2014, at 4PM at Grand Haven’s Ottawa County Courthouse, 3rd Floor Courtroom. Roebuck is currently serving as Elections Coordinator in the County Clerk/Register’s Office, where he has been employed since 2009. Prior to his current role, he served as Campaign Manager for Congressman Tim Walberg in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District, and on the executive staff of former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land. He is a lifelong West Michigan resident and currently resides in the City of Zeeland with his wife Laura.
Join the Sheriff’s Office in wishing farewell to Captain Lee Hoeksema after serving for more than 25 years on the force in many roles. Lee will be sorely missed by his colleagues both within the County and among partnering organizations. Best wishes are extended to Lee in all future endeavors!
