GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—The search is about to begin to replace another Kent County commissioner.
Sandi Frost Steensma will officially resign from her post on Saturday, Feb. 1. Steensma began serving on the Board of Commissioners seven years ago. She was re-elected three times to represent District 5, which covers Bowne Township, Cascade Township, Lowell Township and a part of Caledonia Township.
“Commissioner Steensma has operated in a bi-partisan manner in the commission chambers,
while working to maintain the county’s balanced budgets and AAA Credit Rating,” said commission chairman Dan Koorndyk of the Kent County Board of Commissioners. “She has shown a passion for the parks and other programs that make Kent County a quality community, and has worked diligently to create a new entity to oversee John Ball Zoo.”
Steensma was recently appointed by Governor Rick Snyder to serve on the Board of Trustees for Lake Superior State University.
