Oakland County Board of Commissioners’ Chairman Michael J. Gingell announces that the Board will fill the commission seat in District 15, no later than 30 days from the formal resignation of current Commissioner Jeff Matis. Matis was recently appointed as a judge to the Oakland County Sixth Judicial Circuit Court by Governor Rick Snyder.

The Board of Commissioners will receive applications for the vacant commission seat representing the communities of the City of Rochester and a large portion of the City of Rochester Hills from Tuesday, November 3, 2015 through Friday, November 13, 2015.

Residents living in any portion of District 15, who are interested in completing the remainder of the commission term ending on December 31, 2016, should complete an application and send their qualifications to the attention of Oakland County Board of Commissioners’ Chairman Michael J. Gingell. Please mail information to the Oakland County Board of Commissioners, located at 1200 North Telegraph Road in Pontiac, Michigan 48341.
