Ann Arbor

Jen Eyer, the new District 9 commissioner and Ann Arbor representative, speaks to current commissioners about her qualifications at a meeting of Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners at the Washtenaw County Administration building on Thursday.

On Thursday evening, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners unanimously appointed and swore in Ann Arbor publicist Jen Eyer, previously Mlive Media Group director, to fill a vacant interim position on the board.

After igniting controversy at Ann Arbor’s Pioneer High School in March for openly carrying a gun to his little sister’s choir concert, Ann Arbor resident Joshua Wade advocated for the right to open carry again by suing the University for restrictions on bearing arms on campus.
