Mansfield named to state townships post

TRAVERSE CITY — The Michigan Township Association elected Union Township Supervisor Doug Mansfield treasurer for its board of directors.

Mansfield has been Union Township supervisor since 1995. He's served on the board for the state association since 2005 and represented township officials in Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau and Manistee counties.

Mansfield has served on the board of the Grand Traverse Rural Fire Department and is the former chairman of the Grand Traverse County Board of Public Works. He recently led efforts by the county's rural townships to thwart an attempt to by the county BPW to impose a $25 per parcel special assessment on septic tank owners to pay for the county's money-losing septage treatment plant.

"During my tenure as MTA treasurer, I hope to continue to forward the mission that individual township government, even in the most rural of areas, plays a vast role in growing the new Michigan economy," Mansfield said in a prepared release.
