Yvonne Bushey Appointed Interim Supervisor for Lake Township

Lake Township, Huron County, Michigan – Ms. Yvonne Bushey was selected as temporary supervisor of Lake township during a packed session at the township hall Monday evening.  Ms. Bushey was among nine nominated candidates looking to fulfill the supervisor vacancy left when Robert T. Smith passed away in June. After two failed nomination motions the four member board voted 3-1 to appoint Bushey on the third round. The township board did not interview any of the candidates prior to the selection. Public comments questioned Yvonne Bushey’s loyalty to Lake Township, since she recently tried to cede her land to adjoining Chandler Township in order to develop wind turbine leases. It is anticipated that Ms.Bushey will file her candidacy for Supervisor as an Independent in the November election.

This latest political drama occurs on the heels of an attempt by 20 landowners of Lake Township holding wind turbine lease agreements to secede from the community. The group approached wind development friendly Chandler Township. However the Chandler board rebuffed the group by voting down their proposal unanimously.

  1. That meeting, where essentially an emergency supervisor was named, was one of the strangest community meetings I’ve ever attended. Slam dunk. The lady who wanted to leave the township gets the nod?


  2. Loyalty is nonexistent or necessary.
    Transparency has no meaning.
    Democratic process as of late is a farce.
    Audiences are mere observes not participants.
    Lets not be naive it’s obvious what this is all about.
    I don’t believe I have to spell it out
