Susan Mulligan was appointed as the chairperson of the Ottawa County Democratic Central Committee at the Ottawa Democrats March monthly meeting.
Mulligan replaces outgoing chair Jodi Regal, who also currently serves as Ottawa County Auditor. Regal and Mulligan have served as officers of the Central Committee since 2006. Regal cited a recent increase in family responsibilities as her reason for giving up the post.
The Ottawa County Democratic Central and Executive Committees meet the third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. in the activities room at the Riverview Nursing Home (just east of Oak Harbor on SR 105). Meetings are open to the public. Interested Democrats are encouraged to attend.
