Habermehl withdraws from board nomination

Former Alpena County commissioner Cam Habermehl on Monday withdrew his name from consideration for appointment to a vacant seat on the board.

Habermehl, who lost his seat on the board in last year’s election, made his intent known Monday at the Alpena County Clerk’s Office. He said he doesn’t think he has the support of the board for the appointment.

The seat is vacant after former commissioner Kevin Burr stepped down to pursue a new career opportunity.

Commissioners meet today and are expected to choose between Marty Thompson and Leanne Bloom to fill the vacancy.
