LaFoille resigns from MAC Board

LafoilleDan LaFoille has resigned as the Region 1 director for the MAC Board, citing health concerns. LaFoille, who is also stepping down from the Schoolcraft County Board of Commissioners, has been a staunch advocate of the Upper Peninsula and of local government in our state since joining the MAC Board in 2013.

"Dan was an excellent board member," said Timothy K. McGuire, MAC's executive director. "He was diligent, collegial and knowledgeable. His efforts to resolve the UP's electric power crisis and his ongoing work to help spur economic development are a great credit to him and to Schoolcraft County. His counsel and service will be sorely missed."

LaFoille's replacement as Region 1 director will be selected by the MAC membership at the Annual Conference, Sept. 20-22 at the Grand Traverse Resort.
