Takes position in northern Michigan
Deputy Supervisor Liz Vogel has accepted the administrator and chief financial officer position for Missaukee County, Michigan, which has offices in Lake City, 45 miles south of Traverse City.
Vogel’s last day with Clinton Township will be Thursday, May 13. She began working for the Township in 2014.
“I wish Liz all the best in this next step of her career,” said Township Supervisor Bob Cannon. “I can still remember meeting her at a Mount Clemens Rotary meeting seven years ago.”
Cannon said he was looking for someone who could work well with employees and cover his needs representing the Township. “I admired her positive outlook and energy, which has served the Township well during her time here,” he said.
Cannon credited Vogel for her role in the development of Clinton Township’s first strategic plan. The endeavor, a deep dive at developing organizational goals for the future, called for dedicating time and resources above and beyond regular job duties.
“Liz’s role was to put together a leadership team, vet, and hire a consultant, organize and galvanize Township leadership to lift the entire process off the ground. Of course, she rose to the challenge. She coordinated numerous meetings with staff and the community, got directors and staff working on the same page,” said Cannon.
“Supervisor Cannon told me working as deputy would be a high risk-high reward job, and it has
been,” said Vogel. “I appreciate all of Bob’s support to advance my career in local government management, including professional development and educational opportunities.”
Vogel led the effort to partner with Macomb County and numerous other agencies during the 2020 Census resulting in the highest population count in the history of Clinton Township.
“My experiences with Clinton Township helped prepare me for the next step in my career, and an opportunity came much sooner than I anticipated,” she said. “I’ll miss the staff I worked closely with, but I’m excited to begin work in Missaukee County.”
