ANN ARBOR – Jim Toy Community Center board member Jason Morgan has announced that he will run for the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners seat that will be vacated by Yousef Rabhi in 2016.
Morgan is currently working as the director of government and media relations for Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor. He served as district representative for former Rep. John Dingell, worked on former Rep. Bart Stupak’s congressional campaign staff, served as legislative aide to State Senate Minority Leader Mike Prusi and worked as assistant and scheduler to Stupak in Washington D.C.
“If elected, I will support a strong public safety and human services system, strengthen our local economy by creating living wage jobs and support investing in our infrastructure and neighborhoods,” Morgan said in a statement.
Morgan is also focused on community mental health budget and structure as well as housing concerns in the county. His name will first appear on the ballots in the Democratic primary set for Aug. 2, 2016.
The county’s 8th District seat covers most of downtown Ann Arbor, the Georgetown neighborhood, Burns Park and some areas south of I-94.
So far with less than a year to go, Morgan has been endorsed by Ann Arbor Mayor Christopher Taylor, Washtenaw County Board chair Felicia Brabec, State Rep. Adam Zemke and State Board of Education President John Austin.
