Jill Sutton, Executive Director of Mid Michigan Community Action, believes in a world where everyone has access to basic human needs. Her efforts to advocate in the community have not gone unnoticed, as she was reappointed by Gov. Rick Snyder to serve on the Commission on Community Action and Economic Opportunity.
Sutton will continue serving as Executive Director of Mid Michigan Community Action Agency. In addition to that, she will also continue work on the state level to represent Community Action Agencies within the Commission on Community Action and Economic Opportunity. In this role, she will aid in reducing the causes, conditions, and effects of poverty and promoting social and economic opportunities that foster self-sufficiency for low-income people. Her three-year term on the commission will expire June 21, 2017.
“It’s an honor to continue serving on the Commission on Community Action and Economic Opportunity,” Sutton said. “Alleviating the effects of poverty is a cause I have dedicated my career to, and I’ll continue to advocate for the less fortunate on both the local and state levels.”
In addition to Sutton’s appointment, nine local leaders were selected to join the Commission.
“I appreciate this talented and diverse group of appointees and I look forward to their work,” Snyder said.
Mid Michigan Community Action Agency is a non-profit, human services agency serving Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Mecosta, Midland and Osceola Counties since 1966.
