"I look forward to working with local government officials to promote solutions for prosperity in our region."
This isn't the first time Vosburg has served in a leadership position; from 2011-12 she was Chair of the Macomb County Board of Commissioners. Vosburg was both the first chair under the new form of government and the first Republican chair. Currently she serves as the Chair of the Justice and Public Safety Committee and was previously the Chair of the Economic Development Committee for the Board.
"We are proud to have Kathy represent us at a regional level," said Board Chair Dave Flynn. "Through her strong sense of leadership, determination and commitment to public service it is no surprise Kathy has been elected as the Chair of SEMCOG."
In addition to serving the public, Vosburg is a certified tax professional and owns an income tax consulting firm. She holds a bachelor's degree in business administration and an associate's degree in accounting from the Detroit Business College, now known as Davenport University.
SEMCOG is an organization that was created to solve regional challenges faced by the residents of the seven-county region.
