Attention Lenawee, Monroe and Wayne County (District H) lawyers: This year four attorneys are running for three seats on the State Bar of Michigan Board of Commissioners. That means your vote matters more than ever in this race. You should have received an electronic ballot for the 2017 SBM elections via e-mail. If you don't have an e-mail address on file, you will receive a paper ballot. You have until 11:59 p.m. on June 15 to cast your votes (or get your ballot in the mail to be counted).
The District H Board candidates are James Heath, of Detroit, who serves as the city of Detroit's first ever inspector general, responsible for fulfilling the office's mission of "ensuring honesty and integrity in city government by rooting out waste, abuse, fraud and corruption;" Mark Koroi, of Plymouth, a general practitioner with a focus on litigation; Hon. David Perkins, of Detroit, a 36th District Court judge; and Gergory Ulrich, of Grosse Pointe Woods, who runs a law practice with a focus on business law, real estate law, finance, technology and litigation.
