Auburn Hills, MI – There are three candidates on the Nov. 7 ballot for Auburn Hills Library Board’s two partial term seats. Mary Jo Ahern and Beverly A. Miller had both been appointed to the board about a year ago and must run for election to serve out the remaining two years of those terms. They are running on a slate and did their interview together. Sharna Hatcher is also running.
Miller had served two terms ending in 2000 on the Auburn Hills Library Board, and returned when she was asked to be appointed by the board. Her professional background has been as a teacher and a paralegal.
Ahern was a secondary teacher of library sciences who currently serves as the Board Treasurer.
Both candidates talked about their desire to finish the work they have started. Among the accomplishments of the past year have been negotiating their contract with the City of Auburn Hills for leasing the space, strengthening ties with the Friends of the Library, and starting the process of a strategic plan which is expected to be done in 2018.
