A fired employee from Grand Traverse County has been offered the position of Emmet County administrator. Jennifer DeHaan served as deputy administrator for Grand Traverse County until the county's new administrator, Vicki Uppal, asked her to resign or be fired for “poor performance.”
DeHaan refused to resign, saying the county's issues with her were political and not about performance. She was fired last month.
Commissioners voted 5–2 to offer DeHaan the administrator position last Thursday.
