City Officials in East Jordan voted to add a student position to their Downtown Development Authority Board Monday. Boyne City Library also decided to join, voting Tuesday to add a student position to their own board. 


Each position has the responsibilities of a regular board member without the weight of a vote. 

 

15-year-old Liam Dreyer is the founder of Government for Tomorrow. He brought the idea to the boards after spending the last year as the youngest DDA board member in the state. 

 

He sat down with IPR’s Kendra Carr to talk about their search for interested students and how he got involved in local government.
