LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Michelle Stevenson, of Houghton Lake, to the Electronic Recording Commission.

Created in 2010 and housed within the Department of Technology, Management and Budget, the commission establishes standards and practices so that county registers of deeds are consistent with the standards and practices of offices in other jurisdictions.

“I thank Michelle for her willingness to serve on this commission,” Snyder said.

Stevenson has been county clerk and register of deeds for Roscommon County since 2013. Previously, she served as deputy clerk for Roscommon Township. She also has experience as a bank teller and a substitute teacher. Stevenson holds an associate degree from the University of Maryland University College. She will replace Linda Landheer, who resigned, and represents county registers of deeds.

Stevenson will serve the remainder of a two-year term expiring Jan. 1, 2015. Her appointment is not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
