LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of James Stewart of Dimondale to the State Boundary Commission. 

The commission settles boundary issues between townships and municipalities and recommends approval or denial of petitions to alter boundaries.

"James' extensive experience will serve the commission and Michigan communities well," Snyder said.

Stewart is retired after serving 22 years as the Eaton County controller. He previously served as the Eaton County human resources director and worked as a fact finder and arbitrator for the Michigan Employment Relations Commission. Stewart earned a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from the former General Motors Institute and a master's degree in labor and industrial relations from Michigan State University.

Stewart will serve a three-year term expiring Nov. 15, 2014, and replaces Kenneth Verburg. The term begins Nov. 16 and his appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
