LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Aaron Andres, of Marquette, to the Michigan Barrier Free Design Board.

The nine-member board assists the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs with reviewing and processing requests for exceptions to the barrier-free design specifications. It also makes recommendations for barrier-free design rules.

"I appreciate Aaron's willingness to serve and I am confident he will represent Michiganders well in this role," Snyder said.

Andres is a freelance graphic artist with three years of experience in public relations. He previously worked as a website designer for Michigan Technological University. Andres holds an associate degree in graphic design and fine arts from Vincennes University. He will represent the physically limited and replaces James McGaugh.

Andres will serve a three-year term expiring Oct. 31, 2015 and his appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the state Senate.
