LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the reappointment of Dennis Schornack, of Williamston, to the state Boundary Commission.

Housed within the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, the commission considers petitions at adjudicative sessions and public hearings, and evaluates statutory criteria and evidence submitted on the record. The three-member board has the authority to recommend approval or denial of a petition.

“I thank Dennis for his willingness to continue serving in this important role,” Snyder said.

Schornack is a senior strategic policy adviser in the Snyder administration. He was formerly executive director of the Michigan Recreation and Park Association, chairman of the International Boundary Commission between the United States and Canada and spent 12 years as a senior policy adviser for Gov. John Engler. Schornack also has experience with the Michigan House of Representatives and the Michigan Senate. He has a bachelor’s degree in biology, a bachelor’s degree in speech and hearing science and a master’s degree, all from Michigan State University. He also has a master’s in public health from the University of Michigan.

Schornack will serve a three-year term expiring Nov. 15, 2016, and his appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the state Senate.
