Lansing Mayor Andy Schor has appointed Judy Kehler to serve as the city’s treasurer and income tax administrator beginning later this month.
Kehler was the first woman and African American to serve in that position under former Mayor David Hollister from 1993 to 1996.
“Kehler is an exceptional talent and it is an honor to welcome her back,” Schor said in a release.
The mayor’s announcement said Kehler, director of corporate partnership for WKAR, brings more than 20 years of public and private sector experience with budgeting, taxation, public policy and executive management.
Finance Director Angie Bennett has been doubling as acting treasurer and income tax administrator since Schor took office. The position, however, has been vacant since Jan. 1. Kehler is the first to assume the permanent role under Schor.
“Schor has a great plan and vision for the capital city and I am thrilled to be a part of his team,” Kehler said.
Kehler starts April 22. A University of Michigan graduate, she is completing her business process management certificate through a program at Michigan State University’s College of Business.
