Badder named to fill vacancy on Imlay City Commission

Brian Badder Brian Badder IMLAY CITY — The ranks of the Imlay City Commission will be full again when the commission meets at 7 p.m. Feb. 19 at City Hall, 150 N. Main Street.

The commission voted 4-2 Tuesday night, with commission members Greg Dennis and Walt Bargen dissenting, to name Brian Badder, 29, to fill the seat vacated by Arlan Winslow in December.

Badder, a life-long Imlay City resident and a custodian for Imlay City Community Schools, came in seventh in an eight-candidate race for four seats on the city commission in May 2011. Two months later city commission members accepted Mayor Margaret Guerrero’s recommendation to have Badder fill out the remainder of the Zoning Board of Appeals term vacated by Don Richards.

Commission member Tim Kaiser, who was appointed to the commission following the resignation of Mayor Pro-Tem J. Rodney Warner in Sept. 2011, nominated Badder.

Noting that Badder works for the school district, Kaiser suggested Badder would have a better understanding of the problems facing city employees.

Citing family commitments in Florida, Winslow resigned from the commission just 19 months into a four year term.

Badder, who collected 65 votes, coming in behind Earl Gass with 79 votes in the 2011 election, will fill out the rest of Winslow’s term which runs through 2015.
