Sarpy County Election Commissioner Michelle Y. Andahl has appointed Michelle Boyland to the office of Chief Deputy Election Commissioner.
Boyland is taking over for Deb Davis, who retired July 1, after 10 years of service. Boyland will serve for the remainder of Davis’s 4-year term, which ends Dec. 31, 2021.
“I cannot thank Deb Davis enough for her service over the last 10 years, and I wish her to the best in her retirement.” Election Commissioner Andahl said.
By state statute, the Election Commissioner must appoint a Chief Deputy from a different political party. Andahl, who was appointed by Gov. Pete Ricketts, is a Republican. Both the Democratic and Libertarian parties submitted candidates for the position.
Boyland, a Democrat from Bellevue, was sworn in July 6.
