Northville Township names new clerk in wake of Lundberg’s resignation
There are changes coming to Northville Township’s Board of Trustees. The names and faces will stay the same, however, two titles will change.
On Thursday, Feb. 16, the Board of Trustees (BoT) accepted the resignation of Roger Lundberg, and appointed Trustee Cynthia Jankowski to serve as his replacement. Clerk Lundberg is stepping down from his full-time position to
spend more time with his wife, Jeanne, his two children and three grandchildren.
In addition, the BoT appointed Clerk Lundberg to fill the vacancy thus created by Trustee Jankowski’s appointment to the clerk position.
“Residents will see the same faces in slightly different places,” said Northville Township Supervisor Mark J. Abbo. “This gives the Township the important continuity that the clerk position demands, while also respecting the voice of the voters from the 2020 election.”
These changes take effect March 16.
New clerk brings stellar credentials to job
“It was an honor and pleasure to be elected to the Office of Township Clerk,” said Lundberg. “I have thoroughly enjoyed the past two years working for you and look forward to serving as Trustee. As Trustee, I do plan to stay actively involved in Legacy Park’s development, our Pathways Committee and other Township activities.”
During his tenure as Clerk, Lundberg upgraded the video surveillance monitoring of the election Drop Box; introduced a first-ever spring Shred-It event for residents while retaining the fall Shred-It event; added an electronic document
management system to store documents as part of the Office’s records management responsibility; and facilitated a quarterly HOA forum, among other accomplishments.
Jankowski has long been civic minded. She served on the Northville Board of Education for nine years, with three terms as president. In 2020, she was elected to the BoT, and has proudly served on the Senior Advisory Commission and
Northville Youth Network Committee. She also is a leasing coordinator for a local developer and a 15-year paralegal, who has successfully negotiated and interpreted contracts to secure her clients interest.
“It has been a pleasure working with Roger, and I am excited to have the opportunity to follow in his footsteps,” Trustee Jankowski said. “With the passage of Proposal 2 last year, there will be a lot of changes in election law. I am looking
forward to the opportunity to ensure that every vote is counted, and that our elections are safe and secure.”
