By Beth Milligan | Nov. 30, 2018

Grand Traverse County has a new deputy administrator.

County Administrator Nate Alger announced Thursday that Deputy Civil Counsel Chris Forsyth will now serve as deputy administrator. Forsyth has "significant experience in local government and county government," according to a county release, adding that Alger "previously worked with Chris in his role as the undersheriff and has always been impressed with Chris’ understanding of the law and the manner in which he processes through complex situations."

Prior to Alger's hire as administrator, Alger, Forsyth, and Finance Director Dean Bott jointly served as an interim county administrative team. “During that time, I experienced firsthand Chris’ leadership and work ethic and recognized that he will have a significant impact in Grand Traverse County," says Alger. "I have a high level of trust and confidence in Chris and his experience will be a great addition to the administrative team.”
