first_img HOLLAND – Reps. Daniela García and Jim Lilly today presented a tribute in recognition of the dedication conveyed by retired Ottawa County Commissioner Stu Visser.After three two-year terms serving as an Ottawa County commissioner, Visser retired in December 2016.Stu Visser began his career in public service in 1987 as Park Township supervisor where he committed countless hours to improving the community for its expanding population.  In 2009, Visser stepped down as supervisor with the intention of retiring. That same year, Visser was drawn back to the lure of aiding his community through public service as an Ottawa County commissioner.In his many years of service to the people of Ottawa County, Stu facilitated many worthy endeavors such as increasing waterfront access to the Grand River, expanding public utilities to facilitate a growing population, and doubling the amount of parkland in his township.“Stu’s unwavering commitment to improving our community and serving its inhabitants is inspiring,” said Rep. Lilly. “His example of public service and steadfast leadership in Ottawa County is one I strive to live up to during my time in Lansing.”“The vision Stu set forth to improve Ottawa County will have a resounding impact on the community,” said Rep. García “His legacy as a county commissioner, and previously as Park Township supervisor, will not be forgotten. I know I stand with all Ottawa County residents when I express my deep appreciation of his service and dedication to our community.”Francisco García, who was recently elected to fill Visser’s county commission seat, and Greg DeJong, the Ottawa County Commission chairman, were both in attendance of the commemoration as well.“I have big shoes to fill in serving our community, but I look forward to continuing the strides Stu made on the Board of Commissioners,” said Commissioner García. 10Feb Reps.
