L’Anse manager on MML board

La Fave

L’ANSE — L’Anse Village Manager Robert A. La Fave has been selected to serve on the Board of Trustees for the Michigan Municipal League — a statewide organization representing the state’s cities and villages.

La Fave was appointed by the 18-member board in June to fill former Sault Ste. Marie City Manager Oliver Turner’s vacancy. Turner recently moved out of state for a new position in Ohio.

“It is truly an honor to be selected to the board and I will do my best to represent my community and all Upper Peninsula communities,” La Fave said in a press release.

La Fave is the chief administrative officer of the Village of L’Anse, and has 11 years of service to the community.

He holds a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University’s James Madison College and a Master of Public Administration from Grand Valley State University. He also has a Citizen Planner Certification from MSU Extension and is currently a PhD student in Michigan Technological University’s Environmental and Energy Policy Program.
