Village of Jordan welcomes two trustee-elects

Ferris said it felt "a little weird, but exciting too!" to be elected to the position.

"I'm excited to be given the opportunity to positively contribute toward the future of this historic village," Ferris said. Like Milton, this is Ferris's first position in local government.

"If you asked me five years ago when I moved to Jordan whether I could see myself serving in local government, my answer would have been 'that's not for me,'" she said.

But since then, she's become more involved in the community. For the last three years she has served on the village of Jordan Citizen's Review Committee and last year served on Jordan's 175th Anniversary Committee.

"Through those experiences, I realized that I have a deep interest in the Jordan community today and what the future holds for the village," Ferris said.

Jordan Mayor Dick Platten said he looks forward to working with the new trustees. "They will bring hopefully some new ideas and some additional energy," Platten said. "We'll have a very good board to work with."

Trustee Lee Badman was re-elected to another four-year term, as was village justice Michael Weir, both with 46 votes. All positions on the ballot were uncontested.
