Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Thomas C. Cameron and 52-1 Novi District Judge Travis Reeds administered the oaths of office to new Supervisor Mark Abbo, who previously held the post from 2000-2012. Prior to that time, Abbo served as a township trustee for eight years. Since then, he has worked as the chief financial officer for Wayne County and as fiscal director for the Wayne County Commission.

New treasurer is Jason Rhines who owned a building restoration company for 25 years, and is a licensed residential builder. He graduated from Schoolcraft College and participated in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses entrepreneurship program with curriculum designed by Babson College. He previously served on a non-profit board, raising funds for various charities. Reeds is a longtime friend of Rhines and wanted to personally administer the oath of office to him.
