“Holly has been a great asset, and Newaygo County is losing a dedicated professional.” said Senator Bumstead.
And while her time in the Treasurer’s Office will come to an end on December 31, Ms. Moon will continue to serve the community on a number of boards and committees while having more time to pursue personal interests including summers spent relaxing on the shores of Silver Lake with her husband Joe and their family.
