On August 20th, John Hieftje announced his intention to appoint Albert McWilliams to replace Newcombe Clark on the Board of the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority. McWilliams, who works for Quack Media, is in his 30s and a self-styled joker. However, several City Council members said they found McWilliams’s sense of humor and jokes offensive and, frankly, degrading to women. In proposing the appointment, Hieftje told Council members: “He’s on Main Street. I heard good reviews of him down there. He’s also another entrepreneur and someone who has a cutting-edge business. He wants to make downtown a place that can attract the talented people he needs to run his business.” McWilliams (pictured below), Hieftje said, cares deeply about Ann Arbor.
McWilliams has his own website.
