Bulger appointed to Ludington council.

LUDINGTON — During the recent Ludington City Council meeting, Monday, June 28, the council appointed Jack Bulger as the new sixth ward councilor. Bulger replaces David Bourgette, who resigned because he has moved out of the city. Bulger, an attorney, currently works as a family court referee for Mason County. He previously served as an assistant prosecutor for the Mason County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and had a private practice prior to that.

The council interviewed four candidates and nominated Bulger and Karen Nielsen, who had previously served as chair of Ludington Mass Transit Authority. The council vote was split on the two candidates. Councilors Les Johnson, Wally Cain and John Terzano voted for Bulger while councilors Kathy Winczeski, Cheri Stibitz, and Ted May voted for Nielsen. Mayor Steve Miller cast the tie-breaking vote for Bulger.

Bourgette was initially appointed to the council in 2017, filling a vacancy left by Gary Castonia, who had been appointed to the Mason County Board of Commissioners. Bourgette and his wife, Dawn, were owners of Viking Arms Inn on Ludington Avenue and recently sold the business. They plan to continue to reside in Mason County.
