County Board considers appointing next veterans service officer
Douglas County administration has selected its next veterans service officer.
And next week, the Douglas County Board considers making that appointment official.
Brian Erickson of the town of Superior is Douglas County Administrator Andy Lisak’s nominee for post responsible for serving veterans.
Erickson retired as a veteran with 20 years of military experience in the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Navy Reserve where he achieved the rank of chief petty officer. That experience included project management and various leadership roles, according to a biography compiled by Lisak.
A graduate of Superior Senior High School, Erickson also worked for General Dynamics in Ann Arbor, Mich., for 26 years.
"His good nature and tenacity to see a job through to its completion will make Brian a valuable addition to the Douglas County organization and team," Lisak concluded in the biography.
The board considers the appointment at 6 p.m. Thursday in Room 201 of the Government Center, 1316 N. 14th St.
