Sheriff Michael Main

IMG 0211

Hello my name is Michael Main, On February 29, 2016, I became the 42nd Sheriff for Isabella County. I was appointed to the position after the former Sheriff resigned. The appointment process required written intent to become Sheriff, resume and a presentation from each candidate. I was very fortunate to have been selected by the panel, who by statute was required to choose the next Sheriff. The appointment is for the remaining of the four-year term, which will be completed on December 31, 2016.
