Jonathan Kinloch, chairman of the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party organization, has been appointed by Mayor Mike Duggan to the Detroit Board of Water Commissioners, the city said Monday.

Kinloch will join the seven-member board for his first meeting as a commissioner on Wednesday.

The board oversees Detroit’s Water and Sewage Department and approves all water and sewer rates.

Kinloch will be replacing Pamela Rodgers, whose decision not to seek re-appointment left an open seat.

Kinloch currently is chairman of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers and sits on both the Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority and Wayne County Economic Development Corporation boards.

Kinloch previously served on the Wayne County Planning and Development Commission, Detroit Board of Zoning Appeals, Detroit Library Commission and the Detroit Board of Education.

Kinloch, a lifelong Detroiter, is president of The Kinloch Group, Inc.— an entertainment media company.

Other Duggan appointees on the Detroit Board of Water Commissioners include Chairman Michael Einheuser, Vice Chair Mary Blackmon, Lane Coleman, John Henry Davis, Linda Forte and Jane Garcia.
