Scenes from the MCCG Annual Meeting

Thank you to Mayor Pro Tem Mike Turner and the City of Woodstock for hosting the MCCG Annual Meeting on May 27.  The meeting was an opportunity to thank our Committee members, discuss the events of the past year and officially approve the 2015-2017 MCCG Officers. 

 The MCCG also thanked outgoing officers, Vice-President Sue Low, Mayor, City of McHenry; Secretary Jay Nolan, Mayor, City of Harvard; MCCG Legislative Committee Chairwoman Erin Smith, President, Village of Lakewood and Mayors Caucus Chairman Brian Sager, Mayor, City of Woodstock.  We greatly appreciate all they have done for the past two years.    

In turn, we welcomed new officers, Cary Mayor Mark Kownick as the MCCG Vice-President and Marengo Mayor Donald Lockhart as the MCCG Secretary.   President Peter Koenig from the Village of Richmond will serve as the Legislative Committee Chairman and President Bob Nunmaker from the Village of Fox River Grove will serve as the new Mayors Caucus Chairman.  Thank you!
