I came to town in 1975 when I joined the police department. I fell in love with the town and it’s residents. Marseilles is a great place to visit and a better place to live.
Marseilles has a natural beauty with the Illinois river to the south and the city’s historic bluff to the north. Marseilles previously has been listed as one of the safest cities. I love the residents of Marseilles whom always come together when a neighbor is in need. I have seen the city unite in the aftermath of floods, storms and other natural disasters like no other. We have great people that support each other. We have a wonderful police, fire and emergency medical services second to none. I hope for Marseilles continues with controlled growth which extending the sewer and water to Interstate 80 will certainly be a benefit. As Mayor I am “focused on our future”. I want to thank the residents of the community for their continued support of the city council. I also want to thank all of our boards and organizations that are the backbone of the community and continue to strive and help the city work towards our goals and objectives.
