MONTGOMERY — State Rep. Kay Hatcher offered a surprise tribute to Mayor Marilyn Michelini this week.
Hatcher asked Michelini for time to speak at Monday’s Village Board meeting regarding legislative issues in Springfield.
And then she presented a House motion honoring Michelini, who is retiring after 25 years of public service in the Fox Valley.
“It is not that often that someone gives us as many years of public service as our mayor has. I have offered a House resolution honoring Mayor Michelini,” Hatcher said.
Also recognized was the Marine Corps Reserve, who said more than 51,000 children in DuPage and Kane counties received Christmas presents from the past toy drive.
“We think every child deserves a Christmas,” said Rita O’Reilly with the group.
