Why Did All 5 of Rockford’s Living Mayors Get Together Today?
Something very special happened at city hall today. All five of Rockford's living mayor's got together today, and it was for more, than just a group photo.
Combined, they represent more than 36 years of leading the city of Rockford. Pictured from L-R are former Rockford Mayors Larry Morrissey, Doug Scott, John McNamara and current Mayor Tom McNamara, and Charles Box.
All five gathered today for a briefing from Rockford Promise on some of its upcoming plans.
• the opportunity for a post-secondary education,
• hope for a career and economic stability,
• a reason for companies to stay or relocate to our community as the pool of potential employees have higher educational achievement, and
• support to regional economic development.
