MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) -- Bob Mullins, who worked 10 years in the top professional administrative position for the Village of Machesney Park, today announced his candidacy for Village President at a celebration event attended by friends, supporters, family, elected officials, and residents.
“The past several years have been challenging, and it’s clear this community needs strong leadership to achieve its potential,” Mullins says. “I, along with many others, have worked hard to achieve the economic results we see today, but there is so much more to do, and we have to continue moving forward,” he added.
Mullins, who retired as Village Administrator in spring 2011, says he is coming “back for the future” and running for President to provide strong leadership, re-establish regional cooperation, energize job creation efforts, and run the village like a business to restore pride and confidence in the community.
The general election is Tuesday, April 9, 2013.
