Racine Mayor Resigns, Leads Great Lakes Group

26-Jun-2017

John Dickert, mayor of Racine, Wisconsin, will step down from his position later this year to lead the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative — a group of city leaders working to “restore and protect” the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. Dickert will be the Cities Initiative’s new president and chief administrative officer, succeeding David Ullrich, who will step down from his position this summer as executive director after 14 years. Dickert has been on the board of the Cities Initiative since 2010 and served as chair from 2014 to 2015.

“The work of the Cities Initiative is vital to the health and protection of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River,” says Dickert. “I am thrilled to step into this position with the Cities Initiative and work with a dynamic coalition of 128 other mayors to ensure the voice of local government is a part of Great Lakes and St. Lawrence decision making.”
