RACINE — Racine's mayor is
leaving his job to head a coalition aimed at protecting the
Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.
Mayor John Dickert announced
Monday that he will leave this summer to become the
administrative president of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence
Cities Initiative. The group of mayors and local officials
from 128 cities in the U.S. and Canada work with local
government and other stakeholders to sustain the freshwater
resource. The city of Racine, along Lake Michigan, is a member
of the initiative.
Details on the process to fill
the mayor's job will be determined by the Common Council.
