Macomb, IL – Rich Egger's guest is Macomb Mayor Mick Wisslead, who steps down Monday (May 2) after two terms in office.
Wisslead was elected in February 2003. He earned more than 60% of the vote to defeat two other candidates in the primary. He ran unopposed for a second term in 2007.
Wisslead thinks a great deal was accomplished during the past eight years. Pella Corporation's decision to build a factory in Macomb was one of the highlights. He said many people and groups worked together to make it happen.
