Leadership & Municipal Government

Students in the R. David Tebben Community Leadership Academy learned about municipal government at today's class session. Pekin Mayor Rusty Dunn and retired City Manager Dennis Kief spoke about the challenges faced by municipalities and the need for strong leaders both on the City Council and in the city staff. The students also began their introductions of each other today. The session was held in the community room at the Pekin Public Library. Assistant Director Alissa Williams and Director Jeff Brooks gave a brief presentation on the library and a tour of the facilities, pointing out the many recent changes and updates.  You can see more pictures from chamber events at http://picasaweb.google.com/PekinChamber
