Decatur - Mayor Mike McElroy has been elected to Vice President for the Illinois Municipal League.

Mayor McElroy was elected during the conference along with 35 other Vice Presidents.
"I am excited about being selected to fill this important post," said Mayor McElroy. "I am committed to serving as a strong advocate for the City of Decatur and the people of Illinois in this role and to working with my fellow board members to support the interests of the people of this state."
