New Council Member In Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on June 28, 2010

The electric commissioner in Oglesby is no stranger to the position.

The Oglesby City Council Monday night unanimously named Gary Carey as the city’s new electric commissioner.  He replaces Don Finley who was named mayor.

Carey was electric commissioner in Oglesby from 1991 thru 1999 before he lost in a bid for a third term.  Since then he’s retired from the steel mill in Hennepin.

After accepting the job, Carey told the council audience not to expect miracles but he’ll give it his best shot.  He was non-committal on running for a full-term as commissioner in the April election.
