Peru says goodbye to aldermen while welcoming new members

Posted by wlpo on April 25, 2011

Two veteran aldermen and two newbies took the Peru City Council oath of office.  Judge Cynthia Raccuglia led the ceremony that was held before a standing-room only crowd Monday night.

New First Ward Alderman Mike Radtke and Second Ward Alderman Rodney Perez took their seats along with Third Ward Alderman Dave Waldorf and Fourth Ward Alderman Dave Potthoff.  His re-election earlier this month makes Potthoff the most senior current council member.

Before the new members could be seated the council gave thanks to outgoing aldermen Jack O’Beirne who opted to not run for another term after serving 24 years in ward two and Jamey Mertel who lost his re-bid after severing eight years in ward two.
