Anthony Faivre will be introduced as a nominee for DeKalb’s Seventh Ward Alderman at the November 23rd City Council meeting. Faivre’s nomination, which will be made by DeKalb Mayor John Rey, is intended to fill the vacancy created as a result of Monica O’Leary’s departure in October.
“I am very pleased to make this nomination,” Rey said. “Anthony will bring a wealth of practical experience from several organizations to the Council. “Anthony is an outstanding representative of the people and their interests.”
Aside from having more than 30 years of manufacturing experience, Faivre also serves as a deacon in the faith community, a role he has performed since 2001. In this role, Faivre coordinates community service projects and manages his church’s finances, two responsibilities he believes will translate well to his prospective new role as a DeKalb alderman.
“My family moved to the DeKalb area nearly 100 years ago and has a proud tradition of serving the community,” Faivre said. “I am eager to continue this tradition by bringing my problem-solving skills to the Council.”
Faivre earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology from Northern Illinois University and his Associate’s degree in Engineering Science from Kishwaukee College. Faivre also served in the United States Navy for four years as an electronic warfare Rey said, “Anthony’s military background illustrates his positive work ethic, values, commitment to service and his team player mentality.”
If approved by the Council, Faivre’s appointment will take effect at the December 14th Council meeting. He would then serve as the Seventh Ward Alderman until the 2017 elections, at which point the person elected will serve the remainder of the term until 2019.
