Assistant earns muncipal honor
On May 9, members of the Illinois Association of Municipal Management Assistants attended the 19th annual Awards Luncheon at Harry Caray’s in Lombard to honor the contributions of their colleagues, promote the local government profession and build professional relationships, all while donating nonperishable canned food items to benefit the Lombard/Villa Park Food Pantry.
At the event, the annual awards were announced for Outstanding Member – Intern, Outstanding Member – Service, Gregory F. Ford Outstanding Member – Assistant and Outstanding Manager.
This year’s award winner from Clarendon Hills is Christina Collison Burns, assistant to the Clarendon Hills village manager, who has served for the past two years as the co‐chairman of the Membership Services Committee, forging relationships with colleges and universities in order to encourage college students to consider the field of public administration.
Burns is described as an invaluable member of the management team in Clarendon Hills, and an essential support to new Village Manager Randy Recklaus.
