(Michigan City, IN) - Michigan City has a new City Council president. Michael Mack was unanimously chosen by the City Council this week during the standard reorganization portion of the meeting always held by local governing bodies after the New Year. He replaces Sean Fitzpatrick, president of the City Council last year.
Mack said Fitzpatrick responded well to all he faced like the pandemic, economic downfall and riots protesting the actions of law enforcement in different parts of the nation. He said the volatile political climate added to the extremes from last year, making 2020 one of the most challenging in the history of Michigan City. “It was truly an example of calm under fire and I thank you,” he said.
Mack is in the second year of his first term on the City Council.
