To the Editor:

Thank you to voters for your confidence and support in my recent election as mayor of the city of DeKalb. I am pleased with the outcome of my election and I look forward to serving as mayor.

Much planning went into this win, and many volunteers worked tirelessly in my campaign to get out the vote. I am grateful to everyone for their support and hard work.

I look forward to serving the citizens with vigor and responsibility.

Many people have offered congratulations and willingness to contribute in the work ahead. 

I look forward to the formal swearing into office on May 6 and have already begun the transition process. I will be meeting individually with council members and NIU leadership.

I also extend congratulations to the successful mayors, village presidents and other officials in the election.

I am thankful to all those who stepped forward as candidates for office in this consolidated election.

It is with a broad field of candidates that voters have the opportunity to select whom they feel represents their values and will serve well.   

John Rey

Mayor-elect, DeKalb
