The special guest speaker for the meeting was Congressman Mike Quigley, who discussed the challenges facing state and local governments. Congressman Quigley explained in detail how the Federal government is becoming less well-equipped to help states in declining fiscal health. He then answered a range of questions from members.
This meeting also served as a passing of the Civic Federation Board Chairman torch. Thomas J. McNulty, Partner at Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP, and Board Chairman for the past two years, handed off his Board leadership duties to the newly-elected Civic Federation Chairman Thomas Livingston, Resident Vice President at CSX Transportation. Mr. McNulty was presented with an original 19th century print as recognition for his service to the Federation. The Civic Federation also thanks long-time Vice Chairman A.G. Anglum of Harris Bank for her many years of service. Susan McKeever, an attorney at law, and Eileen Mitchell of AT&T were elected as new Civic Federation Vice Chairmen.
The Civic Federation would like to thank Board Member Michael O’Brien for hosting this meeting at the offices of Aon Corporation.
