Utica Mayor Jacqueline Noonan has ascended to the position of vice president of the Michigan Municipal League.
The Michigan Municipal League is a nonprofit association made up of municipalities ranging from villages to cities, and Michigan municipal leaders.
After more than 25 years as the Mayor of Utica, Noonan has taken on yet another title. She has previously served on the MML’s board of directors for the Property and Liability Pool, as chair, vice chair, and secretary of Region I, and as a member of the Governance and Transportation Committees.
Noonan made the announcement at the October City Council meeting. Her term as the VP of the MML will end in 2013.
The 13-term mayor has also been a member of the SEMCOG Executive Committee and long-term chair and member of the Macomb County Mayors Association.
As if the retired French teacher’s resume isn’t long enough, she has sat on many other local boards and commissions, works with the Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and works with the Metro Detroit Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“Noonan is generally recognized as the architect of Utica’s rebirth and ongoing success as a tiny full-service city in the midst of Detroit’s suburban rim,” the MML posted online.
Last year, Noonan ran unopposed for mayor.
