Longtime Marengo alderman resigns

MARENGO – An alderman who served for nearly a decade on Marengo’s City Council resigned late last week, citing personal reasons.

Alderman Pat Signore informed Mayor Donald Lockhart of his resignation Wednesday. He told the mayor he wanted to devote more time to his family and his work as an insurance salesman for Illinois Alliance, Lockhart said.

Signore was first elected in 2003, and he served two consecutive terms. Signore was last elected in 2011.

Lockhart has 60 days to appoint a replacement to Signore’s Ward 3 seat. The Marengo mayor said he would start vetting candidates this week toward making a recommendation.

Signore is the second Ward 3 alderman to resign within a month. Alderman Erik DeBoer resigned in early October because of time conflicts with his work. His wife, Nicole DeBoer, replaced him.
