Commissioner Gina Vattimo announced today that she will resign her seat on the Village Council effective immediately. In a letter to the Village Council, Vattimo expressed her gratitude for having the opportunity to serve the community.
"It's been my privilege to serve the Downers Grove community and to work with the highly skilled and dedicated members of the Village Council and staff. I would especially like to thank Mayor Tully for being a great mentor as well as someone who cares deeply about Downers Grove and its future," Vattimo stated.
Mayor Martin Tully said, "While her time on the Village Council was short, her contributions were many and meaningful. Her service to the community is very much appreciated."
The Village Council will work expeditiously to fill the vacancy created by her resignation.
